PATRICK GREGORY (1832-aft.1900)
Patrick GREGORY was born August 1832, presumably in Virginia. He married 19
December 1851 Harriett D. HARRISON, daughter of William HARRISON, of
Rockbridge County. By 1881, GREGORY was located in Campbell County, in a section
near Lynchburg known as Clover Valley. He operated a dairy, known as GREGORY and
Company, with his sons, James and William S. GREGORY. Nothing further is known at
present.

Household 433, Family 439; Louise M. Perkins, Rockbridge County Marriages 1851-1885 (Signal
Mountain, TN: Mountain Press, 1989), p. 148; Lynchburg City Directory, 1881-82 (Lynchburg: J. P. Bell,
1881), pp. 81-82; City Directory of Lynchburg, Virginia (Lynchburg: J. P. Bell, 1879), pp. 93-94;
Lynchburg City Directory for 1885-86 (Lynchburg: J. P. Bell, 1885), p. 87; Lynchburg Hustings Court,
Chancery and Law Order Book, Aldermen, January 1858-September 1860. In 1879 Frederick GREGORY
and John A. GREGORY are listed as dairymen residing in the county (Campbell) near the city limits.
There is no mention of Patrick GREGORY. In the directory of 1881-1882, James, Patrick, and William S.
GREGORY are listed as dairymen with GREGORY and Company, at Clover Valley. In 1885, James and
P. GREGORY are listed with GREGORY and Company, with dairy located at Clover Valley. There is no
further mention of GREGORY or the company in the city directories. An examination of local maps
(1891, 1922) reveals the location of Clover Valley as adjoining Orchard Street and extending behind the
Craddock-Terry Shoe Company plant off Craddock Street and Park Avenue. The area was annexed to the
City of Lynchburg in 1908. On 3 May 1859, one Patrick GREGORY presented a certificate in the
Lynchburg Hustings Court, from the County Court, Rockbridge County, dated 31 March 1856. In the
certificate, he stated that he was born in County Kerry, Ireland, ca. 1832, and migrated to the United
States, landing at New York, in November 1848. He was admitted as a citizen of the United States. It is
not known if this is the Patrick GREGORY of Clover Valley.]
