Origin of name Eveline Gross

Evaline Street is named for Eveline Gross, the wife of Augustus H. Gross, who once owned much of the land from Penn Avenue to Liberty Avenue between what are now Edmond Street and Aiken Avenue (for whom nearby Gross Street is named).[1][2]

Eveline was the daughter of Harriet Fitch Ingalls by her first husband; Harriet later became the second wife of John[a] Conrad Winebiddle, Jr. (see Winebiddle Street), and as Winebiddle's stepdaughter, Eveline (and her husband) inherited a large estate in the East End.[3][4][5][6] After the death of Dr. Gross, the property went to his widow, and in her will she left the land to their adopted daughter Mathilda, eponym of nearby Mathilda Street.[7][8][2]
