Milestones: trained to be in business but left to pursue art ; Said to have not a “robust constitution” (physically weak) ;

Notes: Based on family names we believe his middle initial ‘M’ is for Marion ; The family history is extremely unclear ; the artist may have been married twice, had several more children and it is unclear his father ; His father should be the doctor but often it is listed as another Frank Gregory ; There are four Francis Marion Gregorys that have similar birth dates, therefore it might be that a family’s children all named their children the same after their father or an important relative ;
