On This Day in 1782

227 Years Ago Today
June 10, 1782 – May 28, 1843

My 3rd great grandfather, John Keatts Gregory(William, John, Thomas III, Thomas II, Thomas) was one of nine children born to William and Martha (Tucker) Gregory. John married Elizabeth Holland (Corder) in 1818; they had fifteen children, moved to Clear Fork, VA and are interred at the Daniel Gregory Cemetery, Tazewell County, VA.

  1. John Keatts Gregory
  2. Maryan Polly Gregory
  3. William Gregory, Jr.
  4. Lowry Gregory
  5. Elizabeth Gregory
  6. Richard Dennis Gregory
  7. Nancy Gregory
  8. Martha Patsy Gregory
  9. Robert T. Gregory

I believe this is a relative of John Keatts, but I do not have the exact relation yet; he was probably an uncle or great uncle.

Bessee M. Keesee was born in Pulaski, VA and died in Suffolk, VA. She married my 2nd cousin, 2x removed, George R. Gregory. He was born in Gratton, VA in 1891 and died August 8, 1969 in Bluefield, WV. Both Bessee and George are buried at Mount Olivet Cemetery in Gratton.

George was the great grandson of John Keatts Gregory (above).
