    3. [S1017492670] Newspaper, Xenia Death notice (Reliability: 3).
      On Sept. 13th, 1881, near Xenia, Ohio, Mr. John Gregg, in the 69th year of his age.Amid the mutations of time, the changes of society and the dispersion of families, Mr. Gregg was content to live and die on the old homestead where he was born. He cherished as above price this dear heritage he had received from his father, and he clung to it while life lasted with a devotion that is worthy of emulation. Left motherless at the age of twelve and fatherless at twenty-two, he was made to bear the yoke in his youth. And he did it right manfully.In 1835 Mr Gregg was married to Miss Mary J. Brown with whom he lived happily for forty-six years. To them were given five children; all yet living to cheer and comfort their mother in her declining and lonely years.Mr. Gregg was one of the meek ones of earth, never making any demonstrations and always feeling his own weakness and unworthiness. Yet he was firm and decided in his religious convictions and a steadfast supporter of the right. He died as he had loved, in the full hope of a glorious immortality. At evening time it was light.A.T.
