Philip Grossman   

PHILIP GROSSMAN, son of John F. and Christina (Fass) Grossman, was born in Wurtemberg, Germany. He came to this country with his parents in 1850, who located in Allegheny county, three miles south of Pittsburgh, where his father died in 1860 and his mother in 1885. Philip learned the trade of baker, and worked in various parts of the country until 1861, when he settled in Franklin and started the first bakery in the place. In August, 1861, he sold his business and removed to Rynd Farm on Oil creek, and engaged in merchandising, where he remained until the death of his father-in-law, John Minich, when he returned to Franklin and purchased the brewery which he has since conducted. Mr. Grossman was married in February, 1862, to Josephine, daughter of John Minich, and by this marriage six children have been born: John F., Edward F., Joseph P., Louisa, Victoria, and Philip, Jr. He is a member of the I. 0. 0. F., I. 0. R. M., and the A. 0. U. W., and in politics is a Democrat.
