I have a relative, Joseph Madison Gregory, who was born in 1876, and his granddaughter thinks he was born around Jackson. Evidently his parents died and he came to live with other relatives in Union County, Ms before going on to ARK then on to CA where he died in 1970. His father could have been Andrew, Robert, Charles, Edward(b. 186l) Silvester or Sylvester or a combination of these names. These Gregorys have appeared in the Pontotoc/Tippah/Lee census records but I have not found any marriage records or children for them.
There is a possibility that they moved on to the Jackson area. Thanks for any help.
