Assemblyman Gregory (1885)

Assemblyman U.S. Gregory

President Grant

During some research today, we stumbled onto the biography of Assemblyman U.S. Gregory. The information we were able to dig up was pretty limited, but the most interesting bit of information was what the “U.S.” stood for. Unlike most other people with those initials whose names are Ulysses (like President Grant and the California Attorney General who was named after the President… I think), Gregory’s initials stood for Uriah Sandifer. Wow; you don’t see names like that anymore.
