Mr. Greig was one of the oldest settlers in Osborne county.  He came to Osborne county, Kansas, in 1873, and settled in section 6 of Winfield township.  He was a Farmer and Stock Raiser on his 240 acres of land.  His Farm was known as "Orchard Home".

Not only was he a farmer, he had a business in General Merchandise which he advertise; "Everything commonly kept in a good country store."  There was a post office on his land called Twin Creek.  Now I couldn't till by the county map if the store was in the post office or in another building.  He was post master of Twin Creek post office from January 3, 1893 to October 19, 1905.

When the post office closed on November 15, 1915, his post office address became Osborne, Kansas, which was 3 miles north from the farm.
