Gregg relocated to northwest Arkansas from Moulton, Alabama as a child in 1835. After growing up on a Washington County farm, Gregg read law in Fayetteville, Arkansas and passed the bar exam, rising to become a prominent attorney in town. During the Civil War, Gregg was in charge of the Fourth Arkansas Cavalry (Federal) He was elected to the Arkansas House of Representatives after the war, later becoming the prosecutor for the Fourth Circuit, Chancellor of the Pulaski Chancery Court, and an associate justice of the Arkansas Supreme Court.
