    Daniel built a fine house which was still standing in 1938, on
    a knoll opposite the Congregational Church in Wilton. British
    Forces after the battle of Ridgefield in the Revolution, passed
    this house. As they approached, the Gregory men fled to the
    woods to escape being impressed into the British Army. Esther
    hid her silverware in the well and took her children into the
    cellar; a ball fired through a cellar window grazed her
    forehead. An officer with drawn sword entered and demanded and
    received food. Daniel was a farmer. He was elected deacon of
    the Congregational Church, 7 October 1794. On the organization
    of the town of Wilton in 1802, he was on the first board of
    selectmen.
