    US cavalryman, so it is said...

    Looks like Victor Andrew de Bier Everleigh McLaglen (10 December 1886 – 7 November 1959) , Hollywood actor.
  4. Nasty little things. Came packed in a red dye, so you could tell the entry point. Made in Evansville, Indiana.
  5. "Ulsterman wrote on Oct 16 "I have to wonder if the SAR1 notation is to a relative though-how many Saxon Gregorys can there have been" I just found a quote from another site "In 1908 Gregory had already received the Albrecht Order first class for his scientific achievements" Can this be true? And where can I find the date???
  6. yes, what I saw, 10 or so photos, were quite professional. Ah, yes, to be flush. Would have a barn full of the stuff. Ha! Anyway thanks for all of your help. I almost have CRG's genealogy. Bye the way do you know when he got his EK2 and Sax. FA medal ( BRONZE ?) dates?? Promotion times?? SB2
  7. George wrote me today and told me he sold the collection. So I can not publish the photos as I do not have the new buyers permission. Sorry. I can say one of the photo's did show Lt. Gregory with the Iron Cross 2nd and the SA3bX ribbons in his button hole. SB2
  8. Casper Rene Gregory's father, of Henry Duval Gregory, was born in 1819, Pillidelphia PA, His grandganfather, Casper Ramsay Gregorie, Born Port au Prince and his father Rene Gregorie who was French. Thanks for the reference.
  9. Thanks for your quick reply. A friend on another site told me today that Gregory is buried in the cemetery of Asfeld la Ville, Block 7 , Grave 88. Asfeld is a few kilometres southeast of Villers devant le Thour. See http://www.weltkriegsopfer.de/Kriegsopfer-René-Caspar-Gregory_Soldaten_0_13382.html. On another note the book on the first Carlist war, does it have any reference to George Augustus Frederick Ruxton?

Besides his work, he is remembered by a memorial stone with a portrait in relief in Leipzig on Naunhofer Straße in front of the new Nickolai School in the Stötteritz part of the city, as well as a small square nearby. Does any one know exactly where Professor Gregory is buried? I know his wife returned to the USA and took a job as the head of Whitman Hall at Radcliffe College in 1920.
