- Colonel Patrick McGregorie came to this country with a number of followers in 1684 - first landing in Maryland and then proceeding north to Perth Amboy, in New Jersey. At the suggestion of Governor Dongan in 1685, he removed to Plum Point, just above the Hudson Highlands, where he built a log house and engaged in the Indian trade. In that business he became master of the Indian language. In 1686, he was appointed Muster-Master General of the militia of the Province of New York, and was soon sent to command a party to trade at Michillirnakinac. They were caught on their way and carried prisoners to Montreal. By an order from the French government McGregorie was released in 1687, and returned to New York. After that Governor Sir Edmund Andrus employed him in the command of a company against the Indians East of Pemaquid. In the tumult in New York, March 1691, between the government and the Leisler parties McGregorie was killed, and was buried with publick honors. He failed to obtain patents for the land he occupied above the Highlands which were granted to Captain Evans by Governor Fletcher. His family, after much tribulation,obtained the property . . .
