(VI) John Gregory, fourth child of George
Washington Gregory (5), was born in Winchendon,
Massachusetts, October 13. 1850. He attended the
public and high schools there and Bryant & Strat-
um's Business College in Boston. At the age of
twenty-one he began work for James Sawyer, who
made frames for chair cane seats, carting chairs
and chair stock to others to weave. It was the
custom at the time to weave seats for chairs, as
shoes and hats were made, on the farms of the
mechanics. The invention of machinery and uni-
versal use of power has changed the methods of
work. In the spring of 1874. after working on the
farm for two years, Mr. Gregory went to Elgin,
Illinois, where he worked for a year on a dairy farm.
