I am the 3rd Great-grandson of James Gregor. I am from Michigan but am currently doing research in Wellington County, Ontario. I today found a transcribed edition of Benjamin Gregor's obituary. In the notes, it talks of a book or story of "A Genealogy of Badenoch Families" by Llewella MacIntyre and Marjorie Clark.

"In 1834 James Gregor and Grizel Drummond and their seven children came to Canada on the 'Alfred of Allloway' with the Beattie, Cockburn, Todd, Walker, McFarlane and Andison families, who settled in Corwhin, Puslinch. Accompanying the (sic) were James Gregor's daughter from his first marriage, Lilias and her three sons by her first marriage to John Fleming: Alexander, James and John Fleming and her second husband, James Linn. Lilias died in 1835 and James and Grizel raised her infant daughter, Lilias Linn and her three Fleming boys. In the summer of 1835, James worked on the grounds of Dundurn Castle in Hamilton and later Victoria Park in Niagara Falls. Following this, they settled on lot 33, rear concession 8, Puslinch (Badenoch area).

Children of James and Grizel Gregor were: James (b. July 6, 1820); Grace (Aug. 6, 1822-Dec. 1916) married Francis Hawkins; Benjamin (b. May 1824); Peter (Aug. 6, 1828-Apr. 28, 1908). His son, Benjamin married Elizabeth Taylor and had 5 children."

Benjamin was my Great-great Grandfather.
