Notes


"Will recorded 18 Oct 1830 in Mecklenburg Co., VA, noted on land tax records as late as 1824, son Atha remained in Virginia as did daughter until much later, so not sure about date and place of death -- confused with another Ambrose Gregory? Earlier of two possible birthdates is consistent with dates for Ambrose's father and brother Joseph."
