James GREGG

Born 26 Jul 1827, Barr Ayrs Scotland
Died 17 Jul 1910, Scotch Valley Nemeha Kansas USA
James emigrated to Iowa USA 1852 & on to Kansas in 1857.

http://www.kancoll.org/books/cutler/nemaha/nemaha-co-p8.html
William G. Cutler's History of the State of Kansas was first published in 1883 by A. T. Andreas, Chicago, IL.
From: NEMAHA COUNTY, Part 8:
JAMES GREGG, P. O. Seneca, is a native of Ayrshire, Scotland, born July 26, 1827. On his way to America, in 1852, his wife, formerly Mary Ellis, died while crossing the gulf of Mexico. Mr. Gregg located in Lyons, Iowa; where he worked three years on farms and railroads.
In Iowa Mr. Gregg married Janet (Anderson) Baird, a native of Perthshire, Scotland. Her first husband, Alexander Anderson, died in Iowa they having come to America in 1850.
July 3, 1857, was the date of his settlement on his present farm, and while living in his log house, both wife Janet and himself suffered six months with malarial fever. His crop of 1858 was hauled to Atchison, fifty-eight miles, and sold at 2 1/4 cents per pound. Mrs. Gregg died, childless, in March 19, 1876. Upon her death Mr. Gregg gave to nephews of his deceased wife, 240 of their 1,000 acres acquired since 1857.

Nemaha Township: A report from the Seneca Courier-Democrat June 29, 1900:
Our next stop was at the fine home of Uncle James GREGG. Mr. GREGG was born in Scotland in 1827 and emigrated to America in 1857, settling on the farm where he still lives. At one time he owned over eleven hundred acres of fine Nemaha land but with advancing age he found the work of looking after it all too much for him and he has sold off until he has 438 acres left, which is, however, one of the model farms of the county. He is a great horse fancier and has no doubt done more than any other man to improve the stock of horses in this county. His favorite breed of horses is the Clydesdale and he has at various times added high priced imported Clydesdale stallions to his stud. He has at present two fine specimens of the equine family, one of his own raising and the other a two-year-old, foaled in Indiana, which promises to become the finest Clydesdale stallion ever owned in the county.

[James Gregg, son of William, died on the 17 July 1910 at his home in Scotch Valley, Nemeha County, Kansas. He died of cancer of the lower jaw. His niece Mrs. John Kelly nursed him. He "last went to Seneca the year before at Thanksgiving", according to a typewritten history of Scotch Valley. At that time he apparently made some of his funeral arrangements. (Joan Fisher 2004)]

James had no children, and left in his will 1000$ to each of James G McBride. James McBride, son of James G McBride. Gregg Jennings McBride, son of James G McBride, James Kelly, son of Alexander and Agnes Kelly. Gregg McBride, son of John and Belle McBride.

Scotch Valley Kansas USA really began with James Gregg and continued with Gregg relatives that followed him to America
