C. Gerard Gregory 2 (ca. 1800-13 May 1882), the fifth son of Gerard and Freelove, was called Jarrett Jr., Jerard and Gerard.

By 1820, Jarret Jr. (C. Gerard) had married his first wife, Margaret -?- (who probably died in childbirth in 1830), and was living near his mother. He married at a young age and had a son (name unknown) almost two years old and a daughter, Susannah, born in 1820. Other children of this union: Elizabeth, 1822; David C., 1824; Rachel, 1825; and Robert Jordan, 12 July 1830.

C. Gerard married Mary (Polly) Comer (?-2 October 1893) in 1831. To this union were born: Daniel, 2 February 1832; Gasmond H., 1833; Angeline Emily, 1836; Richard V., 1837; Clifton John, 8 October 1838; Jason Gerard, 1841; Martha, 1842; Simpson Lefarit, 10 May 1844; Amanda, 1846; Roberta Marenda, 1849; Elizabeth Frances, 1851; and Thomas H., 1854.

The first official record regarding Gerard, a deed legalizing the sale of 258 acres of land to him by Benjamin J. Gregory, starts out “I John B. Gregory …” and had Benjamin J. Gregory superimposed over the former name. (Union County Deed Book T, pps. 146-).

Freelove Gregory, by Deed of Gift, transferred 28¼ acres on Brown’s Creek to him, 3 June 1828 (execution). The deed was recorded 21 February 1829. Gerard and his first wife sold 227 acres to Joseph Tate, 30 October 1829 (execution date). Margaret signed the dower relinquishment, 24 November 1829, and the deed was recorded (Union County Deed Book B, p. 83) on 2 May 1831. Two McJunkins, J.T. and George W., witnessed this deed. They may have been relatives of Margaret.

The government had opened up new land in Alabama. C. Gerard’s cousin, Levi, had already moved; and C. Gerard and his wife, Polly sold their land in order to follow. Polly was still holding baby, Richard V. (the last child born in South Carolina), in her lap when she had Clifton John in Georgia on the way to Alabama. The well-worn route took them close to St. Clair County, Alabama, where they are found in 1840. They soon arrived at cousin Levi’s, who always had the latchkey out for relatives and friends. The C. Gerard Gregory family settled in Pickens County, Alabama, where the rest of the children were born.

In the year 1862, the Confederate Army was seeking volunteers.
Eight of C. Gerard’s sons joined. They were:
David C.; Robert J.; Daniel; Gasmond H.; Richard V; Jason Gerard;
and Simpson Lefarit, who was just 18 years old.
The sons who died in the War Between the States were:
David C.; Gasmond H.; Richard V; and Jason Gerard.

Polly and Gerard’s last days were spent in Green County, Alabama, although they did not move. The family lived on the Sipsey River,  Image LInk which was the borderline between Pickens County and Green County, and the border changed. Gerard’s children played on both sides of the river.

C. Gerard lived to be 83. Polly – beloved of all her sons, stepsons, daughters and step-daughter – fell on 12 February 1893 and broke her hip. She died in October of that year. Marenda and Thomas H. had taken care of their parents and farm over the years, and continued to live there after Gerard and Polly’s deaths.

C. Gerard (Gerord) Gregory’s name appears in the History of Alabama and her People, giving C. Gerard’s wife’s name as Molly Holmes. This was with Clifton John Gregory, his wife, Lucinda, and son, Verdo Virtis.

David C. Gregory 3 (1824-17 June 1865),  Image LInk first known son of C. Gerard and his first wife, Margaret, was born in Union County. David was in his teens when his family traveled to Alabama where he grew up, helping his father farm, first in St. Clair County and then in Pickens County.

David C. (or “D.C.” as he signed his name) met and married Elizabeth Massie in 1849 and lived in Franklin County, Alabama. Their children: Margaret B. (Babe), 1850; William Robert (Bud), 6 January 1851; Mary G.C. (Sis), 1855; and Elija Gerard (Lige), 1856.

Tragedy came to David C. in 1856. He lost his beloved wife, Elizabeth. She was standing near the fireplace ironing when her skirt caught fire and she was so severely burned, she died. Lige was just a baby. His life was saved when his six-year-old sister carried him out of the burning house.

David returned to Pickens County to be near his parents so they could help him rear his young family. He met Martha Ann Smith, who lived with her parents on the Sipsey River nearby. They were married in 1861 and Martha Ann became an instant mother to Elizabeth’s children. David and Martha settled in Tuscaloosa County. Their sons were: David Allen W., 21 June 1862; and Richard Daniel Simpson, 11 June 1864.

The two boys were born at the home of Martha’s parents, Archie and Milly Smith, in Green County because David was away at war. He had enlisted, 1 April 1862, as a Private in Company F, 41st Regiment, Alabama Infantry Volunteers.

There were many months and years of war. David returned home on furlough a few times and wrote often to his wife, Martha, and family. He was a kind and compassionate man who constantly sent his love to others: “Kennedy and Susan” (his oldest sister and her husband), and his father and mother. Once he wrote, “I wish I could hear Polly laugh.”. He counseled and advised Martha Ann, and encouraged and praised his family. David also kept track of his brothers, Robert J., Daniel, Gasmond (Hamp), Dick, Clifton John (Jehu), Jason and Simpson Lefarit, always sending word of them to their father and mother.

David was in his early forties when the war ended. He wrote to Martha Ann from Petersburg, Virginia on 4 January 1865: “think if thar ant a change soon the boys will change it purty D_ Q_-. I think the leaders of this little institution is in a close place … Bob is coming home on furlough, send me a little sashedge (sausage).” Martha Ann received one more letter from Petersburg, dated March 1865. He wrote, “I thank you a thousand times for the sashedge, meat and cakes. I hope this war may close soon so we can git home in Peas (sic) for this is a horrible life to live. The Yanks has mity ny got us huting (hurting).”

David had been captured in the last great battle and taken prisoner. He died in a United States prison hospital at Petersburg on 17 June 1865 and was buried on P. West’s farm in Newport News, Virginia. In 1900, he, along with other Confederate soldiers, was re-interred in the Greenlawn Cemetery. David was chosen to be placed under the Lee Camp Confederate Monument.

Martha Ann struggled through the war years to raise their children. The years after the war were still difficult. Her step-children were now on their own so she left the farm (taking her sons, David Allen, 18, and Simpy, 16) to go to Mississippi. They lived in Denmark, a small farming community.

Between 1895 and 1898, David Allen and his wife moved to Comanche County, Texas, taking his mother with them. The family first settled in the community of Robertson Springs near the town of DeLeon. Most of their near relatives followed them.

The following letters were written by David C. Gregory to his wife, Martha Ann, during the War Between the States. They are transcribed exactly as written; no attempt has been made to correct spelling or punctuation. The letters poignantly express the war from the eyes of a Private. The cost of the war was high to David. He was away from his wife, his children, his parents. He could not provide for his family. He saw his brother die and could do nothing to stop it. And, finally, he lost his own life. All he really wanted was to go home.

Dear Friend
I embrace the present opportunity of dropping you a few lines to let you know that I have not forgotten you yet. We have seen hard times since you left us. You thought we had hard times before you left. We have seen the elephant (the beast) you may guess we got into the fight and I will tell you it was know (no) Stevenson affair jumping in the branch was no object. We would have been glad for it to have been a Stevenson scrape but it was not as. Bob wrote all the knews. I have nothing to write. I will again you must write to me as soon as you get this. Write all the news in general. Write all the news that you can get in the country.

Yours as ever Thomas N. Mennell (perhaps Merrill)

To David Gregory
the rarieter (writer) sends his love and respects to you and family.

JAN 31, 1863
Dear Brother
I received your most kind letter yesterday which afforded me great satisfaction to hear from you and to learn that you were all mostly well. I am quite sorry that you are so diseased but you are ginerly better off at home diseased than you would home in good health but it is all the Lords work he knows what is best. I have been quite well except colds for some time past until last night I taken a chill which lasted me several hours.
From you letter it looks like that some of them know what soldiers will do after being out one or two years. I wish the soldiers could have the provelige of passing through the country. I think it would stimulate those at home to get up a peace convention. I think thay would see the fruits of war and haul in their War Signs and advocate peace.
Some think that we will have a big battle here but there is no telling anything about it. I think that we are staying here in order to get all the wheat and corn fodder here out of this country back to Bridgeport and then we will fall back there to protect Chattanoga as that seems to be the point to save as all our provisions are there for the whole western army.
There is a great many reports now in regard to peace. It is reported in camp this morning that some of the Lincoln men passed through here last night on their was to Richmond to the Confederate Congress to go in Convention with us to get about peace. Numerous reports afloat. I do not know wether any of them are true or not but I hope some of them are true for if we could have peace once more in our land and all get home what a happy time it would be.
You can state to the old man that I have sent him fifty dollars by Lieutenant Clements. 31 dollars of Dicks and 19 dollars of Hamps. Hamp had four dollars a half and I sold his clothes which made the balance. As for Dicks and Franklins clothes I have never heard any thing from them at all. I think there was a misunderstanding in Dr. Gregory in regard to that for we have never heard anything from them at all.
Tell the old man to write to me as soon as he get the money that I have sent to him. So that is all I can think of to write at this time. So I will come to close. Good-bye for this time. Yours as ever.

David Gregory to R.I. Gregory
