Solano County, CA Biographies





JOHN G. KREGELO.
John G. Kregelo, superintendent of the Masonic and Odd Fellow cemetery at Vallejo, is one of the best known residents of Solano county. He was formerly a soldier of the United States army and later was for several years an attache of the Mare Island shipyard. Though a native of the Old Line state, he has been a resident of California for almost thirty years and is quite content to regard this as his permanent home. Mr. Kregelo was born in the village of James in Dorchester county, Maryland, May 29, 1869, and is a son of John C and Jennie B. (Fair) Kregelo, both also natives of that state and both now deceased, their entire lives having been spent in Maryland.

When he was eight years of age an adventurous impulse prompted John G. Kregelo to run away from home. He presently found a home on a farm in his native state and there remained until he was eighteen years of age, when he took up the trade of carriage blacksmithing, becoming proficient in that work. Later he enlisted in the artillery branch of the United States army and while thus in service became stationed in California, presently becoming attached to the service at the Mare Island shipyards. For six years he continued thus connected, or until 1903. when he was appointed superintendent of the Masonic and Odd Fellow cemetery at Vallejo, and he has since been thus engaged, a period of more than twenty years, during which time many notable improvements have been made there. Mr. Kregelo is a member of the local lodges of the Masons and of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows.

Mr. Kregelo has been twice married, and by his first wife he is the father of two sons, John C. and Robert Leroy, both of whom are veterans of the World war with overseas records. Mr. and Mrs. Kregelo are republicans and are properly interested in the general civic affairs of the community.
