    Shanghied with brother as small boy in 1680 (He would have been about
    8 years old). His brother was ten. It seems they were playing in the
    street when a man gave them a letter requesting them to give it to the
    Captain of a ship about to leave for America, assuring them that the
    Captain would reward them for their sevice. The Captain sailed with
    them on board. This story can be found in the "History of Princeton, MA."
    No more is known of the older brother and very little of Daniel. When
    grown, he purchased a tract of land and built a house in what was then
    known as Watertown Farms and which was incorporated as a town Jan
    1/12, 1712.

    Motto of the MacGregors is "S RIOGAL MO DHREAM" or "My Line Is Royal"
    Crest Badge: A lions head, erased, crowned with an antique crown,

    Gaelic name---MacGrioghair

    The home of the clan was in the Eastern border of Argyll and the
    Western border of Perthshire, including Glenorchy, Glenstrae, Glenlyon
    and Glengyle.

    Robin Hood, Robert MacGregor-Rob Roy (Gaelic, "Red Robert"). He was
    born in 1671. Our Daniel was of the same clan and was born one year

    The first Gregory was the third son of Alpin, King of the Scots. Also an

    Partial letter "Patricia A. Knight" <>

    Daniel MacGregor. From there I have Donald Gha as the father of Daniel. "
