James Gregory was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. The following letter from the U. S. Bureau of Pensions to a W. S. Johnson, dated 11/8/1920, summarizes his part in the War.

“...in the pension claim, Rejected File No. 4292, it appears that James Gregory was born May 14, 1752, in Gloucestershire, England, emigrated to Virginia at the age of 18 years, shortly afterward settling
in Augusta Co., Va. where he resided when he entered the service in 1774; he served at various times on the frontiers, against the Indians,
as a private, under Captains Samuel Wilson, Thomas Smith and McCutcheon, and Colonel Lewis; he was in the battle at Point Pleasant, where he was wounded, and at the taking of the Cherokee Towns.

"While living at Horse Creek on the Nolichucky River, N.C., in the
fall of 1777 and 1778, he volunteered and served at various times, principally against the Indians under Captains Patterson, Thompson
and McGuire, and Colonels Sevier and Arthur and William Campbell. He was in the battles of Kings Mountain and Eutaw Springs. He was erroneously allowed pension, on his application executed August 29, 1832, while living in Greenbriar Co. Va., but upon examination of his case, he was dropped from the pension roll, March 9, 1835 on the ground that he did not render six months service as required by the Act of June 7, 1832, under which he applied. (Frontier service against the Indians not being provided for by said Act of Congress.) He married in Greenbriar Co., Virginia, September 1, 1788, to Eleanor Dyche. They had six children, no names stated other than a daughter, Sarah
Branham. He died November 30, 1838 at the age of 86. His wife died February 18, 1854, aged 81.”
