    Yes, The Greggs helped move Clans there to Antrim, That is why he was awarded the cane from the King. That cane came to America with John Gregg son of William Gregg MacGregor II to New Castle Delaware, Quakers and the Greggs were Presbyterian, but they were also good friends of William Penn! The Gregors were rich Merchants/Barons! I think the MacDonells and Gregors were good friends! I remember reading something else on that somewhere. hmm YDNA test yet They all should check each others YDNA? lol
