I have found a record for the birth of John Gregg July 1811, to Hugh Gregg and Mary Walker. From there on I get stuck. The parish records and civil records are hard to find before 1800. Does anyone have any connection to either Hugh or Mary?
I don't think we have a match. My John Gregg was born 1811 in the city of Sligo to Hugh Gregg and Mary Walker. Before them is a mystery. They still might have been related somehow. All the Greggs had some connection, no doubt.
Laurel, I believe we are chasing the same information here. My John Gregg (my great x3 grandfather) was married to Ellen Hudson and was born in Sligo, Ireland about 1811. I believe his father was Hugh Gregg.
My lineage - John Stuart Gregg Jr. (me) - John Stuart Gregg - Horace Lorne Crawford Gregg - John James Gregg - George Gregg - John Gregg - Hugh Gregg. I have multiple references for all links but to Hugh and earlier.
Tracing the above family and interested in information about David Gregg born in Yorkshire(?) in 1826 ,died in Australia (Tasmania) in 1917 and was married to a Margaret Connelly (this may have been Kinelly) from Ireland.
