Notes

  • Henry Gregory's family has not been located prior to his enumerationin the 1850 census.  It seems likely that Henry's father was one ofthe Gregorys that migrated from Virginia, but no certain date has beendetermined.

    The place of marriage for Henry Gregory and Rachel Lewis wasoriginally reported as Tennessee based on circumstantial informationassociating the Gregory family with Jefferson County, their Tennesseebirth and the fact that Henry and Rachel moved back there in about1869.  They were followed some time later by their son Dock Patrick.The associated Strange families are also seated in Jefferson Countysince the 1830 census.

    Rachel's maiden name was unknown until May 2013, when I foundRachael's son Andrew Jackson's death certificate.  This reported hismother's maiden name as Lewis.  This also tells us Henry's first namewas James.  Here her name is spelled Rachel.  Some records and familygenelogies spelled it Rachael.

    In 1850 through 1870, Henry and his wife Rachel are living in CherokeeCounty, Alabama.  This census reports them both born in Tennessee.

    Henry and Rachel married in Tennessee in late 1847, moved soonafterwards to Cherokee County, Alabama, where their first child Juliawas born in 1849 (age 1 in 1850 Cherokee County, Alabama, census).

    Henry and Rachel moved back to Jefferson County, Tennessee some timebetween 1860 and 1870.

    Ancestry transcribes the family name  in the 1880 Census as Gregary.This spelling is found at various times for families in New York.Actually, it is a cramped and scrawled handwriting and written with awide-nib pen, with most of the Es and Os closed.  So it could just aseasily be Gregory.

    Henry and Rachel's son Jackson is living next door to them.

    As with many of the census reports, there is some discrepancy in thebirth year of Henry:
    1850 Cherokee County, Alabama, Federal Census indicates 25 years old(thus born in 1825).
    1860 Cherokee County, Alabama, Federal Census indicates 35 years old(thus born in 1825).
    1870 Jefferson County, Tennessee, Federal Census indicates 50 yearsold (thus born in 1820).
    1880 Jefferson County, Tennessee, Federal Census indicates 60 yearsold (thus born in 1820).
    1900 Jefferson County, Tennessee, Federal Census indicates 74 yearsold (thus born in 1826).

    The entry for the nearby household of Jackson Gregary, son of Henry,is also spelled GREGARY in 1880 census, while name of his brother(Dock) Patrick and his household was spelled Gregory.

    An entry in an 1891 Voter Roll seems to be for James Henry.

    TN 1891 Voters List, Page 27

    In 1900 Henry and Rachel are in one household (Hse #162/Fam #169) withmarried son William R (Hse #162/Fam #170) and wife Darthula (reportedin the 1900 census as Thula) and 8-month old George R Gregory.

    Gregory, George R Son W M  Sept 1899  8mos  TN TN TN

    Cora did not marry until 1903, but she is not in her parents'household here, and no 1900 census record has been found for her.  Shemarried J W Oliver in Cherokee County, Alabama, where she had beenborn.

    I cannot find Henry or Rachel in the 1910 census.  I conclude fromthis that they died at some time between the 1900 and 1910 censuses.I have also been unable to find burial information.  But as far as weknow otherwise, Henry and Rachel never moved away from JeffersonCounty, Tennessee.

    In the 1920 census report for Henry's son Dock (Elmore, Oklahoma), thebirthplace of Dock's father is reported as Virginia, instead ofTennessee.
    1920 Gregory Patrick  Head  M W  67  AL VA TN Farmer
    1930 Gregory Doc G  Head  M W  78  AL VA TN Farmer

    In all the previous reports the birthplace of Dock's father has beenreported as Tennessee.  Likewise in the reports on Henry himself, thebirthplace has been reported as Tennessee.

    There are several indications that Henry's parents came from Virginia,but I have not yet been able to verify details to definitely confirmthis.  But other indications are also that Henry Gregory was born inTennessee, not Virginia.
