  • Notes 
    • Harry Charles Gregory is my grandfather. My grandmother (his wife) told me that when she was a young adult she traveled from Ohio, where she was born, to California for a summer of visiting her cousin in Bakersfield and site seeing around the state by train. She went to Yosemite, San Francisco, Sequoia National Park, San Diego, and many other places. Her cousin had a boyfriend who worked in the oil fields in Taft. She showed my grandmother a picture of her boyfriend that was taken in an oil field with some of his friends. My grandmother became smitten with one of the other guys in the photo and wanted to meet him. They met and it was love at first sight, they were both smitten. Before the end of the summer, they had already decided they were going to get married. But my grandmother had promised her aunt, who was rising her, that she would return to Ohio and finish her last year at college. My grandmother honored her promise and returned to school. She graduated the next year from (Case) Western Reserve with a degree in biology. As soon as graduation was over, she was back on the train for California, and she and my grandfather got married. I have seen a picture of my grandmotherís father, Harry M. Bentley, who was a cavalry officer and fought in the Spanish-American War. During the war, he contracted malaria, which he died from at a fairly young age. His wife died a year or two later, so my grandmother, her sister and brother were raised by their aunt and uncle, a very well-to-do family in Cleveland, OH. Her father was a very handsome man in uniform sitting on a beautiful horse. [1]
