Name of creator
Murray & Gregory, Ltd were manufacturers and shippers of lumber and lumber products in Saint John, New Brunswick. The company was founded in 1846 or 1847. In 1867 it was named Long, Barnhill & Co., and when Mr. Long died Mr. W. H. Murray purchased his interest and that of Barnhill. Mr. J. Fraser Gregory had been employed in the business since 1881 and in 1899 was made a partner. W.H. Murray retired in 1904 and died a year later. The same year the company was organized as a limited liability company, with Mr. J. Fraser Gregory as president and manager. The mill was destroyed by fire in 1903, but was immediately rebuilt. The buildings included a saw mill, a woodworking factory, and a dry kiln.
