  1. What a great blog you have put together! We are related, John Keatts Gregory is also my 3rd great grandfather. Our trees part ways from there however, your line is from Daniel Parham and my line is from his brother John Henry; so we are cousins. John Henry married and migrated to Madison County, TN, where he had 5 children that we know of, one being my great grandfather Lewis R Gregory. I am fascinated with my ancestors and as of today, my brother and I have amassed a tree of 7330 people, with a large assortment of records and photos documenting our ancestors. I would love to hear from you.Lynda FriesenAustin, TXlynda@austin.rr.com

  2. Lynda,Before too long, I'll gather all that I have on the Gregory line and send your way. I may have a couple of pictures and a bit more. I'm glad you like the blog; there is just not enough time these days to work on it. Sherry
