Gregory Point on the US Geographical Survey map, 20th century - click on image for larger view
Gregory Point USGS Norwalk South Quad, Connecticut, Topographic Map. Gregory Point is a Cape in the state of Connecticut (county of Fairfield), located at latitude - longitude coordinates (also known as lat-long or GPS coordinates) of N 41.08704 and W -73.40151. Gregory Point is shown in the center of the topographic (topo) map, which is sourced from the United States Geographical Survey map USGS Norwalk South quad. The nearest major town is East Norwalk, CT.

Note: Genealogist William Perry Hay (1871-1947 - descendant of Elizabeth Gregory Howsmon) researched (92,93,94,95,96) the locale of Gregory Point in the 1930s and 1940, to determine whether it was in NY or CT. He concluded there is only one Gregory Point, and it is in CT not NY -- located at the east side of the mouth of Norwalk River in Fairfield County, CT. A very short distance up this river are the towns of South Norwalk on the west side and East Norwalk on the east side of the river; two or three miles above is the town of Norwalk. Note that Bedford,NY is about 20 miles from Norwalk.

The 1920 census is definitely his; the 1900 and 1910 are only a possiblity -- right age (7/1848) and widowed, but first name is "Joseph" not Jehiel -- perhaps an inscription error or perhaps someone else.

----------1b. Rena Loofbourrow (5/31/1850 OH-7/19/1852 Fayette,OH) -- died young (cholera)
The Loofbourrows are buried in the Bostwick-Loofbourrow Cemetery, which at the time was known as the "cholera cemetery" -- other families besides the Loofbourrows and the Bostwicks were decimated by the cholera epidemic.

2. Nehemiah Gregory Jr. (to distinguish from uncle)(3/31/1784 NY-2/21/1817 Fayette,OH) married Patience Brown (10/23/1790 Washington,NY-1/26/1882 Seneca,OH) on 12/31/1807 (Patience then remarried (1) Joseph Scott and had daughter Joanna b~1820 and (2) Cook DeVol and had daughter Martha Jane ~1832) -- 2 children (census: 1840, 1850, 1860?, 1870, 1880)
-----2a. Maria Gregory (1808 OH-8/28/1899 OH) married (1) Milton McNeal (1796 NY-1840s? OH) in 1824 and (2) Able Rawson (~1798 MA-1870s OH) in 1850s -- 3 children (census: 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880)

---------------2c. Lucy Maria McNeal (8/1861 Richfield,OH-) married Don Reznor Gibson (2/1852 OH-)
---------------2c. child McNeal -- died young
-----2a. Jehiel Gregory (~1813-?) -- unknown (in the "Ancestors and Descendants of Henry Gregory" book -- "a very bright young man, studied medicine and disappeared entirely.") There is a marriage record for Jehiel Gregory and Ann S. Wright on 11/6/1849 in Van Buren County,IA (in 1850 Nehemiah's brother Adley (#6 below) lived in Van Buren County,IA; the only other Gregory in Van Buren) which is a possible match -- there is a Jehiel Gregory, merchant, born ~1810 in VT with an Isabella, born ~1830, on the 1850 census in Van Buren, IA and on the 1856 census... However, the VT birthplace is odd (although Nehemiah's cousins did live there in 1810), he would have to have decided against medicine, and it was Andrews, not Adley, who was guardian of Jehiel in 1832. The 1856 census states he lived in Iowa 11 years, so as of ~1845. This Ann/Isabell was widowed by 1860 with children Mary L. Gregory (b.~1851) and William L. Gregory (b.~1856); remarried by 1870 to Charles F. Devol (note she is listed as Isabell Devol in 1880; so Ann on marriage record, 1860 and 1870 census, but Isabella in 1850 and 1880 and A. S. in 1856). Note that Nehemiah's widow, Patience Brown Gregory, married a Devol.

--------------------
The bulk of the information is from the "Ancestors and descendants of Henry Gregory" book, which was meticulously researched and documented -- the information was copied and displayed above. Note: the above section for Jehiel Jr's daughter Elizabeth Gregory Howsmon was provided by her grandson William Perry Hay to Grant Gregory. All of the information has been supplemented by information found on Rootsweb,com, and may not be as well-researched and documented. I added in information where obvious from census data. Note: many genealogists have Jehiel Gregory Sr. with a middle name of Grant; there is not verification of this, and this middle name is omitted in all my compilations.

** I have made significant additions to the tree for Elizabeth Gregory and Jared Strong. The "Ancestors and Descendants" book has two children only: Jared and Elizabeth, and for Jared there is no information. William Perry Hay's page on Elizabeth Gregory and Jared Strong has only one child: Elizabeth (both works were compiled contemporaneously, in the 1930s, based on personal correspondence, published biographies, and original documents such as court records).
• Jared Strong died in Jackson,OH in 1828 and Elizabeth Gregory Strong in Jackson,OH in 1840.
• I think there was at least one more child, besides Jared:
----- I have not verified the record, but there were supposedly court documentation for guardianship of the minor children upon Jared Sr's death: "STRONG Jared, d. 1 Jan. 1829, Jackson, Jackson Co., OH. Guardian papers for Jared STRONG's three children: Jared G.; Stephen and Elizabeth Strong. Alexander Miller was appointed Guardian at the Sept. Term of Court, of Common Pleas, 1831. Jared d. intestate and his brother, John, and wife, Elizabeth were appointed administrators." -- 12/11/2000 SUBMITTER: Patricia M. Fulton. (Note: this is surviving children, obviously, and there could have been other children who did not survive past 1829; the surviving children were aged 9-14 at the time of their father's death.)
• The descendants were based on census data and marriage records:
-----census: 1820-only Jared Strong in Lick (19 people in home); 1830-no Strong in Jackson; 1840-only Jerrard G. Strong in Liberty (5 in home); 1850-no Strong in Jackson. Since individual enumeration was not performed until 1850, it is virtually impossible to place people in the homes, but it is significant that there are not other Strong families in Jackson in the 1820s-1840s.
-----Jackson county, OH marriages 1818-1865 -- four Strong marriages:
1. February 2, 1834 - Jared G. Strong marries marries Jane E. Leuacy
2. March 10, 1836 - Stephen Strong marries Emily Pickeral
3. April 13, 1837 - Elizabeth G. Strong marries John H. Davis
4. November 15, 1846 Thomas Strong marries Ann Chensworth
The 1837 record is known to be for daughter Elizabeth who marries John Hayes/Hays Davis, documented in the "Ancestors and Descendants" book, and in William Perry Hay's book. It seems likely that the Jared and Stephen records are for her siblings -- the only Strong marriages in Jackson county in the 1830s. Thomas Strong is unknown, but probably a cousin from another county who married a woman from Jackson county; they cannot be definitively identified on the 1850 census, but there is no census record in Jackson.
• Although William Perry Hay did not mention a son Jared (or Stephen or Jehiel; the only child he listed was Elizabeth in his book), he mentions that Charles A. Gregory (Jehiel Gregory-Andrews Gregory-Adley Nehemiah Gregory-Charles Gregory) stated that Jared Strong was a farmer who lived near Decatur,IL. William Perry Hay assumed this referred to Jared Sr, "in his later years," but it in fact it refers to Jared Jr who moved there in the late 1840s (1850 census). This is a confirmation that Jackson,OH Jared Strong is the Decatur,IL Jared Strong. It is noteworthy that the only mention is IL which is the first place Jared moved, after which time the cousins obviously lost touch after Jared's sister died in 1847.
• It is noteworthy that Jared and Stephen continue to move to the same locales -- 1850 both in IL (both in Knox county, township 11 No 3 E - 1850-Jared and 1850-Stephen); 1860-1870 Jared in KS - Stephen in IA; 1880 both in Los Angeles, and in the same community in LA (1880-Jared and 1880-Stephen). This is more than coincidental, and strongly suggests that Jared and Stephen are brothers. And their move away from OH underscores why the descendants of Elizabeth Strong Davis did not recall them. Note that Elizabeth moved to Ross,OH upon her marriage in 1837, where she died in 1847.
• Note that Stephen was the first to move to IL, by 1841 (maybe earlier since he cannot be found on the 1840 census in OH or IL) based on his son John Davis Strong's birth (named after his sister's husband, most likely); Jared did not move to IL until 1846-1849 based on Emily and Samantha's births. Note that both Jared and Stephen named sons born in 1841 John D/Davis Strong. Stephen being the first to move might explain why he was less-remembered.
• Jehiel was added based on another genealogist's listing online; it is unknown on what documentary evidence this was based, however, it is felt there was likely to be a son named Jehiel after Elizabeth Gregory's father who died so young. This presumed child clearly did not survive childhood, being deceased prior to his father's death in 1827; there could well have been other children who died as infants/toddlers.

Some more specific information on Elizabeth Gregory and Jared Strong, and their son Jared:
• From "A History of Jackson County, Ohio" p.179-180: "The second period began in 1816 and lasted four years. The two new counties, Pike and Jackson were erected into a Legislative District until the census of 1820 was taken. At the first election there were only two candidates voted for in Jackson County, viz, Jared Strong and George L. Crookham. Strong carried the county by a vote of 171 to 89 for Crookham, and carried Pike County, also, and was elected. Crookham was the grandfather of the McKitterick brothers of Jackson and was a man of great ability. Strong's wider acquaintance secured him the election, however. He was re-elected in 1817 with hardly any opposition. In 1818, William Givens, of Jackson, was elected. Strong was not a candidate and his only opponent was William Collins who received a light vote. Judge Givens served only one year, and was succeeded by Strong, who was elected for a third term, and by an overwhelming vote. The third period began in 1820, and extended to 1828. During this period the counties of Meigs, Callia and Jacksson formed one Legistlative District and were entitled to two Representatives. Thre were six candidates at the election in 1820. Robert G. Hanna received almost the entire vote of his county and was elected. His associate was George House. House and David Boggs, of Gallia, were elected for the district in 1821. Jackson County was left out in the cold, but in 1822, evened up by electing two of its sons, Jared Strong and Joseph W. Ross. This occurred on account of the multiplicity of candidates in the other two counties. Strong was elected for the fifth time in 1823, his associate being Fuller Elliott. Jared Strong, the first Jackson County man elected to the Ohio House, had a service record which has never been broken, in number of terms or years. He was elected five times and served five years, the term being one year, under the old Constitution from 1803 to 1851. ... Some claim that this Strong was the son of Hon. Jared Strong, while others assert he was a Meigs County man."
And from "A standard history of the Hanging Rock iron retion of Ohio, vol 1" -- p.434 -- "Representatitves from Jackson County. Jared Strong was the first real representative of Jackson County in the Ohio Legislature, which was in a district with Pike until 1820. Strong was re-elected in 1817, but William Given got the place in 1818. Then Strong was given his third term. In 1820 Jackson was placed in a district with Gallia and Meigs and the district had two representatives; Robert G. Hann was elected from Jackson and George Hosue from Meigs. In 1821 House and David Boggs of Gallia won out, but in 1822 Jackson evened up by electing J. W. Ross and Jared Strong, two of its own citizens, giving the latter his fourth term. He had many relatives in Gallia and Meigs. Strong rreceived his fifth term in 1823, with Fuller Elliott. In 1824 Jackson elected two of its sons, J. W. Ross and David Mitchell, and Ross was given his third term in 1825 with Samuel Holcomb of Gallia. In 1826 Jackson again won the two representatives, Daniel Hoffman and Stephen Strong, son of Jared Strong, whose name was one to conjure with in a district including so many relatives." (Clearly Jared's on Stephen was too young to be elected in 1826; not sure of what mistake this is, although there is an older Stephen Strong from Meigs.)
• THE BUNN GRAVEYARD - This old burial ground occupies the greater part of outlot 26, and a part of outlot 27 in the south half of the original town of Jackson -- "Sacred to the memory of Jared Strong, who departed this life December 20, 1827, aged 43 years, 7 months, 10 days." "Strong was the first representative of this county, and held many other positions of trust. " -- from the "History of Jackson County, Ohio, by D. W. Williams - vol 1."
• *** "I remember a water mill on Salt Creek. It was owned by a Mr. Strong. His widow married John Burnside and he and her son Jared Strong run the mill together for a while." -- Jackson Standard Newspaper, Jackson, Ohio, Wed., August 3, 1892; interview with Hiram Oliver (born 1829). (Note: two John Burnsides in Jackson,OH in 1840: one in Lick (age 50-60) and one in Franklin (age 20-30);. Elizabeth Gregory Strong was 53 in 1840 so surely would have been married to the John Burnsides in Lick township. Elizabeth is not enumerated on the 1840 census, as she died January 10th, and it was likely taken after that time. It is curious that no marriage record can be located. Since no enumeration can be found for any Strong in Jackson county in 1830, this supports the mention of her marriage to John Burnsides, and suggests they were married prior to the 1830 census, and Elizabeth and her children are enumerated in John's home.
