Mattie Gregory 5 (5 April 1880-10 June 1958), married George Crafton and had a daughter Myrtle Lee but separated from George when Myrtle was nine months old. Mattie then married Dudley Stevenson. She was living with her parents at the time of her marriage to Dudley. The child Myrtle was very dissatisfied and prevailed to move back to her grandparents home where she remained until she grew up and married. Her grandmother later lived with Myrtle until her death. Mattie and Dudley’s children: Lee; Lillie Mae; Coy; John Henry; Betty Lorene; Eva.
Betty Lorene Stevenson 6, was the fifth child of Mattie Gregory and Dudley. Betty Lorene married Coy White. Coy was a brother to Larvelle who married Lee. Their children: Coy Jr.; Betty; Margaret; Gloria; Ricky; Charles; Tommy. After Coy Whites’s death, Lorene married -?- Dickerson. He died in an auto accident in 1994.

John Archie (Johnnie Jr.) Gregory, Jr. 6 (23 June 1920-26 December 1989) married Della Narvelle Roberts (26 April 1925). Johnnie Jr. served in WWII. He was MIA and was decorated. He died of congestive heart failure. Their children: Myrtle Kay (20 May 1946); Myrtis Fay born premature and died in infancy; Jimmy Dianne; Gerald Wade; and Douglas Wayne.

Gerald’s second marriage was to Dorothy King from Laurel, Ms. His third marriage was to Robin Hardy, who has a daughter Ragan Denise Mitchell (26 April 1972), from a previous marriage. Gerald and Robin lost a son Toby Wade (still born) in 1983. They have two sons: Johnnie Hunter McCall (22 November 1993); Jessie Code (4 August 1995). Gerald is in auto sales.

Isaac J. Gregory, Jr. 2 (6 August 1801, Union County, S.C.-24 June 1865, Pickens County, Ala.) was a son of Gerard and Freelove Gregory. Gerard, as almost all the other Gregorys, named a son “Isaac.” This Isaac has been no less difficult to identify than all the others.
A land sale dated 3 July 1827 (Union County Deed Book S, P. 483), and precipitated just prior to his removal from that area identified both Isaac and his wife, Harriet. Isaac was apparently still in Union County when he and his brothers sold land to the Porter family in 1831, but he was in Alabama by 1834.
The Alabama census of 1850 shows five children at home: Elcy, 1825 (South Carolina); H. Caroline, 1834 (Alabama); John, 1837 (Alabama); Emma, 1839 (Alabama); and Eugene, 1842 (Alabama).
A Trust deed recorded in Tuscaloosa, Alabama lists Isaac as one of several trustees of an unnamed Methodist Episcopal Church.
His death notice in the Southern Christian Advocate indicates that seven children survived him.
“Mrs. H.C. (Harriet Caroline) Spain, daughter of Rev. Isaac Gregory, died near Columbus, Mississippi, 17 July 1886, aged 31 years, 8 months. Married John H. Spain, June 1852.”
A marriage record in Tuscaloosa, Alabama reflects the union of Isaac Gregory and Elizabeth Huffman, 3 April 1858, at the residence of John Huffman. This may or may not to be son of Rev. Isaac J. Gregory.
Jehu Gregory (30 October 1798-11 July 1852), son of Gerard and Freelove Gregory, married Lettice Gregory, daughter of Jeremiah and Lettice Young Gregory, probably in 1822. The date is calculated from their eldest child’s birth year, Emeline Perry Gregory was born ca. 1823.
The birth and death dates of Lettice Gregory are unknown. Calculations, from her age shown at the 1850 and 1860 censuses, lead us to believe she was born ca. 1801. A tombstone in the Gregory Family Cemetery, bearing no dates, marks the grave of “Liddie” Gregory. It is believed (though evidence is circumstantial) that Lettice died between 6 July 1863 and 12 September 1864 and is buried in that grave. If the grave does not belong to her, it can only be assumed that her grave is unmarked or the tombstone destroyed.
The following petition is proof that Jehu’s sons, Jeremiah Benjamin and Andrew Jackson preceded him in death. So indicate in each of their information that they died before 1857 and after the death of their father.
IN THE COURT OF ORDINARY
To B. Johnson Esq., Ordinary for Union District
The petition of the undersigned respectfully shewth unto________ that Jehu Gregory late of said District departed this life on or about the 11th day of July 1852 leaving his will and testament duly executed (the same being now of record in your office) in which he left his two sons J. Benjamin & A. J. Gregory, Executors — and your petitioner further hereby informs you that since the death of the said Jehu Gregory, the said J. B. Gregory and A. J. Gregory, Executors of the said Jehu Gregory as aforesaid have both died, and upon their death, W. T. Gregory, Esq., was appointed Administrator of the said Estate with the will annexed and now about to remove to the west and desires to be released from the further administration of the said Estate. Therefore your petitioner, the widow of the said Jehu Gregory humbly prays that she be appointed administrator of this Estate with the will annexed in place of the said W. T. Gregory upon complying with the law in such case made and provide and as in duty bound your petitioner will ever pray.
18 November 1857
A deed (Union County Deed Book Z18, p. 599) signed by her son, Jehu C. Gregory, indicates she was still living at the date of the instrument (6 July 1863). This deed records the sale to T.J. Jones of half a tract of 145 acres “whereon my mother, Mrs. Lettice Gregory, widow of Jehu Gregory, deceased, now lives and has a lifetime estate; and, at her death, to be equally divided between W.T. Gregory and the said, Jehu C. Gregory …”
Waties T. Gregory, the other son referred to in the deed, sold the remaining half of the tract to T.J. Jones on 12 September 1864 (Union County Deed Book A19, p. 132).
The 1850 Census of Agriculture indicates Jehu owned 416 acres of land. He owned five horses, three mules, four milch cows, five head of cattle, eleven sheep and thirty swine. The value of his real estate was $4160; the value of his farm implements, $250; and the value of his livestock, $511.
Jehu and Lettice Gregory were the parents of ten known children. Their birth dates (in some cases) are not available or (in other cases) conflict. For this reason, they may or may not be presented in order of birth. The children were: Emeline Perry; Mary Elizabeth; Nancy Macey (or Macon); Jeremiah Benjamin; Andrew Jackson; Sarah Ann Catherine; Jehu Christopher; Cecily Cornelia, Waties Turrentine; and Harvey Simpson.
Emeline Perry Gregory 3(ca. 1823-?), the first daughter of Jehu and Lettice Gregory, married Charles Young. Brent Holcomb, researcher of the Young and Humphries families, lists Charles’ date of birth as 1814 and his death date as ca. 1882. Charles and Emeline are thought to be buried at Bogansville Baptist Church. Three graves, located in the same area of the cemetery, are marked Charles Young, E.Y., and B.Y. It is believed that these are the graves of Charles, Emeline and their son, Benjamin; but has not been conclusively proven. Charles and Emeline Perry Gregory Young were the parents of four known children: J. Simpson; Nancy Ann; J. Christopher; and Benjamin.
Nancy Ann (Nanny) Young 4 (ca. 1846-?) married Jared W.E. Young. Jared served in Company A, 18th South Carolina Infantry, CSA. They are also buried at Bogansville. No dates appear on their tombstones.
Nancy Macon (Macey) Gregory 3 (30 April 1822 -24 July 1916), third daughter of Jehu and Lettice Gregory, was born in Union County and died in Broesebeck, Limestone County, Texas. She married Gerard Singleton Gregory (6 April 1819-26 July 1887), son of Isaac “Lipham” Gregory.
Gerard and Nancy disappeared from Union County after the 1870 census and later were found in Limestone County, Texas. Their children are listed in the section devoted to Gerard Singleton Gregory, located within the John Gregory line.
Additional information about the family was provided by Betty B. Jackson of Huber Heights, Ohio.
Andrew Jackson Gregory (ca. 1832-?) was also living at home in 1850. Both Jeremiah Benjamin and Andrew Jackson were deceased by 1857 (information gleaned from Jehu’s estate packet located in Box 36, p. 25, Union County).
Jehu Christopher Gregory (ca. 1835-1865), son of Jehu and Lettice Gregory, was a Private in the Seventh Regiment, Company E, South Carolina Cavalry when he died of disease at Appomattox. He was listed as thirty years old in the records of the War Between the States located in the Union County Probate Office. (See Confederate Pension Applications Register.)
Jehu Christopher 3 married Charlotte C. -?- (28 August 1841-6 May 1907). She is buried at Putnam Church Cemetery, Union. They had three children, all under five years of age at the time of their father’s death: Kate; Sarah (Sallie); and Susan Eliza. The 1870 census indicates Kate was born in 1861. The 1900 census lists Sarah’s birth as March, 1862; and Susan Eliza’s as February, 1864.
The 1880 census reflects that Charlotte, Kate, Sarah and Susan lived in four different homes. Charlotte lived alone and lists her occupation as a seamstress (p.445). Kate was a companion for a woman named Sallie Jones in Goshen Hill (p. 500). Sarah was a farm laborer with a Bailey family at Cross Keys (p. 456). Susan was a housekeeper for the George A. Anderson family (p. 446).
Sarah (Sallie) Gregory 4 (March 1862) married, first: J.S. Gasaway (January 1863) ca. 1888. Charlotte lived with this couple in 1900. J.S. and Sallie had no children at that time. It is suspected that J.S. Gasaway died and “Sallie” Gregory Gasaway married, second: John G. Goings. Two persons buried beside Charlotte bear these names. John G. Goings died 29 December 1928 and Sallie Goings died 12 October 1931.
Susan Eliza Gregory 4 (February 1864), the third child of Jehu Christopher and Charlotte C. Gregory, married S.A. Gregory late in 1880 or early in 1881. Their first child, Martha, was born in October 1881. Their other children (as listed on p. 159 of the 1900 census of Union County) were: William, January 1883; Ellen, October 1886; Clara, March 1891; Maggie, November 1893; and Lois, September 1899. The census indicates three children were deceased in 1900. These could be the “Gregory infants” buried in Putnam Cemetery. The only date indicated on this plot is 1896.
Waties Turrentine Gregory 3 (October 1840, Union County, S.C.-ca. 1900, Groesbeck, Limestone County, Texas), son of Jehu and Lettice Gregory, enlisted for Confederate Service in Company A, 18th Regiment, Infantry, in January 1862. He was discharged at Camp Guerin in May 1862. The reason given for this discharge was “over-age.” This must have been a mistake because all records indicate he was only 22 years old at the time.
He married Mary -?- (1840). After the War Between the States, the couple and some of their children moved to Personsville, Limestone County, Texas in a wagon train after 1870. The couple later moved to Shiloh in 1880 on the old James farm and from there to Big Hill, Texas where the land was fertile and rich. The family had one of the first country homes built in Big Hill; the lumber used in the structure was from Alexandria, Louisiana, being shipped by rail to Mart, then to Big Hill by wagon.
Waties and Mary were the parents of six children: James Henry; Benjamin T; Luther Eugene; Sarah Susan; N. Allace; John W.

After his children were grown with family of their own, Luther moved back to Groesbeck where he died. He is buried in the Fort Parker Cemetery because the road was so mudddy that they could not get to Big Hill where Eliza, the mother of his children, was buried. His second wife, Frances is buried beside him.
Luther Eugene’s wife, Eliza Grace, was born in Henry County, Alabama. She died one day after the birth of their youngest child.
