General Notes: Husband - Alexander James McGregor


He remained on the farm in Penn township, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, until fifteen years old, when he took up carpenter-work, and in 1845 embarked in building in Pittsburgh. Later he took up pattern-building and tank-making, and for five years kept a retail grocery in the city. His only unsuccessful venture was the purchase of a steam flouring-mill in Penn township, which burned down after he had operated it a year and a half, and which was uninsured. In 1865 he was associated with others in putting down an oil-well near Pit Hole, which was sold to advantage same year. Mr. McGregor became a resident of Patton in 1872, purchasing 146 acres of land, on which he had excellent buildings, and engaged in general farming. He was a republican, with prohibition sympathies.


General Notes: Wife - Margaret Anderson


She was a native of Ireland; her father brought her to America when a babe.
