John Gregory – 8th Great-Grandfather

This is one of a series of posts/images honoring my ancestors. Some, I know a lot about. Some, I know almost nothing. If you see this and recognize the name as being one of yours, please let me know!

There is scant information on John Gregory, my eighth great-grandfather. This is what I know (or think I know):

John was born in 1623 in Stockwith, Lincolnshire, England and died in 1676 in Rappahannock County, VA. He was married to Mary Elizabeth Bishop. Their children include:

Mary
Elizabeth
John
Richard
Roger
Jonathan
Robert

Ancestry.com does have several hints for this John Gregory but I haven’t had time to check them yet.  There is also a probate file in Spotsylvania County, Virginia, for a Richard Gregory whom I believe is my 6th great-grandfather, but again, I can’t prove it today.

I did find some Spotsylvania County record books on Amazon; they’re a bit pricey but I’m considering!
