    In a marriage index record for Richard W Gregory and Nancy Ann Vaughan, no marriage date is reported in either instance of what appears to be the same record.

    Birth 1735 VA

    Birth Year 1732
    Spouse Nancy Vaughan
    Marriage State VA

    A similar record is found, however, in the same marriage record compilation, but the marriage is reported in Kentucky, in 1759.  It is uncertain the year in which Richard W West moved to Kentucky.  This appears to be because by Kentucky was originally a part of Virginia colony, and it was not made a separate state until 1792, after independence.  So a copy, or multiple copies, of the same record would be found in different local and state jurisdiction records.  At the date reported for this marriage, Richard would have been age 32-35.

    Richard W Gregory is reported to have died in 1817, and his wife Nancy Ann Vaughan in 1821.  Some genealogies report a second wife as Margaret Overby.  Given these other reports and death dates, Margaret must have been the first wife.  The will of Richard Gregory of Washington County, Kentucky, in 1812 (probated 1817) refers to his wife as Ann, matching Nancy Ann Vaughan, consistent with the dates of death as reported in the above tree.  Some children's names mentioned in Richard's will are not among those reported as children of Richard and Nancy, so these may be the children of Margaret Overby.
