When I visit old burial grounds. I generally take lots of pictures, including many of gravestones that may not be directly related to my lines. As a result I often end up with people that I can’t tie into any of my existing lines, even though the surname may be the same. Since one of my goals is to properly identify all of these folks, it sometimes presents quite a challenge. One of these challenges come from the burial ground of New Garden Friends Meeting, where I found four Gregg graves that belong to a group of siblings but I cannot place them. The stones, which are all of a very similar style, are as follows:

Margery Gregg: 1812-1895
Isaac H. Gregg : 1816-1904
George Gregg: 1821-189x
Harmon Gregg: 1826-1895

From the 1850 Census for Kennett is the entry that matches this group:

Mary Gregg 78
Isaac H 34
Samuel 31
George 29
Harmon 24
Margery 37

So, their mother was Mary, apparently a widow by 1850, with an unknown husband who died somewhere between 1826 and 1850. All of the names are common within the Gregg family but I have not been able to identify which family group they belong to. If you can identify this group, please drop me a line as I’d like to be able to place them properly.
