Reading this book was the best book I have ever read in my life. I had so many questions about this side of my family and this book was a great source of information. I am the great-great granddaughter of Alexander Gregory, who was the son of John and Harriet Gregory! I've always heard great stories about grandpa Alex from my grandfather but this book gives me insight to the man he was when he was younger and before he married my great great grandmother.
