One Township's Yesterdays Chapter XXIX  


The GROSSMAN family came to the vicinity of Lake Maxinkuckee at an early date. They took up land in the Wolf Creek neighborhood and in the northeastern part of Union Township. MICHAEL GROSSMAN was the pioneer of the family, He was from Pennsylvania. Various other well-known families of this region were connected with the GROSSMANs. The SHOEMAKERs were affiliated. We hear frequent mention of the Shoemaker and Grossman bridges spanning the Yellow River. These bridges of course were so named from the families that early settled in the vicinity. Likewise connected with the GROSSMANs were the ZEHNERs, including the widely-known millers, of Wolf Creek, Sligo and Plymouth.

D. S. Grosssman [GROSSMAN] was the landowner of Union Township. In the 'seventies he had considerable farming property in the Rutland section of the township, including several separate tracts, one of approximately 86 acres, another of about 83 acres, and a third of nearly the same acreage.
