Charles M. Grossman Socorro County, New Mexico

Charles M. Grossman is proprietor of a ranch twenty-five miles west of San Marcial, on which he is raising cattle, horses and mules. He was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, August 11, 1874, and comes of German ancestry. He arrived in New Mexico in 1896 when a young man of twenty-two years, and was employed for two years on a ranch. At the expiration of that period he purchased cattle and has since been engaged in business on his own account. He now has about one thousand acres of patented land and about one thousand head of cattle, and has become recognized as a leading and prosperous ranchman, whose practical efforts are factors in his success.

On the 29th of October, 1889, Mr. Crossman was married to Miss Lula M. Darrow, a native of Abilene, Kansas, and they have a daughter, Maude Louise. His political allegiance is given to the Republican Party, but he is without aspiration for public office. Fraternally he is connected with San Marcial Lodge, I. O. O. F.
