Credit must be given to Jim & Kay GREGG who did most of the legwork researching the ancestery of the this family. This genealogy is by no means complete. Meanwhile I would be very pleased to hear from all those reading these pages who recognize errors and/or omissions or those who have additional information that would either help make this narrative more complete or more interesting to those reading it in the future.
