  • Our thanks to Steve Squier for his analysis of the 1840 census listing for the household of Richard Gregory.  another child is listed by Carolyn Cooper, but with no substantiating recor, named Miranda.  A matching Malinda Gregory also appears in a marriage record with Thomas Denson, aboth of whose names are mentoined in a probate record for one William Gregory, for whom Richard Gregory was initially the administrator, but then died, and the new adminstrator appointed was Isaa Rinehart, the husbamnd of Richard's daughter Susan.  Susan and Malinda appear to be sisters.

    There is no room, however, for Miranda or Malinda to fit with the names we know for children of Richard and Dorcas Gregory correlated with other records.  Steve Squier has done fairly extensive research into the Gregorys that seem to comprise the family of Richard, which we have also reesarched and found addiotinal records and circumstantial evidence confirming the configuration of Richard's famliy.

    Steven's analysis of the 1840 census record for Richard Gregory's household, it seems that Malinda Gregory is also his daughter.  The name Miranda may yet be another child or Richard and Dorcas Fishback who died before 1840.  No record has been found in that name.
