    1863 · The Battle at Gettysburg

    Age 5

    The Battle of Gettysburg involved the largest number of casualties of the entire Civil war and is often described as the war's turning point. Between 46,000 and 51,000 soldiers lost their lives during the three-day Battle. To honor the fallen soldiers, President Abraham Lincoln read his historic Gettysburg Address and helped those listening by redefining the purpose of the war.

    1881 · The Assassination of James Garfield

    Garfield was shot twice by Charles J. Guitea at Railroad Station in Washington, D.C. on July 2, 1881. After eleven weeks of intensive and other care Garfield died in Elberon, New Jersey, the second of four presidents to be assassinated, following Abraham Lincoln.

    Name Meaning

    English (Kent): habitational name from a lost or unidentified place called Gregby, apparently in Lincolnshire. Although it is not certain that the surname in Kent is connected with the early bearers in Lincolnshire and Norfolk, it seems plausible. A habitational name with the Scandinavian generic -by (Old Danish ‘settlement, village’), while typical of the Danelaw, is an impossible coinage in southeastern England.

    English: perhaps a variant of Grebby from a place so called in Scremby (Lincolnshire).
