GREGG family of Sligo Ireland who emigrated to Canada 1800s

Journal by Laurel_Laurin

I know the area that the family came from, but no names. My grandfather was Samuel George GREGG who grew up in Southwest Ontario, Canada.He later moved to Calgary, Alberta, Canada with his wife Edith Emma PENHALL, who was related to the SIFTON family. There were two GREGG brothers who were given land because they returned army pay that they found. I think one brother was my greatgrandfather.

I just found and joined Family Tree Circles. It seems we have several family names in common.

The earliest Penhall in my file is William Penhall, b. c1852 in England. He married Eliza M. Hunt, b. c1858 in Ontario. This branch of my tree has 4 generations.

I would be interested in exchanging info if you are willing.

We are definitly related Vic These are my great-grandparents on my mother's side. I traced William Penhall back to Cornwall and think his parents were William Penhall and Caroline Stephens. I'm still working on this line. I have a family tree of the Sifton family and our great-great grandmother was a Sifton, I think Rebecca or Rachel, I'll have to find that chart again. I have opened a family tree in in Edwards (my maiden name)Send me your email and I can invite you to be a member. My email is [email protected]
This is so much fun!! I have one sister, named Sheryl and I'll let her know about you. My Aunt Stella had several children, but only one is still alive. Her name is Edith and I'll let her know too.
I'm so glad you noticed my post!!
Looking forward to hearing more.
