Benjamin Franklin Gregory 5 (20 June 1871-23 January 1963),  Image LInk the first child of Andrew Gregory and Caroline Mabry, married on 25 December 1895, Leah Musgrove Gallman, (14 January 1870-8 November 1962). They were married in Pocolet, Union County, South Carolina, at the Preysbyterian Parsonage of Rev. Albert A. James, and traveled there in a two wheel wagon pulled by a white mule. Leah carried a bunch of violets. Ben and Leah went on a honeymoon to Asheville, N.C. Ben lived near Elford Grove school. Her mother gave her four sheets, four quilts, and Lona Scott Gallman gave her a pretty towell. They later lived in a one room log cabin and his father Andrew and Ben’s brother, States, moved in with them after they bought a farm, where they lived all their lives. Leah washed in wooden tubs at the spring. She raised turkeys and loved to read and study geography. In later years she would sit by the window and fireplace, in her rocker and read her bible.

Leah was the daughter of Abraham Johnson Gallman [CSA], (27 October 1842-29 April 1917), and Emma Susan Gault, (18 December 1850-22 January 1930). Her mother was Clarisa Kelly, (1821-1902). She was the daughter of Thomas Kelly, born in 1784 in England, died 1866 in the Kelton area of Union County. Abraham Gallman’s father, Lemuel Gallman was killed in the Civil War at the Wilderness, Virginia, according to records in Broken Fortunes. Grandmother Gregory, Leah, says he was killed at the “Blow Up”, Crater. Abraham had no brothers or sisters. Abraham was a Confederate soldier also. He was stationed near Petersburg, Virginia prior to the Blow Up. He writes on 22 Janurary 1864 from Camp near Orring Corte House, Virginia.; First SC regiment, Going Brigade. He wanted to come home but felt he would never return. Lemuel writes of trying to get a transfer to be with his son. This never occurred and Lemuel would soon lose his life. Lemuel Giles Gallman was married to Rhoda Sharp, daughter of William Sharp Jr. who taught school in the Kelton area. William Sharp Sr. was a Revoluntionary War veteran and received State Grants near Broad River. There were six land plats with two grants. Hookers and Giles were also in this area. Their last names were used by William Sharp to name his children. Rhoda lost two brothers in the Civil War, Edward Hooker Sharp, a school teacher at Bethlehem Acadamy in the Kelton area, and Charles Cass Sharp, both died in the war. A brother in law, William F. Ira Scales also served, later to move to Georgia and some descendants later are in Atlanta, Texas. Hooker seemed to be the one to keep everything. Receipts of groceries, tobacco, shoes, loans, court, fines, harness and cotton selling @ 6 1/2 cents a pound, school list of students. Letters were written from Sullivans Island, Charleston, South Carolina, Army of the Potomac, Camp Walker. His sister Rhoda kept his child, Francis, as well as his notes and letters plus those of her own from Lemuel and his notes and letters. They span almost forty years. Blood lines from Sharp, Gault, Kelly, Mabry, Hodge, and Gallman flow into the Benjamin Gregory line that mixes with Jolly-Gregory from the other side. One does not separate the lines but studies them as a whole, learning their closeness and relationship with one another.

Benjamin Franklin Gregory Sr. was a farmer all his life. He had the best watermelons in the world. On their 65 wedding anniversary their picture was in the paper in Union County. It was later to get a response in the paper from Alaska and it told how good his watermelons were. They were kept under the bed to keep cool and were a treat on Sunday afternoon.
