about the fact there are others out there with connections.
27 September 2007. Hello- Just curious if anyone has found out
anything new on Macadam Galbraith son to Margaret Gregg (or Greig) Rae? I am a
direct descendant of Macadam through my mother. He was my g-g-grandfather.

Janet Greig b. 6th. April 1959 in Kendal and Thomas b. 24th. March 1960 in
Doncaster. My mother died in 1999 on the 14th. November. Her older sister is
Janet Jess Greig, b. 30th. April 1920 at High Pennyvenie Dalmellington still
very much with us and enormously interested in your project. Her older brother
was William b. 31st. March 1917 at High Pennyvenie Dalmellington d. 1976 whilst
working in Ae Forest. Uncle William and Aunt Janet did not have children, so I
am the last one with the Greig name perched on our branch of the tree! My Aunt
remembers talk of two other children, firstly Elisabeth b. 1st. april 1919 who
only lived a few weeks and a boy, John b. about 1921 who would have died soon
after birth, I am searching for information about this.
30 May 2006. Doreen Tuttle Hunt. Maple Valley, Washington. Thank you for posting your informative web site. I have been searching for my Gregg ancestors-- my great grandmother's parents, siblings as well as other relatives. Mary Emmaline Gregg is her name and her father is rumored to be John Gregg from North Carolina. She was born 10-1849 on the Kentucky border. She married William Young who was born in 1847 and they came west. Finally, settling in Mossyrock, Washington (Lewis County). However, so far I have not been able to find out for sure who her father and mother were and any other family members. It is also rumored that she may have had Native American ancestors. Did anyone come across these folks in their research? Thank you for considering this. If you can assist Doreen - Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
2 April 2006.
HI Alex Again I need to thank you for your website. another descendant found me thru it!!!!! I have updated our branch info. Samuel Wallace married Jean Dalziel It turns out Jean was the illegitimate daughter of Andrew Dalziel and jean Findlay Jean Findlay married James Fleming! We know know why some of thier children had the middle name of Fleming!! My work is pretty close to accurate but there may be a few mistakes, esp on Findlay Wallace! Thanks again for all you hard work and dedication Romona Powers-Perkins.

16 May 2004. Muriel & Jim Adam from
Edinburgh Sc. UK. I found your web site and am interested in your link with the Lind family.
I am researching the Lind family and their links with the Johnstone family in Penpont, Dumfriesshire.
My maiden name was Fairley and I have been researching the Fairley family tree for around 8 yrs now and am in contact with various family Fairley cousins all over the world.
April 2004. My name is Doris "Gregg"
Bryan. Your name was given to me by Tim Gregg, from Tenn. USA. I was in contact with Tim hoping to establish a family tie, but to no avail. He gave me you name in hopes I can make a connection to Ireland. My Gr. Gr. Grandfather Richard Gregg and his wife Mary (maiden name not known) emigrated to the United States sometime around 1844 to 1846. According to the 1850's US Census, they were living in Philadelphia, Pa. USA. Their oldest son Patrick was born in England in 1844, and their second son Edward was born in
Phila. in 1846, lastly they had a daughter "Jane" born in Phila. in 1849. Richard Gregg age 29 was listed as a weaver, and Mary was age 30. There was also a Patrick
Cassion, age 23, a dyer born in Ireland living with them. I have checked with the Port of New York from 1820 to 1846 and the Port of Philadelphia from 1800 to 1906 hoping to discover from where they came, without any luck. If you could point me in some direction I would be most appreciative. (Can anyone help Doris on this one?)

2000: Anne Young Ohio USA writes in with a unique query: LOOKING FOR GREGG'S FROM WALES I'm looking for GREGGS in or from WALES UK. This name is so unusual in Welsh ancestry,
that if your ancestor was a Gregg from Wales, it is almost certain that we are

January 3 2000: Justin Barlow Clement: Dear Sirs, I am descended from Andrew
Gregg, b. April 1, 1788, Clones Ireland, d. March 15, 1875. I have included
a genealogy report that is based on family bible records and what was handed
to me from my grandfather. I can document much of it, and I am fairly
certain that most of it is very accurate. The only thing I am unsure of is
Robert Gregg and Elizabeth Elliott being the parents of the above Andrew
Gregg. I received the info. through an email correspondence, but have not
been able to confirm. Does this fit into your information anywhere? I look
forward to hearing from you. Regards Justin (firstname.lastname@example.org)
1 December 1999. From Bonnie Stevens (Hawaii USA): Have read your Gregg file with interest, although do not find an immediately obvious link with my own Ayrshire GREIG family. Are you maintaining a surname file, or tracking only your own line? Our Greig line is from Kilwinning, where John GREIG married Christian CAMPBELL in Oct 1810 per the Kilwinning OPR. John was a silk weaver, and at least three of his sons followed him into the textiles trades. His eldest son, also John and from whom I am descended, worked as a stone mason but supplemented his income as a watchman in a boatyard. He "disappeared mysteriously" (as my grandmother retold her own grandmother's tale) one night between 1852 and 1855, and "his body was never found". Would be happy to share what little I know of this line if you're interested in everyone from Ayrshire with the surname. ---bonnie stevens (email@example.com)
Bonnie, thank you for your most interesting mail. I have recently upgraded my database to include ALL the Gregg and Related names throughout AYRSHIRE of which I have knowledge - from Circa 1600.(Some outside of Ayrshire also). This now stands at around
2370 records and growing.
30 September 1999. Pamela Gallardy writes: I live in Southern California, U.S.A I am trying to find out if anybody knows of an Elizabeth Gregg that lived in England. Her date of birth is uncertain , but around 1850-1860. She was of a very aristocratic family. She married Charles Harkness Bradley. They had children (the number is unknown) but one was my great-grandfather Roderick Bradley. (His brothers all died in World War I.) Roderick married Ada Lily Barnett. They had 3 children (Winnifred, Henry , Joyce). They then left England (when my Grandma, Joyce, was 4 yrs old), to South America. If anyone knows anything of Elizabeth or her descendants, please email me. Sincerely, Pamela. (firstname.lastname@example.org)

FULL FEATURE 3 October 1999: Donated by Rob Gregg USA. We have published an excellent article on the MacGregor History from Circa 800 through to 1898. This covers a good history of the MacGregors, taking into account the various clan factions, their battles, hardships, dispersal , and the proscription of the name. Under the name of Gregg, and other similar names many migrated from their homelands. We follow in particular the line and descendants of Rob Roy MacGregor from Balquihidder, who moved south to Greenock in Renfrewshire Sc., some leaving for Northern Ireland, and then on to New England, in America. The Family of Clark Chamberlain Gregg. Well worth reading. CLICK HERE
12 September 1999.Gene Gregg - Logan Ohio USA tells us:
Hi, cousin. My name is Gene Patrick Gregg from Logan Ohio USA. I am the descendant of William and James Gregg. These young men came over from Ireland.
James was born around 1798 or so and died here in 1838. He was married to a Catherine who died around 1862. James was killed on St. Patrick's Day by a group of Irishmen. He was clubbed to death because he said I am a Scot - not Irish and I am not Catholic either. James couldn't read or write. When he would say his name in his broad accent people would spell it Gragg instead of Gregg. I have many relatives in that area with Gragg but we are all from the same family of William and James Gregg or Gragg depending on which of the brothers you are descended from.
But my direct relation was William. He married Jane Everhart who would be my Grandfathers Grandmother. Jane's mother was a full-blooded Wyndott Indian Princess - her tribe was from Sanduky. They were forced to leave their lands in the 1800's when their numbers had reduced to about 600. The U.S paid about $400 for their lands which covered about one quarter of North Western Ohio, and most of the Wyndotts went up to Canada, the rest going West to Missouri.
William Gregg and Jane settled in the Ohio Valley near Bainbridge Oh., where they gave birth to Arthur Gregg, my great Grandfather. The family tree I have from a cousin tells the same story - that we are from Scotland and that we are MacGregor's. I often thought about changing my name back to MacGregor, but I think its better to leave it alone - that way my ancestors won't be confused. I hope this finds your family well.
God bless you and God bless the MacGregor clan.
Thanks Gene for your interesting story - Many persecuted Scot's emigrated via Ireland - and as Sir Walter Scott said of the MacGregors -"They were famous for their misfortunes and the indomitable courage with which they have maintained themselves as a clan." Alec.
