Hardback, Green Cloth, Gilt Titles To Spine, 8" 5", (vii) 244pp.. Edited and bound by Joanne Garland, Greenfield, Massachusetts. Comprising of a Limited Edition of 70 copies.


Sarah [1] Cook, born around 1752 to a Scottish merchant and his wife, married a Russian naval officer, Grand Admiral Samuel K. Greig (see facing page - Frontispiece). Their union would give rise to children and grandchildren who later married into the Russian nobility. This extensive Greig family line is described in detail in the present voume.
This work is a new examination of the descendants of Sarah [1] (Cook) Greig (c. 1752-1793) in Russia. The history of this family may be reconstructed to a degree from records such as the family burial ground in the Smolensky Cemetery, records in the Russian Archives, and historical references made in the mass of publications available on Russian history.
As for the eventual fate of this family line, inquiry made to Dr. Dimitry Fedosov of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow resulted in the opinion that Sarah [1] (Cook) Greig's Russian descendants were later "exterminated" during the Russian Revolution.
We know know that the last male survivor who carried the name Greig was probably Baron Ivan von Greig of Konigsburg, who died in 1956. However, a possibility remains that female branches of the Greig family may have produced descendants who are still living. One of these branches is that of Vera Greig, who married Count Peter Ivanovich Tolstoy, brother of the director of the Hermitage.
