James Gregg was born in 1672. When a young man he went to Glasgow, Scotland and worked at the Taylor trade. Here he met and married Jeanette Cargill who had been born in Glasgow in 1677.
A son, James Gregg the 2nd, was born to them in Londonderry, Ireland, in 1697. Four more children, John, William, Samuel and Elizabeth were born to this union. My great grandfather, James Gregg, was born in Londonderry, New Hampshire in 1725. His Mother, whose name was Agnes Rankin, died at the age of thirty-six, but her son, my great grandfather lived to be nearly 100 years old.
When my great grandfather was 94 years, he visited at my Mother's home in Oneida, New York, but as she was only a child, she could not remember how much longer he lived. It was during this visit that he gave these facts to my grandfather,
Jonathan Gregg, his son. My grandfather served in the War of Independence, and the Wars of the Colonies. When he died he was buried in the Methodist cemetery at Manchester, Calumet Co., Wisconsin. This took place on the first of May, 1853, his wife, Sylvia Louis Gregg died that same spring. My Mother Sylvia Caroline S. (Gregg) Gilbert was buried on the home place at Belle Creek by her husband Lyman Gilbert.
I, Sarah Elizabeth Clementime Gilbert, was born April 14, 1840. - In April, 1873, in East Troy, New York. Micheal Doyle, my future husband, was born. Micheal Doyle's father was born in Ross, Wexford Co., Ireland. Micheal and Sarah Doyle spent the major part of their married life on the home place in Belle Creek Township, Goodhue Co., Minnesota. Micheal was a Civil War Veteran and served several terms in the Minnesota Legislature. Sarah was a midwife during the early days.

AND her'e another version!
From New Hampshire Genealogy Volume 1, 1910. Generational Family History Book (Barbara Pierce)
Captain James Gregg was one of the first sixteen settlers in Londonderry, New Hampshire. He was 20 years old when his parents moved to Northern Ireland. The family settled in the County of Antrim and in the parish of Mulasky. Young Gregg had been apprenticed at the age of fourteen years to learn the tailor's trade, and had just completed his engagement when he removed to Ireland.
There he immediatley commenced business and was very actively employed. At the time most of the best apparel worn by ladies were made by tailors. One day Miss Janette Cargill came to his shop and ordered her wedding dress. In speaking of this incident, the Nashua Gazette of more than fifty years ago says:
"When she came into the shop he reconized her as a person he had seen, but had no particular acquaintance with her; He saw at once that she was a very beautiful and interesting person, and had a most captivating smile on her countenance, and at the same time discovered that there was a shade of melancholy which plainly told that some unseen affliction was preying upon her mind. After taking her measure and recieving her instructions, she very politely bade him adieu, and turned to go out the door when he spoke to her in a tremulous tone of voice, and said, 'My dear friend, I am almost tempted to envy Mr. Lindsey his happiness.'
This unexpected salutation came upon her like a shock of electricity, and suddenly an effusion of tears burst from her eyes, while the tumult in her bosom choked her utterance, and she was silent a few moments until her emotion had somewhat subsided. At length she mustered fortitude enough to reply, and said 'My dear friend, if I could have my wishes realized, Mr. Lindsey would be the enviuos man, and you would be the person envied.' This modest reply was too plain to be misunderstood, and it broke the ice at once and opened the way for a full explanation.
Then they conversed freely on the subject, when she told him her story very candidly, and said to him ' I am now published to Mr. Lindsey, an old gentleman who is said to be respectable; he is three score and ten and I am only 18. My father, Mr. Cargill, is under pecuniary embarrassment, and is indebted to Mr. Lindsey to a large amount, and he has taken advantage of this circumstance to induce me to accept his hand. My parents are intimidated, and see no way to extricate themselves from this situation but by consenting to an unhallowed connection. Consequently they had been worried with thier pressed circumstances, I have, with painful reluctance, given my consent. And now, my dear friend, if you feel willing to relieve me from my deplorable situation, with honor to yourself and me, I will cheerfully consent to any measures which you may think proper.' The result of this interview was the firm agreement to elope under cover of evening shadows, and have the marriage performed by a curate in a neighboring parish, which was done to thier mutual joy and satisfaction.
Mr. Gregg and his young wife settled in the parish of Mausky, where he pursued his business to good advantage; went extensively into the business of bleaching linen cloth, and in the course of a few years accumulated a handsome property. In the year 1718 Mr. Gregg, in company with fifteen families from the same place, embarked on board a vessel commanded by Captain Crowningshield, of Salem, bound for America.
They landed late in the season at Casco Bay, where they tarried the winter, and in the month of April came to Nutfield, now Derry, where they made a perment settlement. Captain Gregg and his wife were among those who passed the winter of 1718 and 1719 at Cape Elizabeth, where they endured much of privation and distress. As he was possessed of means, he was able and very efficient in aiding and encouraging his fellow emigrants. He subsequenntly recieved a captain's commission, and commanded the first company of soldiers raised in Londonderry...
