    Carolyn Cooper's genealogy reports a son of George Washington Gregory also named George.  He is matched by an 1840 census for a George Gregory in Jefferson County, next door to a single George W Gregory and on the other side a Few H Gregory.

    Carolyn also reports a Few Hall Gregory as a sibling of George and son of George Washington Gregory, who was reported in the 1850 census in Jefferson County with his wife Martha.  Another Few H Hall appears to be a nephew of this Few Hall Gregory, and a son of Richard.  Richard's son Few, named Few Hugh in some genealogies, is found in Arkansas in the 1850 census.

    Three members of the Gregory family appeared in the 1840 census, as well as members of other families related in various ways to the Gregorys on the same page.  This George appears to be the one listed here as George Gregory, and the younger George W Gregory is the son of Richard and brother of Few.

    Steve Squier reports George's father was also named George, but has not confirmed his mother's identity.  My research correlates this George's father with George Washington Gregory, as reported by Carolyn Cooper, and his mother with George Washington Gregory's second wife Susannah Few.  It also seems to fit that George Washington Gregory is Richard Gregory's father, but Steve Squier has confirmed no parents for Richard Gregory.  He has some doubts about the connection of Richard and George Washington Gregory.
    --  Steve Squier, RootsWeb,

    Note, however, that Washingtons and Gregorys are kin; George Washington's aunt married a Gregory, then together with her husband, deeded Mt Vernon plantation to the Washington family, and George, later President, inherited it.  There is a paucity of records for George Washington Gregory, and the identity of George's putative wife Susannah Few is even less documented.

    The records available seem to indicate that George is the son of George Washington Gregory and the brother of Richard Gregory.  There are other siblings to be confirmed as research continues.  The tax rolls and related census records seem, at any rate, to indicate all these Gregorys of Jefferson County and Cherokee County, Alabama, are closely related in the same lineage.

    There was a legal case involving George's estate, attempting to recover a surety bond he had paid to a Baltimore legal firm in an earlier case.


    William Evans and Hamilton Copeland admrs. V. Joseph Hamilton et al
    Jefferson County, Tennessee

    Plaintiffs sued defendant to recover $1769.50, paid by deceased George Gregory to defendant as surety in a case against Sewell and Arnest of Baltimore, Maryland.  Gregory died at his home in Jefferson Co., October 1847.
