The Henry Grass Family 1890's
This is a photograph of the family of Henry Grass and Mary Dorcas Irwin. Standing left to right are Floyd May Grasz, William H. Grass, Emma Mellinger (William's first wife) and Hugh Grasz. The members of the family spelled their names differently. The original spelling, however, was Gross. The photograph was taken in Nappanee Indiana, about 1894. This photograph belonged to Floyd and was his only one. He kept it in his dresser drawer and looked at it often. On 21 March 1903, Henry and Mary became residents of the Indiana State Soldiers Home in Lafayette, Indiana. Floyd went to live with his brother Will. Floyd married Tressa Ethel Wilson in 1906. He lived in Nappanee until he became a resident of Greencroft Home in Goshen late in his life.
