Tombstone Tuesday: Mattie Grace Grob Large (1892-1992)

MattieGraceGrobLargeSome Tombstone Tuesday articles just beg to be written because the subject lived such a long and purposeful life.  Today’s article is one of those.

Mattie Grace Grob was born on January 16, 1892 in Leavenworth, Kansas to parents Mathias and Martha (Kuellmer) Grob.  Mathias was born in Germany in 1849 and immigrated with his parents to Ohio when he was four years old.  Martha was the daughter of German immigrants and was born in Ohio in 1854.  Mathias and Martha married on November 4, 1879 and to their marriage were born nine children, six of them living to adulthood, although their oldest child Elizabeth died at the age of thirty-six.
