James GREGORY appears in Taxables 1781-1791, 244 acres St. Lawrence
Dist. I did not find him a taxable on lists 1793,1794,1797,1798;
neither found conveyance of the 244 a.
Person Co. Court Min. Sep. Court 1799 - ordered that Abram GRIGORY
admr & C sell the personal property of James GRIGORY DEC'D.

WILLIAM GREGORY - possibly an impt figure in linking James Gregory to
earlier Goochland Co., Va.
1-No land or taxable record in Person Co.
2-Person Co. DB B:1 24 Jan. 1793 William GRIGORY of Co. of York SC to
"my brother" Joseph GRIGORY of Person Co., a certain negro man named
James which was willed to me by my Grandfather George THOMPSON of
Goochland Co. in Commonwealth of VA. . . . in my name ack. & recover
said negro slave James of & from a certain Robert DONALSON of Co. of

THOMSON, both in this parish 1756, Nov." p. 53 "Baptisms: James
GREGORY & Sarah THOMPSON a son named William born Aug. 11, 1758. Bapt.
Dec. 3, 1758."

4-I briefly searched Goochland Co., Va. records. The will of George
THOMPSON mentions dau. Sarah GREGORY and the slave, James,
willed to grandson William GREGORY. No other Gregory grandchildren
mentioned. George THOMPSON was of St. James Northam Parish. I found
no deed record of James GREGORY. The only Gregory deed records I
found were same parish of a Samuel GREGORY "of Charles City Co., Va."

5-See additional pension records of William GREGORY of Lincoln Co.,
NC. Chil. & yr of births given are: Sally 1779; Thomson 1780; Johnson
1782; Mary 1783; Marget 1783; Fanny GREGORY 1786; Hoza 1788; Joseph
1790; Elizabeth 1792; Ann 1791; Elizabeth 1793; Margaret 1794; Nancy
1795; Susan 1800; Mata 1803.
With the pension records is filed the family register of William
GREGORY. First page reads "Book of Memoranda For William GREGORY
1789; Virginia Halifax County &C" The heading is pen-decorated with
dots, leaves, etc.

6-1830 Cen. of Lincoln Co., NC lists a Joseph GREGORY (prob. s/o
William); not on 1840. 1850 Cen. Owen Co., Ind. p. 97 Joseph GREGORY

Joseph GREGORY - No record in deed books, other than the item
mentioned under brother William GREGORY.
1793 Joseph GREGORY 1st appears as a taxable in St. Lawrence
This is a non-alphabetical list. Nearby names suggest the
vicinity of James GREGORY & other Gregory records in Person. Names
incl. George FULLER for Henry FULLER estate (possibly this should be
"Fulcher"); Ezekeel HARALSON & others.
1793, 1794 & 1795 Taxables show Joseph GREGORY 1 white poll and no
acreage. He disappears from Person record after 1795.

Abraham GREGORY-assuming there was one & that Abram & Abraham were the
same. There were never two on tax lists for any single year. He 1st
appeared Caswell taxable 1785 1 WP, 0 BP, 100 a.; 1786 1 WP, 2 BP, 250
a.; 1787 1 WP, 0 BP 0 a.; 1788 1 WP, 0 BP 0 a.; all St. Lawrence Dist.
To this point, James GREGORY & Abraham/Abram were the only Gregorys
shown taxables in Caswell & were same dist. I found no deed record to
reflect the above acreage for Abraham. 1789, 1790 & 1791
Abraham/Abram was taxed Nash Dist. Person Co. tax lists are a broken
series, however 1797 Abram GREGORY appears again St Lawrence Dist. 1
WP, 0 BP, 0 a.
Person Co. DB D:138 19 Apr. 1809 Abraham GREGORY pur. 33 a.
from James LONG adj. Frankey WATKINS, William BAIRD, sd Longs
plantation, on Adams Creek.
Pension Records:
In the NC State Library Search Room, Person Co. Misc. Records,
Box C.R.078.928.3 is pension application dated 12 Sep. 1820, with his
own signature "Abram GREGORY." Among his assets is listed 33 acres of
land under deed of trust. Page 3 ". . . my family consists of myself
& wife Mary who is about 58 years of age, a daughter Oney 23 year of
age, a son Osborn 19 years, Elizabeth 17. Abram gives his own age as
60 yrs. Certificate of Pension shows Chasey GREGORY, widow of Abram
GREGORY rec'd at the rate of 96 dollars per annum from 4 Mar. 1861,
ending 17 Nov. 1863 & payable to John BUCHANNAN admr for __________?
Another certificate identifies her as widow of Abram GREGORY, private
of the Rev. War, of Person Co., NC. It is possible that Abraham
GREGORY remarried and that Mary and Chasey were not the same. The
children named in the above pension application were likely the chil.
in the home at the time of application. I found no record identifying
other chi.

this file saved to disk.

Note: The following is from a hard-to-read copy of material sent to me
by a descendant of one Thomas Gregory of Cumberland Co., NC. Its
source was given as the Vertical File at the NC State Lib., but the
librarian and I have not been able to locate it.


Robert Glenn, who was born in 1775 and died in March, 1839, married
Fanny (Frances) Gregory. Her father, William James Grgory, was a
Revolutionary soldier and his application for a pension furnishes most
of the detailed information given here. He moved from Hyco River,
Halifax County, Virginia, to Orange County, N.C. before the
Revolutionary War, and lived there until the close of the war, when he
moved for a short time to _____? County and then to Lincoln County,
where he died. He and his wife are buried at Olney in graves marked
by rough field stones only. He was born Aug. 11, 1750[1] and died
July 11 1836. On Jan. 1, 1779, he married Margaret Morris, who was
born June 13, 1758, and died in April, 1850. They had fifteen
children. Filed with his application is a page from his Bible, giving
his family record. It seems to be in his handwriting and appears in
part, at least, to have been copied from memory, as certain dates are
evidently wrong. As there is no way to check these dates, they are
given as they are found. According to this record, their children

1. Sally, born Nov. 4, 1779;
2. Thomson, born May 17, 1780;
3. Johnson, born Jan. 6, 1783; [1782]
4. Mary, born April 15, 1783;
5. Margaret, born Jan. 13, 1785;
6. Fanny, born July 5, 1786;
7. Hosea, born Jan. 7, 1788;
8. Joseph, born April 2, 1790;
9. Elizabeth, born Jan. 15, 1792;
10. Elizabeth, born July 4, 1793;
11. Margaret, born Aug. 14, 1794;
12. Nancy, born May 2, 1795;
13. Susan, born Dec. 22, 1795; [1800]
14. Anne, born May 24, 1791;
15. Martha, born Feb. 10, 1803

The first Elizabeth in the above list died before the next,
naming later children for earlier ones that had died was not unusual,
child was born, or there is an error in names. Anna married John
Kincaid, a Revolutionary soldier. According to her tombstone at
Olney, she died Sept. 17, 1868, "aged 71 years." She must, then, have
been born in 1797 rather than in 1791. Her husband was about 52 years
older than she was. William Gregory saw service against the Indians
on the frontier in Burke
County in 1774. In 1780 he served against the British on Broad River;
against Tories at Shallow Ford, Yadkin River; to guard prisoners taken
