    Andrew Jackson Gregg was born in Allegheny County, New York in 1832. He came to California in 1852 and returned to New York in 1858. He married Louise Carpenter, fought in the Civil War, and subsequently returned to California, where he lived in Oakland. He published "The State Prohibitionist," the first such paper in California, and was an active advocate of the single tax theory of Henry George. He was a member of the Carpenter's Union. In 1894 he ran for lieutenant-governor on the Populist (People's Party) ticket. He was the author of many articles and speeches on the subjects of his interests and beliefs. He died in Oakland on February 19, 1917.
