My great grandfather, Joseph Gregson, was illegitimate and we have always been told that his father was a Bowdoin. He was born in1842 and was raised in an orphanage in Phila. Where he was abandoned by his mother, Prudence Gregson, it appears that the Bowdoins took an interest in Joseph. My father remembers Bowdoin cousins coming down from New England for visits and there were Bowdoins invited to my parents' wedding. In the 1970's an Episcopal priest came down here to visit my aunt to discuss the past. He said he was sent by the Bowdoin family. This is the only unknown in our family history and we would so much like to know who our ancestor was. If anyone has info, please contact me at Jan.gregson@ yahoo.com.
