Notes for Rev. James Henry Gregory
Also called John Henry. The name is seen both ways, with James for earlier records and John for some later ones. For example, it is James in the 1850 census, James H. in the 1860 census, and James Henry Gregory on the marriage record of his daughter Lizzie to Harvey Alfrey, but John Henry Gregory on his gravestone and death certificate. When he signed marriage registers as the officiating clergy, he signed as Rev. J. H. Gregory. Some other records, e.g., the marriage record of his son Matt, just say Henry. It appears that as an adult he went by either Henry or J. H., and by the time of his death, his surviving children had forgotten what the J stood for.
Notes for Sarah Ann ("Sally") Caudill
Sarah's dates of birth and death are from her gravestone.
