I am looking for information on John Francis Gregson, his wife and his parents. According to my mother, he was born in Liverpool, England in 1866. He married Mary (Polly) Gardener (who died in 1945) and lived in Preston, Lancashire, England. He was a quartermaster in the French Navy then a dredger master at Preston docks. He died in 1931. He and Polly had 9 children: Sarah (known as Alice), Jack, Maggie (my grandmother), Nora, Stanley, Frank, Leonard, Mollie and Tom.
