ROWAN ancesters

My gggrandfather, John Rowan, brought 4 sons, Richard, Thomas,David and William, to Ontario, Canada ca 1831. The information they gave with regard to where they came from was, \”Armagh/Newry.\” Was there an error, because Newry is in Co. Down? It was said they lived on Church Street, Newry. Thanks for any information.

Looking for birth mother
Posted by Shirley Roberts (Irishone54@yahoo.com) November 4, 2005, 11:56 am
My birth mother was born Mary Catherine Gregory in Chicago. She married young to Shirley Martin Yarbro \”Jiggs\” from Blythville, Arkansas and they went to Alaska. My sister and I were born in 1946 and 1947 and were eventually adopted out. If any of you kind Gregory\’s have any information or possible leads about Mary please contact me. She lived on Demming St. as a child. There is a possibility that she was raised by relatives other than her father after her mother\’s early death. I have been searching for over 45 years. Thank you and God bless. Shirley Roberts

I have been searching for Sarah or Sallie Ennis for many, many years now. She marrid Clemens Freeman, whose father is believed to be Dillard Freeman. Sarah and Clemens had a son by the name of Augustus Freeman, who was shot on June 2, 1864 and died June 4, 1864 at the Battle of Cold Harbor. He had married a woman by the name of Annie Landries, Landers, Landis????, who evidentally died in a mental hospital in Marion Wythe County VA. She had at least one daughter, Mary Augustus Freeman who was raised by Thomas and Lydia Ann Osborne Potter. I think they brought her into Johnson County TN where she married my great grandfather, Richard Franklin Curd. I would give my eye teeth for information concerning this family…if someone knows ANYTHING, please let me know. Thank you, Nancy

Today I found an entry in a passenger list on www.ellisisland.org that may be my grandfather\’s uncle Karl Johan Karlsson, who arrived in N.Y. 1893. It seems he was on his way to Englewood, Ill.

Ennis in County Meath Posted by: Terry Gregory (ID *****0094) Date: March 26, 2003 at 12:28:37 of 1254 My great grandmother was Anne ENNIS who married Andrew MCCULLOUGH in 1884 in the US, possibly New York or Chicago. I found an Anne ENNIS who was born 16 May 1866 in Ballybiggan, Co Meath, Ireland that may be the same person. The only info I have is that her father name was Patrick and this listing has her father’s name as Patrick and his wife’s name as Anne COMISK. I’m hoping that this may sound familiar to anyone who has (had) Ennis’ in County Meath and will share any info that may confirm or deny this connection. Thanks Terry Gregory http://www.gregoryology.com/ Re :Your request for Info on Ann Ennis Meath. There was an Ennis Family in Ballybogan Clonard Co. Meath, I noticed a Patrick Ennis Ballyboggan Clonard in the 1855 Griffiths Valuations. The Ennis House is still standing, but under new ownership. The last Ennis I remember there was a Peter Ennis in the 1980s, and I believe him to be deceased. Hope this is of value to you Regards from Co. Meath

Hello Amaerican cousins, I am one of the Dutch Gregory’s Our history goes back to Stephan Gregor born in 1510 in Dommnitzsch Germany The complete genealogy is discribed starting on page 95 in a book, titled Nederlands Patriciaat written by Centaal Bureau voor Genealogie, the Dutch Bureau for Genealogy ISBN 90-70324-30-X SISO 902.5 UDC 929.5-058.12 printed in 1985 One of my sisters moved to the States some 25 years ago but she married an American so her name is not Gregory anymore. I do not know much about other family connections in America.

I have always thought that having pictures posted in a family web-sight would be a great way to remember “the elders”. This is the first time I have seen pictures to place a face with a name on a family sight! You have created a great remembrance!!! I saw the last name of Ennis, that is what drew me to your sight. Are your Ennis’s originally from Ontario, Canada after emigrating from Ireland? If any other Ennis families from Canada visit your sight, I would like to here from them.

Greetings. Perhaps a member of the Chicagoland Gregorys can help me. I am a vintage car buff from Wisconsin. Last August, I purchased a 1966 Cadillac. In the glove box was the original warranty paperwork. The car was purchased new from Emil Denemark Cadillac in Chicago in May of 1966, by a Dr. John J. Gregory. Dr. Gregory’s address on the warranty folder is 9029 S. Western Ave., Chicago. Does anyone know of Dr. John J. Gregory? Is he still living? I’d be very interested to know about him, or talk with a relative about the history of this car. Thank you!!

I have lost track of him several years ago and all I know is that he was living with a Mr. Gregory in Chicago, IL at some point. My brother’s name is Mr. George Black.

I am a descendant of William H. Gregory–1847(Mississippi to Alabama) and Martha Moye. I believe his dad was Ruffin Gregory , but I can’t find any proof. William is my grt granpa , and my brickwall, as far as my Gregory line goes. His daughter Louella married James Monroe Roberts–(my grandparents) I can’t open the Gregopryology gedcom until I get a password, but I’m hoping these are my Gregories. Annette
