1823 Son James Gregson is born

Eliza Marshall Gregson (b. 1824), a millworker, and James Gregson (b. 1822), a blacksmith, were natives of England who married in Rhode Island in 1843 and almost immediately schemed to escape to the West. In 1845 they set out for Oregon, eventually joining a California party. Johann Sutter aided them, and the Gregsons lived at his fort until 1847. James Gregson enlisted in the U.S. Army under Frémont in 1846 and prospected for gold in 1848 and 1849 while his wife bore and raised their children and took in washing and sewed to support the family. In 1850, the family settled down on a ranch in Sonoma County. The Gregson memoirs (1940) prints James Gregson's brief "Statement" of the facts of his life and his wife's longer "Memory" of her experiences as a wife, mother, and businesswoman in  pioneer California.

"1851 after a rather stormey winter [with] plenty of work [there was] nothing for both myself & husband provisions high cloaths high prised & very little coming in making everything hard on us, & to make matters worse we just began to get letters from his kinsfolks in the east then we learned that Mr & Mrs Gregson were both dead & the rest of the family scattered or maried & the youngest boy John gregson was in the Orphan Asiulm. Well richard gregson wanted to come out to Callna after a time father borrowed $300 to help him & he concluded that it was not enough & he never came & we had to foot the bill "
