but you can probably access it using a large public or
The last two have US census records from

This is my first post and I hope someone will be able to assist me. I’m working
on my husband’s family tree and history and need to find out more about some of
his family who emigrated from Leeds, England to New York.
Samuel Gross and his wife, Jessie nee Sloman, were married on 19 January 1859
in Leeds and left almost immediately for America. They lived in Brooklyn where their four children were born viz. Hyman
(1861); Rebecca (1865); Solemon Richard (1871) and Reuben (9 Feb 1875).
Hyman married Lillian (born April 1867 in Pennsylvania) and they had two sons; Walter
E (11 June1890-March 1964) and Howard J (12 July1897). Walter married Anne
Strasser (May 1899, New York) and they had two sons; Stanley (1923) and Harold
I think Rebecca married Abraham Goldsmith but I’m not sure of this.
Solomon Richard married Etta but I don’t know any more about this couple.
I know nothing more about Reuben.
If anyone can help further I’d be most appreciative.
