|Bio and Links|
I was born and raised in Vigo County, Indiana, and joined the Air Force at an early age. After two careers (USAF and U.S. Capitol Police), two marriages (death and divorce) and wonderful children AND grandchildren, I completely retired and relocated to North Carolina. I enjoy searching the past..., for myself and others.|
I also enjoy being a contributor to this excellent website. When visiting cemeteries for my own purposes or upon request, I will usually photograph and add several other graves from that visit. I feel that they too have a story to tell and will hopefully be found by a loved one. If my entries prove incorrect or incomplete, or you would prefer to replace with your own data, please let me know. I am always willingly to make a change for the improvement of a memorial. I will also consider reasonable requests for transfer. Please use the EDIT tab on the applicable memorial(s).
I do not display a list of Find A Grave Friends..., there are far too many. Rest assured, if you have helped me or I have helped you, then you ARE My Friend.
ADDENDUM: Photographs I have taken at burial locations may be used by others for any legitimate purpose (excluding reposting on other findagrave memorials). Hopefully, I would be given credit for the work. However, personal photographs I have placed on memorials that I created, maintain or posted otherwise, unless specified in that content, remain in my control and are considered copyrighted materials.
But I do hope that you will enjoy viewing the personal photographs I have posted, especially those of my deceased wife COLLEEN, my DAD, MOTHER and my extended family, including the Mother and Father of my second wife.

|Dorothy M. Lewis||RE: Joseph Gregor|
Although I'm not related to this family, their daughter Emily Jessep lived just across the road from our family in Cedar Ridge, and we attended the same church (Grass Valley United Methodist Church). I have such wonderful childhood memories of this dear sweet woman.
I found the family's memorials while researching a number of Cornish mining families that we knew in Grass Valley, and it seemed only right that Selina, Joseph & their children should be linked. I can't thank you enough for making this possible, and for including their story.

P.S. - Regarding James & Annie G. Richards who share the headstone with Joseph:
Annie P. Gregor, wife of James Richards, was the daughter of Joseph's brother John.

Here's a bit more info about Joseph:
Full Name: Joseph Tippett Gregor (not Gregory)
Born: 09 April 1855 in St Minver, Cornwall, England, son of John & Mary Ann (Tippet) Gregor.
Died: 05 September 1918 in Grass Valley, Nevada County, California
Married: 30 October 1882 in Central City, Gilpin County, Colorado to Selina Davy (Memorial# 22080714), daughter of William & Mary Ann (Grigg) Davy. Born in Egloskerry, Cornwall, England 26 February 1861, Selina died in childbirth 27 June 1891 in Granite, Granite County (then in Deer Lodge County), Montana. Her baby daughter survived just 5 months and 9 days.
Joseph & Selina had four children: William Davy Gregor (1883-1931); John Gregor (1885-1946) Memorial# 83065721; Emily (Gregor) Davis Jessep (1888-1969) Memorial# 73982443; and Florence A. Davy Gregor (1891-1891).
Joseph arrived at the Port of New York on 25 May 1880. He worked as a miner in New Jersey, Colorado, Montana, and Grass Valley, California.
It would be greatly appreciated if you might link the members of this family.

|JOANNE IWINSKI-MILLER||RE: re: Hooks Photograph|
Hi, this is the information I received from Mr G Born. I hope this helps.
So good to hear from you. Hope all is going well.
As I recall Mr. Hooks tintype came from material I received from the Bridgman family. Bingo I went to the
Sequicentenniakl history of Morocco published by the NCHS and find that Joseph Hooks in the tintype is a brother of Olive Jane Hooks who married Alonzo Bridgeman. A lengthly article appears on p.231-232 of that publication. Don't have access to a copying machine, as it is too cold and treacherous to go outside now. I hope this helps.
Hang in there,
|Glenda Barry||RE: re: Elizabeth Hooks|
You are always welcome, let me know any time I can help with transfers. Take care and stay safe and warm!
|JOANNE IWINSKI-MILLER||RE: re: Joseph Hooks Photograph|
Thank you for your interest. I have 3 Facebook history pages in Indiana. Gerald post photos years ago on the pages. Gerald Born is the upmost Newton County Historian and expert on local history. I believe he is in his mid 80s now and no longer answers emails or is on FB but I will email him for you to see if he will respond. I will get back to you as soon as I find out something. He is from the Morocco area and his roots go deep there so if he said it is Hooks, I would be 99.9% sure it is him.
I will get back to you soon (hopefully) I understand he has not been well.
|Glenda Barry||RE: re: Sarah Oxford Hooks|
You are very welcome, I'm always happy to transfer to family or friends. Let me know any time that I can help you. Take care and have a good weekend!
