    A memorial on Find  a Grave seems to be the correct one for John SeayGregory.  Note that this identifies him as John Seay Gregory II, andreports his death in Illinois.  There was no photo of the gravestoneincluded with the joint gravestone.  Some things are confusing orvague on the note included.  The note may be identifying his wife ashaving the maiden name White.  The "(white)" is uncertain at best.Her maiden name is reported in the name field as Patton, as expectedfrom other sources.  The note also seems to say the date on hisgravestone is actually unreadable, but does not say where the datereported comes from.
