I have photos of Mary Elizabeth Osborn and John Gregory abt the time of their marriage in Southport, CT. He has a scar on his chin from sliding down the hill there. It is probably flattened by now.

I know my ancestry goes back to Judah or John or Elizabeth Gregory in the 1630s. Please help me if you can to learn about the Potter, Pickman Osborn, Crocker lines. There may have ties to a Stephen Townsend Gregory who . Eliza Fowler, b. 1802 in Hartford. Hope you can

Perhaps someone can help me get this family put together.

Any information would be greatly appreciated!
