Henry and Marie Bohn Gregg of Lexington, Kentucky
Updated November 29, 2006
|About Our Family Research
THIS IS DEDICATED TO HENRY GREGG2 AND MARIE BOHN GREGG. There may be errors here. I am only human. I'm trying to tell the 'truth' whatever it is. HENRY was of SCOTTS-IRISH/ENGLISH heritage. MARIE was ROMANIAN & FRENCH heritage. This made up a lively family with personalities that to this day are very industrious & talented. HENRY & MARIE would not be too surprised but would be proud of accomplishments of their children & heirs. GREGG, CRAIG, HENRY, HAWKINS, DUNGAN, MULBERRY, MCDANIEL, LEMON, McKINNEY, FAULCONER, MULBERRY, TALLIFERO & JUETT are HIS ANCESTORS. Henry's father JOSEPH GREGG was born 1859 in SCOTT COUNTY, KENTUCKY. His PATERNAL G/P'S were possibly from VIRGINIA or GEORGIA. Many GREGGS MIGRATED TO & FROM SOUTHERN states around OHIO & INDIANA & TO MISSOURI. The GRANDPARENT he was named for, HENRY GREGG1 was born c.1820 in FAYETTE COUNTY, KY. & died c.1901 near there Lex, Ky. HE IS THE OLDEST *VERIFIED DECENDANT of our GREGGs. He was married 3 times. Wife #2- Martha is our family branch. It's 'rumored' his father was J. W GREGG; S/O the QUAKER- SAMUEL. His MOTHER is rumored to have been, first name M?/Marcella? Speculation of her SURNAME GIVES US JAMES, JANES, JOHNS, JONES, EVEN JOHNSON. FROM 1930's many GREGGS lived in the SCOTT COUNTY, KY area. Some fought in the REVOLUTIONARY WAR & some were kin to MATTHEW JOUET (ARTIST) & to the sea captain- Tallifero Craig. Many including POLLY CRAIG were at CRAIG'S STATION then BRYANT STATION & were among the earliest settlers in LEXINGTON, KY. from 1779- 1820's. HENRY GREGG2's NAME represents his parent's surnames- HENRY & GREGG. His father JOSEPH GREGG at one time held the title esquire & was a district judge in Wilmore, KY. Strong Christian convictions he stubbornly held onto may have contributed to his death. **MARIE'S FAMILY has surnames of BOHN, BOHNE? KEIFFER on her PATERNAL side. LALJER, LALYER, LAYER, ALTMAYER, ALTEMEIER, SPECHE, SPEICHIE NAMES on her MATERNAL side. WE HAVE TRACED BACK TO PETER LAJER & JOHN BOHN1 only. MARIE SPEICHE is supposed to be Peter's mother. Ship list name a sponsor- MARTIN BITTO. Some think Peter is part of Christope LALIER's FRENCH family. Peter & Theresia met after he left France & moved to Austria. PETER LAJER & THERESIA ALTEMEIER B c.1854 & c.1855 ARRIVED IN BALTIMORE 1903 with children- Anna E, Johanne & Peter Jr. According to ship records last residence was CSAKAD- from the port- BREMEN, GERMANY. JOHN BOHN IS RUMORED TO BE FROM THE SAME VILLAGE. JOHN & PETER LAJER JR's BIRTH PLACE IS TEMOSWAR (AUSTRIA HUNGARY)ON DEATH CERT. THE LAYERS lived in the CINCINNATI area of OHIO. JOHN BOHN2 arrived in 1904 & he & ANNA LALJER married & settled in Hamilton. Some believe he paid passage for her family. Other BOHN names we have are those of his PARENTS, JOHN BOHN1 & wife- BARBRA KEEFER. Names are all we have. ANTON BOHN & STEPHAN BOHN'S names were on ship records for same date as John's passage. JOHN BOHN worked as a shoelast/shoemaker & later a carpenter in Northern, KY. & spoke several dialics. It's recalled by family members when a young man he was politically passionate in the OLD COUNTRY. He didn't like changes in his village, where-ever it was. We heard a grandparent fled the horror of the TURKISH WAR. THE LAYERS & BOHNS are still mysteries. It's sad to not know of their lives & why they came to the USA. Through our research we learned wonderful things & also can see they endured much more than we. We recognize religious & moral beliefs we hold to were sown first in the lives of our ancestors. Much of that & some of the best- we hope was passed down to us. Indentified family photos owned by Shirley Dees & direct decendants of Bohns, Greggs & Lajers. Permission needed to use by others.

- GREGG/HENRY, BOHN, LAYER, LAJIER, LAIGER, LAGER (2 KB)
THIS TREE CONTAINS A SHORT VERSION OF MY PARENTS FAMILY. MY FATHER'S FAMILY IS MORE COMPLETE THAN MOTHER'S.
MY FATHER'S FAMILY:
HENRY GREGG2'S GREGG FAMILY STOPS AT HENRY GREGG/GRIGG1 ON HIS PATERNAL SIDE BUT HAS MANY OF HIS HENRY'S ON HIS MATERNAL SIDE OF THE FAMILY.
MY MOTHER'S FAMILY:
MARIE BOHN GREGG'S FAMILY (which hasn't been traced very far back and is still a mystery to our family):
CONTAINS THE BOHNS AND THE ONLY KIEFFERS WE KNOW OF ON HER PATERNAL SIDE.
AND THE LAYER/LALYER/LAJIER/LAIGER'S AND THE ONE ALTEMEIER NAME WE HAVE OR KNOW OF.
IT ENDS WITH THE SPEICHE FAMILY ON HER MATERNAL GRANDFATHER'S SIDE OF THE FAMILY.
MARIE SPECHE/SPEICHIE who is not shown is as far back as we have traced the LAYER FAMILY.
THE KEIFFER NAME IS AS FAR BACK AS WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GO IN THE BOHN FAMILY. RUMOR IS THAT THE THE BOHN NAME WAS AMERICANIZED AND MAY HAVE HAD AN E IN IT AND MAY HAVE BEEN SPELLED BOHNE, BOEHN OR BONNE.
The HENRY family has been traced back many generations to the Tallifero Craig and Polly Hawkins family. Family can prove ancestry of
these persons- Thanks to JO CAULA THIESSEN of The THIESSENS INDEX you will find on the related links of MY FIRST PAGE which
has ALL of our GREGG and HENRY family tree. When you go to her link you will see our complete GREGG AND HENRY FAMILY TREES which my cousin JO CAULA GREGG THIESSEN has worked on for many, many years. We are proud of her for all her hard work and no one really knows all that she has done but this cousin suspects so and is very proud of JO's accomplishments which are many. She works closely with the DAR and the Scott County, Kentucky history groups extensively and constantly. She is the webmaster for numerous
web pages and I doubt if anyone even knows how many she has and has started.

- IN MEMORY OF MY COUSIN- JO CAULA GREGG THIESSEN (109 KB)
JO WAS MY FIRST COUSIN. We will miss her much. This is Jo doing what she loved so much. The term she used about others being remembered after they passed away was- Those worthy of being remembered.
AND JO CERTAINLY IS WORTHY OF BEING REMEMBERED. Jo, with her brilliant research for Scott County added so much to our lives with the family history she found about our ancestors. The sense of pride given to us from the history she uncovered will make better persons of those now living and those yet to be born. That is what I told her in the last conversation we had just ten days before she passed away. Her words about our missing grandfather, Henry Gregg1- was that " He will turn up somewhere". She talked of her illness and said these words to me, " My faith has no holes in it and I know when Jesus died and went to Heaven that God sent him back as the great comforter in place of his Son to comfort us in times like this. She also told me she was going to buried in the Raven Creek Cemetery in Harrison Co, Ky. with all the rest of the Greggs. She loved family so much that she and her husband Jake had come all the way from California after retirement to live where her roots were.

Jack and Sallie had 12 children. Their son or nephew William who was married to Ann Faulkoner was my ancestor. One of their 2 daughters was my ancestor who mar James Henry who was my great great grandfather. Info in Woodford County, Versailles, Ky. files is said to state that William was cut out of their will and contact with family was severed by his mother because she didn't like the woman he married. All researchers may not agree with this. One of his relatives was the famous Kentucky artist Matthew Jouett. I was told by one researcher that Wm was a cousin to Matthew. The Jouett house can be seen in the summer and is open to the public. It is just a few miles outside of Versailles, Ky. in Woodford County. It is furnished the way it would have been if we turned back time. A link to see the Jouett House is on the page below.

Jim was the son of Henry and Marie Gregg and one of my four brothers. He died the same year our father did. This classic convertible car was his prized possession. Rumor was that he sold it to the Continental Inn in Lexington and it was the one in their lounges a few years back. He collected antiques as a hobby. He really loved collecting antiques. He was beaming that wonderful, rare smile of his the day I took this photo. Jim was brilliant and talented and very good to us younger girls. He did everything he could to make things more fun for us on holidays. At easter he would get baby chicks and baby ducks and special candy. He helped us so many times in life. He is the one that helped me get my driver's license and the one who took me to Frankfort for legal papers after my first husband passed away. He could paint and draw like a professional and had an eye for antiques and searching for them was one of his favorite things. He played the piano by ear but like a professional. He had impeccable taste in furniture and was very wise about many things. His favorite person in the family was our sister Brenda who ran a close second to our mother whom he loved devotedly. Brenda and her husband Tommy spent many hours with Jim and they were the best of friends. He knew he could rely on them for anything. He was devoted to family more than anything in life and never got over the death of our mother. He died too soon from diabetes and heart problems and we miss him very much. He was brilliant and died too young.

Mom told us this photo was taken on her 21st birthday. She was wearing her best dress and jewelry. Mom was so elegant when she was young. She was so pretty and loved to laugh. She was admired and loved by many. Not just for her physical beauty but for her inner beauty. She used to tell us if we can't say something nice about someone not to say anything. Because we never walked in their shoes and didn't know what they had endured in their life. She would say that we should never feel sorry for ourselves because no matter how bad things were there would be someone who had it worse and we should be thankful for what we have. She used to get letters from so many friends when I was young. She cherished them and kept them in a special box and she would read them over and over.

No one in our family recognizes anyone in this photo as it was taken before most of us were born. If it is not them it may be some of the Elam family which were my Aunt Elizabeth Elam's husband's family. Or
they could be members of the Bohn family. Probably taken in the Cincinnati, Ohio area or Kenton County, Ky area.

I enjoy working with Adobe photo shop; taking photos and doing art illustrations which are displayed to see or purchase on a christian site. Most of all in life I love God, my husband, children,
grandchildren, the rest of my large family and my dog Hidey, an Australian Blue Heeler we adopted from the Animal Shelter.
I have lived in Kentucky all my life and cannot imagine nor have ever even thought about living elsewhere. Be sure & visit the link to my handsome husband- Leroy Dees' site which is listed on the page. My graphics & photos can be seen & purchased at CrossDaily website.

Hidey was adopted from the Animal Shelter. She is a Blue Heeler and the smartest dog I ever owned. I have taught her many tricks and she is a gentle, sweet and devoted dog. She amazes everyone with her intelligence. Most people think we should put her on the Pet Star Show after they see her do tricks. She follows me everywhere I go and won't let me out of her sight.
- DixianaFarm- 1820- Lex, Ky (87 KB)
This farm was owned by Thomas J. Carson at one time. The photo was taken in 1898 of this farmhouse on the Dixianna Farm. We would like to know what connection Henry Gregg1 had with the SIMMS FAMILY in LEX, KY OR SOMEONE ELSE WHO EITHER LIVED THERE OR WORKED THERE. RUMOR IS HENRY WAS BORN ON A FARM OUT RUSSELL CAVE & IRON WORKS IN FAY. CO, KY. just outside LEX. KY. AND IT WAS THE OLD SIMMS PLACE. HENRY was born BETWEEN 1812 and 1820. A newspaper account OF HIS OBIT in JAN. 1901 figures him as being born 1820 but some family members say he was older putting his birth perhaps before 1820? This farm was a Thoroughbred horse farm I believe since existence and is located near where Russell Cave and the Iron Works Road intersect.
I read it is believed from info I found at the Lexington library that the Harrison family may have built one of the first dwellings on it before 1840.
