About us

Welcome to the Grant Y-DNA Project

The project is open to (the DNA of) all male Grant's who wish to know more about their early lineage.  By clicking on the links on the navy blue line above, you can learn more about the project and test results.  The tables contain the current Y-DNA and mtDNA values for the Grant DNA Project. This information is linked directly from the on-line database at FamilyTreeDNA. Values in red are predicted by FTDNA and values in green have been confirmed by SNP testing.  (As this is a surname project, you will notice we pay a lot more attention to the yDNA than we do the mtDNA for obvious reasons.) -- 

Kit Backgrounds (this page is out of date and will be updated in the coming months, as we try to keep up with the data and FTDNA changes to haplogroups)


The following kit owners’ claims regarding ancestry are made by and are solely the responsibility of the person submitting the information.  As administrators for this project, we have not investigated and can make no guarantee that the genealogical information is accurate. We would urge any interested party to scrutinize all available data carefully before drawing any conclusions.

Kit 124908 – No Information

Kit 126897 is a direct descendant of the Grants of Sheuglie in Glenurquhart,Inverness-shire through Alexander Grant 4th of Sheuglie (taken prisoner afterCulloden and died imprisoned at Tilbury) through his 4th son Patrick Grant 1stof Lochletter, Glenurquhart (died 1806), then through his son LieutenantColonel Alexander Grant HEICS 2nd of Lochletter (born 1753, died 1816), throughhis second son, William Grant of the 92nd Regiment (born 1796, in CalcuttaIndia , died 1852). Look forward to a chat.

Kit 133216 is a seventh generation descendant of Alpin Grant, wholeft Scotland September 1775 on the ship Glasgow bound for New York:

  • Sons of: Willard Geddes Grant b. Feb 1903 Trinidad d. Sept. 1979 Toronto, ON, Canada
  • Son of: Thomas Geddes Grant b. May 1866, Merigomish, NS, d. Sept. 1934, Trinidad
  • Son of: Rev. Dr. Kenneth James Grant, b. Feb. 1839; d. Jan. 1931, Halifax, NS
  • Son of George Grant, b. December 1799, d. Nov 1892 Pictou County, NS
  • Son of Peter Grant: b. ca. 1767 Glen Urquhart, Scotland; d. October 1859, Scotch Hill, NS
  • Son of: Alpin Grant b. March 1740, Glen Urquhart, Scotland; d. date unknown, probably Pictou County, N.S. 
  • Son of: John Grant (also known as John Roy Grant, MacAllanvain) born ca. 1700, probably Glen Urquhart, Scotland.  Date and place of death unknown, likely in Glen Urquhart, Inverness hire, Scotland.
  • Son of: Allan Grant (known as Allan Bain)

The ship wasprevented from entering the harbour by a British man-o’-war H.M.S. Asia (“lestthey join the disturbances ashore”) and was sent on to Boston where they wereenlisted in the 2nd Battalion of a loyalist force, the Young Highland Emigrants(later the Royal Highland Emigrants, the 84th Regiment of Foo).  The 2ndBattalion was eventually stationed at Windsor, Nova Scotia and Alpin Grant wasdischarged there in October 1783.  He received a grant of 500 acres ofland in Pictou County for his military service, although he sold it and bought100 acres of land on the harbour just east of the town of Pictou.

The OPR for Urquhart and Glenmoriston, indicates that Alpin Grant was born on15 March 1740.  The records are missing for the period when his first twochildren, Peter and Elizabeth, were born. There is an entry for the birth ofhis second son, James, in September 1773 and it notes that his wife’s name wasMargaret Grant.  They lived at a place called Drum Fadda, which is nearCorrimony House, Glen Urquhart, Inverness Shire.  Alpin Grant had a sisterAnn who married Alex Grant, Carnoch, in 1749 and they also later lived at DrumFadda.  Their elder brother, James Grant, married Janet (Jannet) Grant on13 February 1755.  James and Jannet came to Nova Scotia on the ship Hectorin 1773.  He was a miller by trade and they eventually settled atSpringfield, Pictou County, Nova Scotia.  It is believed there was anotherbrother, John Grant, who served with the 42nd Reg’t. (the Black Watch) duringthe American campaign.  When he was discharged in Halifax in 1783, Johngave Alpin the right to land that he had earned because of his militaryservice. 

 The OPR gives their father’s name as John, or John Roy Grant, Meiklie,and the entry for James’s wedding includes a further name for John Roy, that of“MacAllanvain” or “son of Allan Bain”, or Allan the Fair. Meiklie is at thewestern end of Glen Urquhart and was part of the estate of Grant ofCorrimony.  DNA evidence indicates that this family was descended fromJohn Grant, 1st of Corrimony, by an unrecorded birth, likely in the period1509-1515.

Kit 197206 - Owner is a Grant, grandson of Hugh Grant (ca.1844-1924) from Nova Scotia and Ellen Brazille, Indian of the Klamath Riverarea, northern California. Hugh came to California in the 1860s, and was a sonof Paul Grant (1816-1894) of French River, Pictou County, Nova Scotia. Ourresearch found Paul was a son of John Grant (ca 1776+-ca.1841+)who was a son ofAlpin Grant (ca. 1740-ca.1817+) who came to Pictou County in 1784. This is thesame ancestor Alpin Grant in Kit 133216.

Kit 197946 descends from John Ban Grant:

  • John Ban Grant m. (possibly) Margaret ____
  • Peter Grant; Farmer; born 1798; died 1850, Charlottenburg Township, Glengarry County, Ontario
  • James Wright Grant (third of five sons), born 1842, Charlottenburg Township; yeoman; emigrated in 1882 to Cameron, Missouri; died 1911 in Cameron.

You also may be interested to knowthat Alexander Grant, the founder of Alexander Grant & Co. (now GrantThornton) comes from this line. He was James Wright Grant's fourth son (by hissecond wife). Alexander was born in Missouri in 1898, founded the company in1924, and died in Chicago in 1938 at the age of 40.
His lineage is as follows:

  • Father - Harold Kelly Grant
  • G-Father - James Wright Grant
  • GG-Grandfather - James Wright Grant
  • GGG-Grandfather - Peter Grant
  • GGGG-Grandfather - John Ban Grant
  • GGGGG-Grandfather - Peter Grant

John Ban Grant whois on the E 1/2 of lot 10 on the front. I have the Abstract for the sameland and it was given to Peter Grant from the Crown.   Peter Grantleft Glenmorriston, Inverness-shire, Scotland in 1774.  His two sons, Johnand Duncan, arrived in America in 1773.  Peter and his family originallysettled on Sir William Johnson's land in the Mohawk River valley in NewYork.  After the war they moved to Charlottenburgh, Glengarry, UpperCanada (Ontario), in 1783-1784 due to the persecution they werereceiving.  Peter was granted land that was on the St. LawrenceRiver.  Both John and Duncan also fought in the war and received land fortheir services as well.  They were brave and loyal Scotsmen andrepresented the Grant Family well.

Kit 21344 - is tied to Thomas Grant of Maury/Marshall County, TN, whowas born circa 1778. We do not know anything about him prior to 1815. Familystories suggest he was indentured for seven years and that was how he obtainedpassage to N. America. The stories suggest he came from Scotland and his wife,Sarah Glover, came from N. Ireland. However, these references could havepertained to their parents. I have exhausted all descendent lines except forone. I am currently seeking any descendents of Thomas' son, John Grant, who wasborn about 1805 and married Martha (Mary) Shannon, January 1, 1840 in MarshallCounty, TN. They moved with most of the Grant siblings to Pontotoc County,Mississippi in the early 1840's and then to Poinsett County, Arkansas prior to1860. They had two sons, David and Jackson. If I can find a male descendent ofeither, perhaps I can obtain a lead on old Thomas' parents or origin.  Mylineage top down is a follows:  Thomas Grant, James Davis Grant, JamesPolk Grant, Stephen Allen Grant, and to me.

Below is his lineage down to the kit#:

Kit 27245 is a descendant of William Grant born 1847 in Evanton,Ross-shire, Scotland, who emigrated to Dunedin, New Zealand in 1879. Theidentity of his Grant father cannot yet be proven, but it looks highly likelythat his father was William McKenzie Grant (1827-1903, a tailor in Elgin,Morayshire) who was the son of Peter Grant (1784-1861, a grieve who moved fromGlenurquhart to Forres, Morayshire), who was the son of Robert Grant (bornabout 1760) and his wife Elizabeth Grant, who lived in 1784 at Oldton of Sheugliein Glenurquhart, Inverness-shire, Scotland. Robert was a soldier in the 42ndRegiment. Robert is likely a male line descendant of the cadet families ofeither Grant of Corrimony or perhaps Grant of Sheuglie, both in Glenurquhart.In 1790 Robert and his wife were living at Ballintrom (near Tomchrasky) inneighbouring Glenmoriston, but later children were born in Glenurquhart. SeeKits 42813 and 90842 for lineal descendants of this Robert Grant.

Group A (Chiefly), Subgroup 3: R-P312>DF19>DF88>Z17274+ (known as the MacRobie Grants, the earliest branch on the Chiefly family tree)

Kit 121522 is a descendants of John Grant (c1700) in Inverlochie andhis wife, Jean Forbes. Their place of origin is unknown. They had severalchildren, all born in the Parish of Kirkmichael, Scotland. John came to Americain the mid 1700s but it is unknown whether he stayed or returned to Scotland.One son was William Grant (1743) of Trois-Riviers, Quebec, merchant and seniortrading partner of Grant, Campion and Co. of the Northwest Co. William marriedMarguerite Fafard dit Laframbois at Trois-Rivieres in 1787 and was the fatherof HBC Chief Trader of Ft. Hall, Richard Grant. Richard Grant married Marie AnnBreland and was the father of Johnny/John F. Grant. Johnny was a trader andrancher at Deer Lodge, Montana, and the originator of the Grant-Kohr's RanchNational Historic Site. He was also one of the original settlers of what is nowthe Carman area of Manitoba, Canada. Other families related or associated withthese Grants were Laframbois, Dobie, Breland, Rowand, Grant, Kittson, Higgins,McLauchlin, Dempsey, Tendoy,LaVatta, Bruneau, McIver, Dease and many more. Myinterest lies in identifying the Scottish place of origin of this family andother Grant connections.

Kit 175989 descends from James Cuthbert Grant, son of HBC ChiefTrader Richard Grant (same as Kits 30499 & 121522) and his second spouse,Sarah aka Indian Woman at Oxford House. James aka Jimmy Grant was born c1836 ator near Oxford House and returned to his father’s custody at Fort Hall, Idaho,when he was about 10 years old. He married Marie Cadotte and had children MaryGrant Rides At The Door, Julia Grant Magee, Richard Grant, James Cuthbert GrantJr., John Grant, Emma Grant, and Maggie Grant. James/Jimmy died at Dupuyer,Montana, in 1883. Some of the family history is detailed in Blackfoot HeritageBook. For more info and pictures, please see: http://www.william-grant-of-trois-rivieres-genealogy.ca/index.html

Kit 178979 can be traced back to his GreatGrandfather Reagion Havelick Grant. His grandfather was Orris Osalfort Grant,and his father was Orris Ulysses Grant. He has traced the family back to a JohnGrant, but there are so many, he does not know which trail to follow.  Hewas told the family came over from Scotland to New Brunswick, Canada in thelate 1600's or early 1700's and moved to Canterbury, York N.B. then intoHodgdon, Maine in the early 1800's.  Reagion was born in Hodgdon.  Hehas other names but do not know how they fit in.  "The more Ilook into it, the further I get lost."

Kit 21840 A:2 is a descendant of John Grant of Long Island, NewYork. 

I.    1783 John Grant of Long Island, New York, His WifeElizabeth (        ) (Grant) Cronkhite, AndHis Descendants

A summary of what is known of John Grant is as follows.  He marriedElizabeth and they had the following children:
     1)    Peter Grant, born in about 1771or1772 in New York,
     2)    William Grant, born in about1774,
     3)    Finlay Grant,
     4)    Laurence Grant, and
     5)     John Grant

John Grant was a private in the King's American Regiment and died on August 31,1783, in camp at Long Island, New York.

For convenience of reference, this John Grant is hereafter referred to as 1783[year of death] John Grant of Long Island, New York. [place of death] andsometimes as 1783 John Grant.

Parents and Ancestors of 1783 John Grant of Long Island, New York:

The parents of 1783 John Wright of Long Island, New York, have not as yet been identified.
However, Y-DNA sequencing has established that the Y-DNA of two descendantsof1783 John Grant of Long Island, New York, matches that of James Grant, Lord Strathspey,the current Chief of Clan Grant.  These Y-DNA sequences are set forth atthe Grant DNA Project at: https://www.familytreedna.com/public/GRANT?iframe=yresults.

Kit 212164 refers to the descendants of Donald Grant of Inverlochie (c1677-1738) and Margaret Cumming (c1690-1728). Their known children were: Elizabeth Grant m. John Ross in Croft of Inverlochie; Marjory Grant m. John Grant in Rirorhe; and Beatrix Grant b.c1711-1780 who married Patrick, also recorded as Peter Grant of Glenlochy (c1709-1783)

Patrick/Peter & Beatrix Grant were the parents of Grace Grant, mother of Aeneas Cameron of Timiskaming in the the Canadian fur trade; John Grant of Kilgraston former Chief Justice of Jamaica; Francis Grant of Kilgraston also formerly Chief Justice of Jamaica and the father of the famous painter, Francis Grant; Mrs. Mary Grant of Delmore; and Margaret Grant married to Patrick Johnstone.

Donald of Inverlochie’s oldest son was John Grant (other son(s) names are unknown.) and he is the ancestor of kit 30499 and other descendants of William Grant of Trois-Rivieres. John Grant was born c1700 probably in Inverlochie. There is no marriage record to his wife (1) Jean Forbes. The date of birth of their fist child, however, was 1739, so it was probably around that time. Their children were: Donald Grant 1739; Jean Grant 1740; William Grant 1743; Elizabeth Grant 1745; Margaret Grant 1746; Margaret Grant 1748; Ann Grant 1751. 

William Grant left Scotland in 1743; Was a Liet. Col. in the British Militia in 1775 & 1776 during the Blockade of Quebec. He joined the Canadian fur trade and is known as William Grant of Trois-Rivieres to distinguish him form other others of the same name in the same business. He was closely associated with Dobie, Campion, Gerrard and of course, his nephew, Aeneas Cameron and many others. In 1787, He married Marguerite Fafard dit Laframboise. They had children: William 1787; Jean Baptiste 1788; Marguerite 1790; Jean Francois 1791; Richard Grant 1794; Son 1796; Jeanne 1799; Marie Marguerite Grant 1800. William died and was buried at Sorel in 1810.

John Grant in Inverlochie did not, as previously stated, come to North America. Following the birth of his daughter Ann, in 1751, Jean Forbes brobably died. In 1754, John married Margaret Cumming. Their children were: Donald Grant 1756; a baptized but unnamed son 1758; James Grant 1759; George Grant 1761; Cuthbert Grant 1763; Ann Grant 1765; Girsel/Grace 1767. It is also known that John was a farmer,  and his son, Cuthbert, was a drover. Both sequestered for being unable to pay their debts. John died in September, 1791, but his burial place is unknown. There is no marker in the the Kirkmichael cemetery.

Cuthbert Grant seems to have selected sequestration penalty option 3 - in 1792 he left Scotland, went to Canada and joined the Canadian fur trade. He was known as Cuthbert Grant of Trois-Rivieres to distinguish him from others of the same name in the same business. It is unknown if he married. He was alive in 1805. It is unknown where and when he died. 

The OPR page listing the unnamed Grant son was missing all but 3 of the childrens’ names. It is possibly baby Grant was John Grant and also came to Canada. 

William & Marguerite’s son, Richard Grant was a lieutenant in the War of 1812;  joined the North West Company, and transferred to the HBC in 1821 when the companies amalgamated. He became Chief Trader of Fort Hall. 

Richard Grant married (1) Marie Ann Breland probably at FT. Edmonton and had children: Richard Grant, William Charles Grant, Jeanne Marguerite Grant and John Francis Grant. Johnny/John F.Grant.

Richard retired in 1852, and died at Walla Walla, Washington, in 1862.

Other families related or associated with these Grants were Laframboise, Dobie, Breland, Rowand, Grant, Kittson, Higgins, McLauchlin, Dempsey, Tendoy, LaVatta, Bruneau, McIver, Dease and many more. 

I am particularly interested in establishing further connections between the Inverlochie Grants, the Glenlochy Grants and their connections with the Camerons. I am also interested in the various Grants of the fur trade era and 'our' Grant relationship to them and other fur trading families between 1700 and1900. 

Our direct line:

  • Donald Grant of Inverlochie

  • John Grant in Inverochie (& Jean Forbes)

  • William Grant of Trois-Rivieres (& Marguerite Fafard dit Laframboise)

  • HBC Chief Trader Richard Grant (& Marie Anne Breland)

  • John Nelson Grant (& Frances Norton)

  • Francis Nelson Grant (& Amanda Lavoie)

Kit 30499 refers to the descendants of Donald Grant of Inverlochie (c1677-1738) and Margaret Cumming (c1690-1728). Their known children were: Elizabeth Grant m. John Ross in Croft of Inverlochie; Marjory Grant m. John Grant in Rirorhe; and Beatrix Grant b.c1711-1780 who married Patrick, also recorded as Peter Grant of Glenlochy (c1709-1783)

Patrick/Peter & Beatrix Grant were the parents of Grace Grant, mother of Aeneas Cameron of Timiskaming in the the Canadian fur trade; John Grant of Kilgraston former Chief Justice of Jamaica; Francis Grant of Kilgraston also formerly Chief Justice of Jamaica and the father of the famous painter, Francis Grant; Mrs. Mary Grant of Delmore; and Margaret Grant married to Patrick Johnstone.

Donald of Inverlochie’s oldest son was John Grant (other son(s) names are unknown.) and he is the ancestor of kit 30499 and other descendants of William Grant of Trois-Rivieres. John Grant was born c1700 probably in Inverlochie. There is no marriage record to his wife (1) Jean Forbes. The date of birth of their fist child, however, was 1739, so it was probably around that time. Their children were: Donald Grant 1739; Jean Grant 1740; William Grant 1743; Elizabeth Grant 1745; Margaret Grant 1746; Margaret Grant 1748; Ann Grant 1751. 

William Grant left Scotland in 1743; Was a Liet. Col. in the British Militia in 1775 & 1776 during the Blockade of Quebec. He joined the Canadian fur trade and is known as William Grant of Trois-Rivieres to distinguish him form other others of the same name in the same business. He was closely associated with Dobie, Campion, Gerrard and of course, his nephew, Aeneas Cameron and many others. In 1787, He married Marguerite Fafard dit Laframboise. They had children: William 1787; Jean Baptiste 1788; Marguerite 1790; Jean Francois 1791; Richard Grant 1794; Son 1796; Jeanne 1799; Marie Marguerite Grant 1800. William died and was buried at Sorel in 1810.

John Grant in Inverlochie did not, as previously stated, come to North America. Following the birth of his daughter Ann, in 1751, Jean Forbes brobably died. In 1754, John married Margaret Cumming. Their children were: Donald Grant 1756; a baptized but unnamed son 1758; James Grant 1759; George Grant 1761; Cuthbert Grant 1763; Ann Grant 1765; Girsel/Grace 1767. It is also known that John was a farmer,  and his son, Cuthbert, was a drover. Both sequestered for being unable to pay their debts. John died in September, 1791, but his burial place is unknown. There is no marker in the the Kirkmichael cemetery.

Cuthbert Grant seems to have selected sequestration penalty option 3 - in 1792 he left Scotland, went to Canada and joined the Canadian fur trade. He was known as Cuthbert Grant of Trois-Rivieres to distinguish him from others of the same name in the same business. It is unknown if he married. He was alive in 1805. It is unknown where and when he died. 

The OPR page listing the unnamed Grant son was missing all but 3 of the childrens’ names. It is possibly baby Grant was John Grant and also came to Canada. 

William & Marguerite’s son, Richard Grant was a lieutenant in the War of 1812;  joined the North West Company, and transferred to the HBC in 1821 when the companies amalgamated. He became Chief Trader of Fort Hall. 

Richard Grant married (1) Marie Ann Breland probably at FT. Edmonton and had children: Richard Grant, William Charles Grant, Jeanne Marguerite Grant and John Francis Grant. Johnny/John F.Grant. Johnny was a trader and rancher at Deer Lodge, Montana, and the originator of the Grant-Kohr's Ranch National Historic Site. He was also one of the original settlers of what is now the Carman area of Manitoba, Canada. 

Richard Grant m(2) Indian-Woman-At-Oxford-House aka Sarah, and had one son, James Cuthbert Grant.

Richard Grant m(3) Helene MacDonald (daughter of Big Finnan MacDonald and widow of William Kittson. Richard and Helene were: Helene Wilhelmena; Julia Priscilla (m Christopher Powers Higgins); Adelina Grant.

Richard retired in 1852, and died at Walla Walla, Washington, in 1862.

Other families related or associated with these Grants were Laframboise, Dobie, Breland, Rowand, Grant, Kittson, Higgins, McLauchlin, Dempsey, Tendoy, LaVatta, Bruneau, McIver, Dease and many more. 

I am particularly interested in establishing further connections between the Inverlochie Grants, the Glenlochy Grants and their connections with the Camerons.

Kit 241440 – No information

Kit 27247 is a descendant of William Grant (1809-1873), a tailorand clothier in Forres, Morayshire, Scotland who married MargaretMcLeod.  William's earliest known ancestor is Charles Grant "aliasMcRobie" (c1681 - 1758), who was a tenant farmer at Balnellan, Inveravonin Strathspey, Scotland and boatman of a ferry across the Spey/Avonrivers.  Charles Grant had many descendants in the parishes of Inveravonand Knockando and who were usually known by the patronymic "aliasMcRobie". Research indicates that the McRobie Grants may have been tied tothe Grants of Glenlochy in the parish of Abernethy and Kincardine, which iscontiguous to Strathavon, Banffshire.  27247 is definitely an InveravonGrant and descended from the same family as 39690.

Kit 31811 Grandfather was Robert Grant- born about 1895 died 1983.My grandfather was born near the River Livet - not far from the village ofTomintoul, Aberdeenshire, just a few miles from the Glenlivet Distillery - infact he worked there and did his first gardening training for the Smith family- the owners of the distillery. All of my Grant ancestors I believe were RCChurch - although my GF gave up his connection to that kirk. The Grants wereall shepherds and indentured farmers all coming as far as I can tell fromSpeyside.

  • My GGGrandfather’s name was Adelbert Everett Grant, born October 1860

This is where I am not sure …
My GGGGrandfather’s name was Charles Grant .. I don’t have a birth date, butbased on Adelbert’s birth date I’m assuming it’s 1837-1839?  He married aNative American woman from the Passamaquoddy tribe.  I have sent an emailto the tribe to request information.  Some family members have her namelisted as Abigail Garnett … that doesn’t seem correct to me.

The Grant Clan papers were said to be in Adelbert’s possession and weredestroyed while he was in a nursing home.  His daughter wrote a summary ofwhat she had read as a child.

Kit 482823 is a descendant of of William Grant of Montebello, Quebec City,Canada:

  • Father - Philippe Grant
  • Birth: 9 February 1914, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
  • Death: 27 September 2000, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
  • Grandfather - Joseph John Grant
  • Birth: 22 July 1879, Montebello, Quebec, Canada
  • Death: 22 July 1971, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
  • G-Grandfather - John Hugh Grant
  • Birth: 18 June 1830, Montebello, Quebec, Canada
  • Death: 13 April 1879, Montebello, Quebec, Canada
  • GG-Grandfather - William Grant
  • Birth: circa 1784, Scotland?
  • Death: circa 1845, somewhere, Montebello, Quebec, Canada                                                       

About William Grant:

The first official record about him is the marriage record: he marriedElizabeth Lagueux at the Quebec City's presbyterian church, St-Andrews, 13November 1811. The record states that he is approximately 27 years old andElizabeth (nick name Frasine), approximately 22 years old. At this time, thereare many Grants in Quebec, merchants and traders and a certain political elite.It seems that he his related to none of them. He emerges as an incredible andcreative individualist, a self made man. William and Elizabeth had 11 childrenborn in Quebec City, Lévis (across the St Laurence) and Montebello on theOttawa river, where the family eventually settled circa 1826.

In the Quebec City's Notre Dame parish census and other census, William alwaysidentifies his birth place as Scotland and his religion as"protestant". Elizabeth is french speaking and catholic. So he musthave learned french.

For now, my main hypothesis is that he came to Canada on the ship Sarah in1801, aged approximately 17. The Sarah travelled from Inverness to Pictou, NovaScotia. The Sarah passenger list mentions a William Grant, laborer from GlenKilmorach, traveling on his own. From 1801 to his wedding in 1811, gives himample time to learn his trade of shipwright, to move to Quebec City and learnFrench.

I have over twenty DNA Allen cousins. Several have excellent paper back toGeorge Allen who came from England in 1635 settling at Sandwich, MA.  Imatch those with George Allen proof 66/67.

We have a strong family tradition that our Allen line is Scottish. One ofSylvanus's daughters, in a census report, said her father (Sylvanus) was b inScotland and his preferred language was Scottish. (Gaelic).

There is a strong possibility that my line of Allen's branched off beforeGeorge Allen was born (1585), and went to Scotland. This would mean, GeorgeAllen would not be a grandfather type, but a cousin type relationship. However,George may be a grandfather type and one of his descendants went to Canada andmarried into a strong Scottish family, thus the tradition we are of Scottishdescent.

Kit 25705 is tied to a branch of Grant's living in the North Eastof England with origins as Horse Breeders and farmers around the Dundalk areaof County Louth in Ireland. Family stories have connected with President USGrant both in Ireland and his visit to the North East of England. Thisfired my interest in my Family origins. It appears we are directly relatedto the Stewart Chiefs of the Clan Grant possibly a branch of the Grants ofGlenlochy related to Robert Grant the Ambassador and related toothers within the project in Canada, Australia and the USA. There are anumber of theories can explain how we got to Ireland.  As supportersof Mary Queen of Scotts moving to escape persecution, Catholicrelations during the Huntly rebellion moving from Scotland possibly withRebel Grants of Carron, or moving to Ireland during King JamesI, Plantation of Ulster to gain land.

The earliest possible relative I have traced is:
Felix Grant born in 1718 and a Catholic could also mean that there are Jacobitelinks to our move to Ireland.  However, it appears the family wasestablished farmers renting a great deal of Land from the Crown bythen, so any Jacobite link appears highly unlikely.  I have severalsources left to explore which hopefully will supply further links.Clearly, a great deal of historical research will need to be carried out. MyBranch therefore seems to be a very interesting Scottish, Irish English mixwith many cousins across the Atlantic.

As I understand the dna results my roots are primarilyIrish/Scottish and that would be understandable as my fathers line traces backto Scotland and my mother's family were all from Scotland, primarily from TheIsle of Mull.

Kit 50583 Grant family of Strachan Banchory Ternan Kincardinshire.From 1770’s,

  • His son, my uncle, William John Grant born 3 June 1914 Victoria Australia gave the DNA sample. I am still plodding through this family’s history and am awaiting a disc of photographs of papers from the Drum Castle Archive in Drumoak, Aberdeen.
  • My grandfather was  Joseph Grant born 9 September 1871 Maldon Victoria Australia. Son of Joseph b 1826
  • Joseph born 1826 immigrated to Australia in 1850’s, married and had 7 living children. Family lore said that we were descended from a “younger son of a Chief of the Clan” and DNA testing has shown this is possible story. I am as yet unable to find out where we exactly fit but I am researching a hypothesis which will probably take quite some time. I have a fairly comprehensive family tree built up of the families from 1773 and information on this family back to about 1670. I am happy to share my knowledge.
  • my great great grandfather George Grant , the 6th child born April 1783. George married Elizabeth Seivewright at Drumoak on 25 July 1812. George Grant “Servitor to the Lady of Drume “ died in 1639. Drumoak is right next door to Strachan so I bought the Will from Scotlands.   There were 9 children, William, John, Thomas, Henery, Mary, David, Joseph, Hellen, and Jane.
  • John Grant married Mary Will 4 December 1773 at Strachan. There were at least 15 children:
  • There was a George Grant died 1680 in Shampir which is in the cluster of farms/villages that make up the Strachan area.

My family knew that they were “descendedfrom a younger son of the Chief of Grant”.  Adrian has said that it couldhave been a younger brother of James Stewart from whom we are descended. Ifthat is the case I think my ancestors had very good memories for the legend!

So—my Grants have been in the Strachan area for at least 400 years and I havethe paper trail for proof.
I will let you know what the outcome of the castle papers is as I may be ableto go back even further.

Kit 85435 indicates that the oldest known relative I am certain ofis:
John Henry Grant, born in Frederick County, Maryland, February 19,1790, marriedAugust 7, 1817 to Susannah Johnson who was from Pennsylvania and born 1794 anddied August 5, 1852. John Henry Grant died November 19,1853 in Pickaway County,Ohio. He was a private in the War of 1812, served with th first regiment underCaptain William Key from Ross County, Ohio. John Henry Grant is buried at theJohn Graffis farm in Washington Township, Pickaway County, Ohio.
His children are:

  • Samuel Grant (May 28, 1819 in Pickaway County, Ohio - July 9, 1895 in Pickaway County, Ohio),
  • Susannah Grant (1830 - ?), George Grant (1834 - January 20, 1864) and he was with the Second Ohio Calvary during the Civil War,
  • Peter Grant (1835 - ?), Marie (1838 - ?),
  • John Henry Grant Jr. (1845 - July 23, 1863) and he died at the Big Black River in Mississippi as a Private in the 42nd OVI age 18 and buried at Zion Cemetery in Washington Township Pickaway County Ohio,
  • Elizabeth (1847 - died at age of 16), Minerva (1850 - 1860). That is all the children of which I am aware. 

John Henry Grant is my 3rd Great Grandfather and Samuel is my 2nd GreatGrandfather.

I was told by a Darlene Ironmonger a few years ago that the only Grant left inFredrick County Md 1790 was a William Grant. And she felt it was my John HenryGrant's father, but I have never heard from her again. And I have never beenable to find anything else about him. I even e-mailed the USA Grant Clanresearcher and have never heard from him either. And when I had the DNA testdone they told me my Grant line was from the Lock Ness area of Glenmorissonarea and they matched me to the Chief Stewart of Grant.

Kit 112611 earliest known ancestor was John of Shettleston,Scotland, who had son, James (1828-1883), a potato merchant; son William, ablacksmith of Grafton Square, Glasgow; and son Robert, who emigrated toAustralia My great-grandfather was also a James Grant, who sired 13 children.Four died in infancy, but a son, John, eventually immigrated to Canada in 1910.Sons William and James died in 1863. A later son, James (1872-1954), was agents clothier and then Robert, (1877-1943) was a butcher, Thomas (1879-1951)was a wholesale grocer, and Andrew (1879 - ?) went to Canada. John, who went toCanada, and his wife, Helen Stewart, had six children. My grandfather wasWilliam Grant (1864-19380. And, my father was Archibald Montgomerie Grant(1900-1972). His brothers were William Montgomerie Grant (1903-1975) and James(Jim) Montgomerie Grant (1910-1990), all of Hamilton, Lanarkshire, Scotland. Iam trying to find connections earlier than 1829 and where in Highlands ofScotland our line originated and its connection within Clan Grant.

Kit 7215 is tied to John Francis Grant the son of Effingham HowardGrant/Jane Harrison married Jan. 28, 1808 at St. Marylebone, Saint Mary-St.Marylebone Road, London, England. John was born in 1821 and after marryingMaria Woodhams, in 1849 immigrated to NY/Michigan in 1855. His brothers/sistersstayed in London; their names were James, Thomas, Jane Lydia, Charles, George,Mary (Alice?), Susan and Robert. Effingham Howard Grant was born in Scotland,exactly where unknown, about 1776. Perhaps he is the Effingham that is one ofthe last of the Grants of Carron that are mentioned in Sir William Fraser'sbook, Chiefs of Grant, written in 1883. The Effingham mentioned there leftEdinburgh (Abbey of Holyrood House) in 1790, apparently penniless when hisfather, James Grant of Carron, died deeply in debt. Trying to make a connectionthere or get any further information on EHG.

  • Son of U.S. Grant, b. Jan 14, 1915, Harmon County, Oklahoma; d. Dec. 11, 2010, San Antonio, TX
  • Son of Angus Herbert Grant, b. May 17, 1887, Traverse City, Michigan,; d. Oct 25, 1975 Hollis, Oklahoma 
  • Son of Charles Herbert Grant, b. Dec. 12 1862, Traverse City, Michigan; d. Feb. 12, 1939, Choctaw, Oklahoma       
  • Son of John Francis Grant, b. before Feb. 21 (Jan 22?), 1821, Kendal, Westmorland, England; d. March 16, 1883, Traverse City, Michigan         
  • Son of Effingham Howard Grant, b. 1776 in Scotland; d. Feb. 18, 1841, Kendal, Westmorland, England,      
  • POSSIBLY son of Captain James Grant of Carron, who died 1790 at the Abbey of Holyrood, Edinburgh, Scotland. (Not proven by documentation, but is assumed by others.    

Of interest is that based on DNAevidence, it appears that I am a Gordon and not a Grant. Using the Y-DNA67results, I am 2 or 3 steps away from four Gordons and nowhere is there a Grant lurkingin the background. My goal now is to try and find one of the Antigua (Carron)Grant’s that immigrated from Scotland in the late 1700’s and compare their DNAwith my DNA. If we are descended from the same Grant (Gordon), it wouldestablish that I am from the offspring of Captain James Grant of Carron. Againbased on the DNA the Gordon/Grant liaison occurred in the early 1700s or evenin the 1600s if we consider the number of steps I am removed from the “true”Gordons.

Kit 42347 descended from: 

  • James Grant born 26 January 1811 In Matilda, Ontario, Canada died 14 June 1883 Norfolk, St. Lawrence, New York,
  • His father was Julius John Grant believed to have been born 1785 either in Montgomery, New York or in Mass.
  • His father was John Grant born around 1750 and may have lived in Albany, New York before the revolution. John Grant fled to Canada and remained loyal to the crown.
  • His eldest son was John Grant and went to sea. His second son was Calvin and his third son was Julius John Grant. For a time they lived near Cornwall Ontario Canada. Around 1839 Julius John Grant's sons Julius, James, Jacob and John moved to Madrid, St. Lawrence, New York and by 1840 they had cleared land in Norfolk, St. Lawrence New York with the Road being called Grantville. At one time 36 Grant families lived in the area. Today some of the land is the Grantville State Forest of New York. Today some of their descendants can be found still living in the area.

I believe that we are the descendentsof John Grant the son of Noah Grant spoken of in the book by Arthur HastingsGrant "The Grant Family" which includes President U.S. Grant. JesseRoot Grant had a brother John Grant. All of this would mean that my GGGGrandfather was the cousin of U.S. Grant.

On March. 20, 1630, he embarked with his family on the " Mary and John " at Plymouth, Eng. , and reached Boston harbor May 30, 1630. He settled at Dorchester, Mass., and was admitted a freeman May 18, 1631 ; but, with many others, he disliked the close union of church and state that characterized the colony of Massachusetts Bay, as well as the growing tendency to establish the government in the hands of a privileged class and to minimize the voice of the people in the conduct of their own affairs. Accordingly, in Oct. 1635, he went overland to the Connecticut River, with the party that prepared for the settlement of Windsor, although his family probably did not remove to Windsor until the following April.

Kit 416777 – no information

Kit 38400 I know who our great-grandfather Grant is (our father'sgrandfather), and have a reasonable amount of information about him.  Hisname was Joseph Grant, he was born in 1827 and lived in Toms River,New Jersey most, if not all, of his life,  He married Amanda Irons in 1850- they had 9 children, 4 of whom lived to adulthood. (Their secondsurviving son, Andrew Jackson Grant was our father's biologicalfather.)  The problem we have is that we have conflicting information aboutwho Joseph's father was.  Information we have found leads us tobelieve he was born in New Jersey, but we've found two different names for him,which is the problem.   So that's as far as I've gotten with ourGrant line, and why I'm hoping the DNA testing might open a closed door for us.

Kit 151747 – is a member of the very large Virginia-A group over inthe THORNTON Surname DNA Project. The Virginia-A group has several mainsubgroups. Three of these subgroups descend from early settlers in Virginia inthe 1600s. These include William “The Gloucester Immigrant” THORNTON, HenryTHORNTON (thought to be William’s brother - but no proof of that), and Luke.Evidence has been presented that William was born in Ryvington, Lancashirec1621. Luke is thought by some to be William’s son by a first marriage whileothers believe he is the grandson of Henry THORNTON and Martha FLOUD ofMiddlesex, England, however, no proof exists for either theory. The Lukesubgroup is by far the largest within Virginia-A. The fourth group, theNorthamptonshire group (of which I am a member) can be traced back to thesouthwestern corner of Northamptonshire. My grandfather was:

  • William Matthew THORNTON [b. 1901/d. 1988 in Boston, Mass]; his father was
  • George Thomas THORNTON [b. 1866/Kingston, Ontario & d. 1935/Boston, Mass], who immigrated to Boston in 1890; his father was
  • Timothy J. THORNTON [b. 1839/Walsgrave on Sowe, Warwickshire, UK & d. 1907/Halifax, Nova Scotia], who immigrated to Canada in 1859 with the British military (Royal Newfoundland Company); his father was
  • George THORNTON [b. 1806/Wolverton, Buckinghamshire, UK & d. 1865/Walsgrave on Sowe, Warwickshire, UK].
  • George’s father (another George) seems to originate from a succession of George THORNTONs from Canons Ashby in southwestern corner of Northamptonshire beginning c1687. How the Northamptonshire group is connected to the ancestors of William, Henry, and Luke is unknown, but Ryvington, Lancashire is a long way from Canons Ashby!

The Y-DNA testing shows that the“THORNTON Virginia-A” group is closely related to the “GRANT Group 05 (Group10A-Grant/Thornton)” group and the “EDMONDSON Haplogroup I - Lineage I” group.These three groups most likely had a common progenitor that existed prior tothe adoption of surnames some 1,000 years ago (give-or-take a century or two!)We are L22+/P109+ which puts us in the I1d1 Y-Haplogroup; Sweden has thehighest concentration of this Haplogroup today – this suggests that the MRCA ofour EDMONDSON-GRANT-THORNTON group, or his descendant, may have arrived inEngland as a Swedish Viking over a millennium ago.

   1.  According to the cemetery where he is buried, WilliamDavid Grant was born in Fayette County, Illinois, USA.  The book, Kappa,Illinois: Its Early Families and History, indicates that Joseph Grant,William’s father, had originally moved from Indiana to Bowling Green, Illinois,in 1842, prior to the move to Woodford County.  Bowling Green, Illinois isin northern Fayette County.
   2.  Joseph is said to have told William David Grant’schildren that he had the same middle name.
   3.  William Grant’s birth information is based on his beingthe William Grant who married Patsy Browning in Bourbon County, Kentucky in1801.  Their information is found in a family bible, and it doesn’t matchWilliam’s 1820 Census information.  This might be explained by William’shousehold being an extended family, but it probably eliminates this case.

ThisGregor married Margaret Cameron, date unknown. They had a son Grigor Grant born12th Jan 1786. At this stage the family were still residing at Tomchaldon.Grigor went on to marry Betsie Grant of Rybhoanbhar, but at some stage thefamily moved to Rynuan. He was also a Corporal in the 10th Militia. An areanear Stranrue was named after him "Grigor’s Green" (Not known of nowby the locals). By all accounts he was a bit of a lad! I think this movecoincided with the croft at Thomchaldon burning down and or the marriage of hisson Gregor (born 3rd March 1827 my GGG Grandfather ) to Janet Stewart of Rynuanin 1850. Gregor and Janet had a son Donald Grant (born 3rd March 1855 my GGGrandfather( 1 of 7 children)). The more I look into the circumstances of theTulloch area the more I am convinced that Thomchaldon was perhaps a sub tenantcroft on the Mains of Tulloch farm. More research underway in the SeafieldPapers may resolve this. Donald then married Christina McLeod at Charlestown,Inverness. They had nine children. One of them Charles, my Grandfather, wasborn in Upper Kessock Street, Inverness. It would appear that the family movedaround the Inverness/ Aviemore area. The oldest 2 children appear to have beenborn in Bonar, Balphadrig a suburb of Inverness, they then moved to Alvie wheremy grandfather was born, then they move back to Inverness. Still looking forinformation earlier than 1740.

Kit 35990 is tied to Benoni Grant. Benoni was born in the late1750's, supposedly in the state of Connecticut. I don't know when or where hewas born or his parents. Benoni was an officer in the Revolutionary War. Isuspect after the war he lived in New York State (possibly the area of LakeGeorge). In 1793 he moved to the St. Armand area of Canada. He received 1200acres in Stanstead, Canada in 1800. By 1820 he moved to High Gate, Vermontwhere he received a pension for his services in the Rev. War. He eventuallymoved to Lake George,New York. He died March 6, 1825. By his first wife (nameunknown) he had 2 sons William and John. I'm a descendant of William and hiswife Lois Burch. William was born c.1776 in New York State. Benoni married hissecond wife Catherine Deal August 30, 1795 in St. Armand, Canada. He had alarge family with Catherine. I know a great deal about Benoni's descendants,but not his ancestors. Family history say he was related somehow to PresidentGrant, but I've never been able to prove or disprove it. It could have beenjust wishful thinking on the part of my ancestors.

Kit 118388 indicates his oldest known descendant is John Grant in Roxby, Yorkshire, England on or about 1450 AD. His son was William Grant, born about 1485 in the same place. This information was researched under the direction of Heber J. Grant when he was President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I cannot vouch for its accuracy. I do have a couple of family rumors on why it stops there. It is said when he made it back this far he found an illegitimate son and stopped the research. Also, I am told that my line is not related to President U.S. Grant. I am told that the King of England gave one of my descendants a large portion of land. As a sign of respect for the king, his descendant took the surname of Grant to show he accepted the grant of land he was given.

He left them about 1898-- we have no idea where he went after. We would appreciate anyone with close DNA ties to respond.

Kit 31534 traces back seven generations to a William Grant who was born either in Scotland or Virginia in the period between 1710 and 1720. All records of his birth were list either in the Revolution or Civil Wars unless there is some as yet unknown source. He married a Mary Morris but that is about all we know about her except that apparently she was born in that same 10 year period. William moved to North Carolina and died their in 1794. Mary died in 1800. The remaining members of my family, up to father, all lived in North Carolina. My family then includes Andrew, 1755-1825, a son of William and Mary. Andrew married a Martha MacKey or MacKay, no birth/death info about her. Then Charles B. Grant, 1790-1867, a son of Andrew and Martha. He married Mary "Polly" Morris, 1799-1880. Then their youngest son, Henry Burnett Grant, 1836-1882, is my great-grandfather. He married Elizabeth C. Morrison, 1835-1924. Elizabeth was apparently born in Virginia and moved with her parents to North Carolina when she was a girl. Henry and Elizabeth had a large family and my grandfather, Vance Monroe Grant, 1865-1899, was one of the younger ones. Vance and his older brother Randall Vaney Grant, moved to Madison County, Arkansas, in the 1880s. Vance married Effie Mashburn in Madison County and they had four children, 3 boys and a girl. My father was the middle boy. Vance died of severe pneumonia in the late winter of 1899 while Effie carried their youngest boy. My father, Hobart McKinley Grant, 1896-1960, moved with his mother and her second husband, and the other two boys, to Kansas about 1912. My father was born on election day, Nov. 4, 1896, and was given the names of the new vice-president and president. Dad was a Methodist minister and went to college at Kansas Wesleyan University, then to Boston University School of Theology, where he met my mother, a Canadian registered nurse, Allie Elizabeth Cameron, 1903-1991. We have the Cameron linage back at least four generations in Scotland. Bottom line, we need the DNA results to prove, one way or another, that we are Scottish Grants rather than English.

Kit 163670 – My lineage is:
Father was Thornton James Grant born in Buffalo NY
son of Harry P. Grant and Clara Stewart of Sacketts NY.  The records were lost in a Church fire.  It is estimated Harry Grant was born about 1886 Sacketts NY.  
However his parents died when he was quite young and he was sent to Buffalo to live.  Then prior to World War II, in order to work in the defense industry he had to prove citizenship.  Upon return to Sacketts, He learned of the fire.  He found someone who had known the family and they gave him a letter.  So I am trying to get past this hurdle.
I have tried every avenue that I could think of to trace back to a more distant relative on the Grant side.  That’s why a joined the DNA project.  I'm hoping to find a close enough match to get me to a area of Scotland where my Grant relatives came from. Through investigation I know that there a several possible areas.  Harry Grant was born about 1886.

Kit 46999 has traced his Grant forebears to: James Grant, born about 1850 and lived in Fearn, Ross-shire. He is looking into more deail, so will let you know if anything surfaces.

Kit 163789 can be traced back to his Grandfather carried out detailed research into our family history finding that our recent past is established definitely back to a Gregor Grant who was thought to have been the son of Patrick (McAlpine) Grant, 5th Laird of Rothiemurchus and his second wife Rachel Grant of Tullochgorum in about 1743. Gregor and his wife Margaret are thought to have lived in Blair Street, near the Tron Kirk. Gregor was a Merchant in the Old Kirk Parish but later, we are told, became a Kings Messenger for the Sheriff of Edinburgh. In a memorandum of a Great Uncle Colesworthey Grant published in Calcutta in 1881, page 2, “The Grants that came to Calcutta were connected with the Grant’s of Rothiemurchus” and on page 4, speaking of my GGGrandfather George Grant, a Watch, Clock, and Chronometer maker there, it says, “Sir John Grant (Rothiemurchus himself)”, another Judge of the Supreme Court, called on George shortly after Sir Edward Ryan’s first visit and said “Mr Grant, I find we are kinsmen, to which George respectfully nodded. This would have been Sir John Peter Grant. 8th Laird of Rothiemurchus and father of Elizabeth Grant of Rothiemurchus who wrote the “Memoirs of a Highland Lady” or her brother, Sir John Peter Grant, GCMG, KCB. 10th Laird.

It is understood that Rachell and Gregor left Strathspey after Patrick’s death in 1742 and went to Edinburgh.  Rachell lived with Gregor’s family after he died.  It is recorded in George’s memorandum that she was a stately old lady, dressed in black silk who walked with a long silver beaded stick and he remembered being taken when a child by his father to her funeral attended by an enormous number of mourners in 1806 and that she was over 100 years old when she died.  I have a record of a Mrs Grant that lived at 3 Society, Edinburgh who died on 22nd July 1806.  Her age, over 100 as stated by George in his memorandum and that George was taken to her funeral indicates that she was Rachell, Patrick’s wife and mother of Gregor.  I am looking for this to be confirmed.

  • Hector Grantborn 1855 Islay, Scotland died 1928 Glasgow

  • William Grantborn 1787, Kilbrandon and Kilchattan died 1827 Kilchoman, Islay, Scotland.
After this it gets a little difficult but I think his father was John Grant bornaround 1760. It appears the family worked in the Whisky industry in Islay butfrom a farming background. There may a connection to the small Islandof Easdale in Scotland with a John  Grant appearing in Church records. Iam fairly certain up to William of 1787 as I have DNA links to othermembers who share this route.

Kit 35466 - Here is my line:
  • great-grandfather was George Washington Grant.
  • Grandfather and great-grandfather was George Washington Grant.  Don't know if any suffixes are applicable, like Jr or . The first one was born in 1827 in Virginia and wound up in Griffin, Ga. which was Henry County until 1853 when Spalding County was formed, including Griffin. He married Ellen M. Kirkpatrick. The 1860 census shows them married and mother-in-law living with them, and each worth $50,000 and owning slaves! They apparently invested in Confederate bonds, though, because in 1870, their "worth" was down to $400, and mother-in-law was no longer around. I still have a silver serving spoon with Ellen's initials and a "memory" book, each page of which has a poem written and signed by some guy, all dated 1853. There's NOT one by Geo W Grant, so I've surmised that he was the first to refuse, and she grabbed him! He was 37 and she 18 when they married. I realize this is a lot more than "just the facts" of genealogy, but she's interesting as well because she aged only about 8 years between each census from 1850 to 1880 - it's a miracle!

My Grant heritage takes two tracks.  The first from my 2nd Great Grandfather Charles Gordon and my 6th Great Grandmother Countess of Fife, Jane Grant.  According to Ancestry.com, this Grant line than runs back to the first clan chief.   My 4th Great-Grandfather, William Gordon, married Janet Duff, daughter of the Countess of Fife Jane Grant.   This is found in the second attachment.
The second line (the first attachment), runs from my 3rd Great Grandfather, William Grant (Sr.), born in Inveresk, Midlothian Scotland in 1811.  Written records from the family indicate hewas born in Edinburgh.  The William Grant/Janet Duncan were found on FamilyTreeMaker and that family indicates a William born 1811.  We have yet to confirm this family connection and are searching for other relatives. William Grant was a military man enlisting U.S. Army in 1838, killed in 1864serving as a Captain in the Union Army.  He arrived in NY from Scotland in1834.  Notes also indicate while in Scotland, he served for a short time in a Highlander Regiment.  Many of the Grant's ended up in Iowa, notfar from US Grants home in Galena, Il.  There was a William Grant earlier in the same area and he may have been an Uncle.  Both my Grandfather William Grant and this second William Grant owned property in Clayton County (Millville) Iowa although different tracts.  The second was there in the l830's and was commissioned a Captain in the Illinois Militia.  
Three of William Grant's sons married threeGordon girls in Iowa before coming to the West Coast, settling in the Seattle, WA area.
The Grant men obviously had a fondness for Gordon girls on both lines through out history.

Kit 19996 traces back to "John Grant in Glenchernick" father of Peter Grant 'junior' a merchant who lived in Grantown (1774 - 1854). I would certainly be interested to hear from anyone (a) with a close DNA match and/or (b) who can show any link to this family - especially as it is unlikely that any records further back will show up. It would seem quite likely that John Grant's father was also Peter.

Kit 20976 can be traced back to Carroll Alonso Patterson (1880 Swain Co., NC - 1922 Swain Co., NC) & Hattie T. Grant (1879-1953).  Marvin R. Grant (b 1902 Swain Co., NC - d 1992 Cobb Co., GA) was born out of wedlock to Carroll Patterson.  Marvin R. had a son Garland S. Grant (1922 Union Co., GA - 2000 Alamance Co., NC).  His son, Marvin A. Grant ("Alan" b 1946 Cherokee Co., NC) was my father.

My ancestor William Grant had four sons who had offspring: Alexander, Andrew, Thomas and Charles. We've had two DNA tests from Andrew's lineage and one from Alexander's, none from Thomas and Charles, at least not yet. Surprisingly the DNA tests aren't a match, though Alexander and Andrew are proven brothers. There must be something wrong somewhere else in the lineage. I haven't figured it out yet. There was lots of illegitimacy in my Grant family, so I shouldn't be surprised about the non-match. However I don't know exactly where the break might be. The tests are kit # 31534 (Andrew's lineage), # 40927 (Andrew's lineage), and # 97440 (Alexander's).

Kit 28844 is tied to John Grant, supposedly born in 1817 or 1818. His son, Benjamin Franklin Grant was my great grandfather.

Kit 112611 earliest known ancestor was John of Shettleston, Scotland, who had son, James (1828-1883), a potato merchant; son William, a blacksmith of Grafton Square, Glasgow; and son Robert, who emigrated to Australia My great-grandfather was also a James Grant, who sired 13 children. Four died in infancy, but a son, John, eventually immigrated to Canada in 1910. Sons William and James died in 1863. A later son, James (1872-1954), was a gents clothier and then Robert, (1877-1943) was a butcher, Thomas (1879-1951) was a wholesale grocer, and Andrew (1879 - ?) went to Canada. John, who went to Canada, and his wife, Helen Stewart, had six children. My grandfather was William Grant (1864-19380. And, my father was Archibald Montgomerie Grant (1900-1972). His brothers were William Montgomerie Grant (1903-1975) and James (Jim) Montgomerie Grant (1910-1990), all of Hamilton, Lanarkshire, Scotland. I am trying to find connections earlier than 1829 and where in Highlands of Scotland our line originated and its connection within Clan Grant.

Kit 83161 is tied to Donald Grant born 1735 -1759 Married to Marjorie "May" Falconer married 1774 Children Alexander 1781 died 8 Oct 1862 in Tomnahurich Bridge Scotland ( was the start of my line) he married Ms Ann "Nanny" Mc Kinnon born Inverness Scotland married 2 Dec 1804 died 1855; Donald born 6 March 1775 in Dalcross Scotland : William born 5 Oct 1777 ; Ms Margory Grant born 10 Aug1791; Sister: Duncan Born 1795. William Grant was an Inverness man, who migrated to Stornoway, Scotland and settle in the area long before marrying Johanna Morison in 1906.  In 1917, he founded the Stornoway Gazette.  Three of their six sons became prominent figures in the newspaper world in the Highlands.  Johanna was the youngest daughter of Roderick Morison, a retired ship's captain.  Johanna had a brother by the same name as her dad, who became a minister of the Stornway High Church.  William Grant died in 1932 at the age of 59.

My father, Duncan, was born in Clachan, North Uist - 9 Apr 1893. Married Isabella Duncan Jessiman in Capetown on 10 June 1929.  His father was also Duncan, born in Duthil IV 20 Feb 1855. Married to Marion MacRea in Dornie Kintail 22 June 1880. They had five children two of whom settled in the USA another remained in Dornie, another who died at age 16, and my Dad who left the Scotland he loved and settled in Southern Rhodesia, doing a stint in Northern Rhodesia where his two sons were born. In 1938 he was transferred to Umtali (now Mutare) where he dies in 1982, followed two months later by his wife two months later. I have tried to delve back into the history of the family and thought I had unearthed Duncan's family but it proved incorrect.

Kit 30840 My family is from Connecticut and Massachusetts, my grandfather is Clarence E Grant b.5/23/1910, d. 12/11/96 who was a retired machinist at Draper Corp in Hopedale. He was married to Edna M Tiffany and had three brothers, Joseph H, William E, Aaron V and a sister Cecilia Winifred. I am definitely related to John Marsh of Salem (now Peabody) who was aboard the Mary & John 3/27/1633. Clarence’s parents were Joseph J Grant and Susan Marsh (b.9/1887 m. Milford). Susan Marsh related to my father that her mother was Eleanor Cain b. 5/1851 NB, m. 17/6/1870, d. 3/8 1925 Hopedale, who was a Native American from Petitcodiac NB. She married George-Albert Marsh b. 22/4/1848 W. Peabody, m. 17/6/1870, d. 4/8/14 Chelsea Soldiers Home. Their children were George-Walter Jr., Florence L, Mary A, Aaron C, Sidney F, Nellie, Susan, John A, Sara A. Both my grandparents visited Petitcodiac in the ‘70s and found Eleanor’s relatives’ graves. It is now Ft. Folly First Nations. On my grandfather Clarence E side of the family his father was John Grant of Edinborough. He married Bridget Bird of Ireland and they had Joseph J, Frank, Harry, Bill, Winifred, Nellie, and Emma. That is the last record of the Grant clan. I would appreciate any further information and contacts.

Kit 21365 is tied to William Grant, born 1642/1643, in St. Nicholas at Wade on the Isle of Thanet, Kent, England (near Canterbury). Father of William Grant is John Grant, born about 1610. Birthdates, marriages, and other records in IGI coincide with Grants living in the same region back to early 16th century and into the 15th century. Probable ties to the family of a Henry Grant and son Laurence Grant in the Eyethorne region about 1510, and 1540 respectively. The DNA signature of this line has a strong Scandinavian influence from Western and Northern Norway with no exact matches in the FTDNA database and the closest matches being in Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Isle of Man, Shetland Islands and Scotland and derives from a Central Asian population near the Siberian Altai region. It is believed at this time that this line, of haplogroup R1a1, belongs to the original Norse line of the Grants. Kit owner is especially interested in any participants who can document their line from either Matthew Grant (Windsor, Connecticut and ancestor of Ulysses S. Grant) and/or Ulysses S. Grant.
