Click to enlargeFarmer.

Born near Glencoe, Ontario on 23 February 1863, son of Duncan McGregor and Margaret Ferguson, he was educated in Moser Township, quitting school at the age of 15 to work on the family farm. Eight years later he came to Manitoba and bought a 160-acre parcel of unbroken prairie. He gradually added to his holdings until he had a 480-acre farm. He also bought and sold land farmland in Manitoba and British Columbia. In 1906 he became President of the controlling company of the Spring Park Nurseries.

On 23 February 1889, he married Phemie Campbell at Glencoe, Ontario. They had a daughter, Flora McGregor. The family resided at 218 Fourth Street. He was a member of the IOOF and the Presbyterian Church.
