Notes for Samuel GREGG

Lived within sight of the battlefield of Brandywine Day 1777 and could plainly hear the roar of the artillery; visited his brother John Gregg in Green County, Pa.
Had two slaves left, a mother and a son, whom he had freed before his death; the mother married again and the son stayed on with Samuel's son until he was 68. Samuel Gregg owned fine blooded horses, fine cattle, and swine. He and his brother Jesse rated high in stock-raising, rode around on fine horses, and enjoyed fox hunting. They did little work themselves as they had plenty of help, and their farms were neat and weedless. Both brothers were fond of liquor and were fashionable drinkers, always just enough to be merry. All their land near Rock Springs was historic as the soldiers were encamped there in the War of 1812 to guard the powderworks. They were there also during the subsequent Mexican War, Spanish War, Civil War, and the World War.

Will: June 15, 1799, Will probated.
