Historical Note
John Munford Gregory III, born in Charles City County, VA, was the second son of Governor and Judge John Munford Gregory II and his wife Martha "Amanda" Wallace Gregory. He fought for the Confederacy in the Civil War, serving as 1st Lieutenant of Artillary and assistant to Captain William Allan on General Stonewall Jackson's staff. After the war, Gregory relocated to Suisun, CA. Soon thereafter, in the late 1860's, he married Evelyn "Eva" Tingey Craven, daughter of Admiral Thomas Tingey Craven and his second wife, Emily Truxton. Together they had four sons: John Munford IV, Thomas Tingey Craven, Truxton, and Alfred Gregory. He became active in local politics, serving as District Attorney and later Judge in Suisun. His birth and death dates are unknown, though it is very likely that he was born in the 1840's and was still living at the turn of the century.
