SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION

See Gregg Cemetery transcription by Mona Sarratt Knight for the Iowa GenWeb Cemeteries Project.

1860 Federal Census enumerated Joseph, Emma, Ida A., and Amanda Gregg in Kane Township, Pottawattamie County, Iowa (Page 62, Line 33).  In spite of the discrepancy for the first names of Joshua and Amy, I believe this is the correct family.  “Joseph” was a farmer.

1870 Federal Census enumerated J.H., Amy, Amanda, Georgiana, Emma, Albert, Clara and William (age 19) Gregg in Crescent Township, Pottawattamie County, Iowa (Page 151, Line 2).  J.H. was a farmer.

1880 Federal Census enumerated J.H., Amy, Amanda, Georgiana, Amy L., Clara A., Alcinda M., and Alice Gregg in Hazel Dell Township, Pottawattamie County, Iowa (ED 179, Page 15, Line 17).  J.H. was a farmer.

1891 From Biographical History of Pottawattamie County, Iowa:

J. H. GREGG, of Hazel Dell Township, is a native of Belmont County, Ohio, born Dec 19, 1831, son of H. H. and Amy (Hoge) Gregg. They were reared in Loudoun and Faquier counties, Virginia, and were of Scotch and English origin. They were married in Virginia and came to Ohio in an early day, locating in Belmont Co., where they resided until their death. The father was born February 4, 1803 and died June 30, 1861, and the mother was born October 7, 1807, and died January 7, 1874. The father was a farmer and merchant and also a buyer and packer of tobacco; his father before him was also a merchant. They were the parents of ten children, of whom eight grew to maturity, namely: Mary E., wife of Noah J. Hatcher, of Belmont Co., Ohio; Joshua H., the subject of this sketch; Samuel H., who died in Warren Co., Iowa, February 14, 1890; Hendley H., a resident of Belmont Co., on the old homestead; Francis, a resident of Belmont Co.; Henrietta, also of Belmont Co.; William S., died February 5, 1890, in Benton Co., Iowa; and Victoria, the wife of Thomas Rogers and residing in Barnesville, Belmont Co., Ohio; two children died in infancy. The father was reared in the Friends or Quaker Church.

J. H. GREGG, the subject of this ketch, was reared on a farm in Belmont Co., and received his education in the public schools. He remained at home with his parents until he was 25 years of age. October 22, 1856, he was married in Grundy Co., Illinois, to AMY G. HOGE, daughter of William and Rachel (Boles) Hoge, natives of Virginia and of Scotch and German descent. She was born in Fauquier Co., Virginia, July 24, 1830, but when a child removed with her parents to Illinois, where she was reared. After their marriage, Mr. And Mrs. Gregg started for Pottawattamie Co., Iowa, arriving November 18, 1856 at Council Bluffs. They immediately went to work to make improvements on his farm of 432 acres, which he had purchased in January previous; 400 acres are on section 33, the south half, and the south half of the northwest quarter of section, Hazel Dell Township, and the northwest quarter of the northeast quarter of section 4, Garner Township. This was all uncultivated land when he purchased it, excepting about twenty five or thirty acres which had been broken out. Here he went to work to make a home, and in the fall of 1857, he erected a small frame residence, 18 X 24 feet, and in 1878 they built an addition, and they now have a neat and commodious dwelling; the addition is 18 X 30 feet and fourteen feet front, he has also erected barns for stock and grain, a stable for his cows, which is eighty feet long, and a good hay shed ninety four feet long.

Mr. Gregg has eight acres of orchard on his home place and three acres on his farm in James Township, where he has 236 ½ acres, which he has improved. He entered from the Government 560 acres and now possesses almost 1,400 acres, all under good cultivation. He has done much toward building up and improving Pottawattamie County, and is deserving of all the honor and esteem which is accorded him by his many friends. He is a self-made man, having made the most of what he now possesses through his own efforts. In his political views, he is a staunch Republican, having wheeled into line from the old Whig party. He has been Treasurer of the school board for a number of years.

Mr. And Mrs. Gregg are the parents of ten children: Ida A., deceased; Amanda V., residing at home; Mary E., deceased; Georgia A., wife of William T. Harris of Hazel Dell Township; Amy E., wife of J. D. Harris of Norwalk Township; Anna, deceased; William A., deceased; Clara A., at home; Alcinda M., deceased; Henrietta A., also at home.
