Hi Laurel,

I too am a descendant of John & Ellen Gregg. I just recently stumbled onto your web site and familly tree. So I just entered a tree for my corner of the family at http://www.myheritage.com/site-201442411/gregg I also posted some family pictures there as well, one of which is the same picture as one of yours. the "greggs".

Unfortunately I don't have any information on the ancestors back to Ireland. But if I can help with details on family members closer to me I am pleased to help. Likewise If you want copies of my pictures as I have our family photo albums back to about 1900, you are welcome.

Hi,

I am descended from John and Ellen (Hudson) Gregg, and I am curious about your connection to them.  Their daughter, Catharine was my 2x great grandmother (she married Richard Wilson).

Hope to hear from you soon, as we do not have alot of information on the Greggs.

Thanks,

Paul Wilson (Fonthill, Ontario, Canada)

Hello Michael.

Yes these are my ancestors!!  Their son George had my Grandfather Samuel George Gregg. Do you know anything about John's parents in Sligo? My records show that he was orphaned young. And Anything on the Hudsons would be very much appreciated too. I can find no records of Ellen's parents. Her brothers and John Gregg are recorded as haviong found the army pay and were honest young men and returned it. I don't know their names. I would love to find out anything about either line in my tree.

Thanks for replying.

11901 census  Sligo Ireland  listed  a Gregg family in Sligo town but I could not find any there now

I lived in Riverstown  Sligo From 1954 until 1990 and still vist my dad there every year . He is 91 years old 

I am sending you details of the Sligo heritage centre and an independent  researcher who might be able toi get you more information

Thank you very much, Michael!! You are so lucky to have lived there. I'm hoping to get over for a visit some day. I'll try the sites you sent me. Finding things pre- 1901 census may be difficult without help.

How do you know about John Gregg and Ellen Hudson? Are they part of your family too?

Hi Laurel,

I found your name, linked to John Gregg.  I am descended from John and Ellen. Their daugher, Catharine, was my 2x great grandmother.  I would be interested in corresponding further.  I am very interested in getting more information about the army pay story.  How do you know that information?

Have you also heard back from the Michael you were corresponding with?   I am also interested to learn about the Sligo, Ireland roots.

I recently drove through Clifford, Ontario, which is where your ancestor, George Gregg, was married to his second wife, Janet Dickson.  Since Clifford was fresh on my mind, I researched the Gregg family again, and found your message post on this board.

Hope to hear from you,

Paul Wilson (Fonthill, Ontario, Canada)

Hi Paul

We must be distant cousins.

I have been able to find John's birth record in Sligo. His parents were Hugh Gregg and Mary Walker. That's as far as I can go, so far.

The story of the army pay was in a small book about the Gregg family that I inherited. 

My connection was from their son George, who farmed in Howick, Huron Co. His son was my grandfather, Samuel George.

Click on the smartmatch symbol for John or Ellen and find me. Request membership for my site. Or contact me directly at Laurel.Laurin@videotron.ca

I would be delighted to get to know you and your family.

Your cuz, 

Laurel
