Kit N3983 is the descendant of Sylvanus Allen.

  • Richard John Allen - Living.

  • Ward Allen, b 26 Aug 1912, Kalamazoo Co. Michigan near Climax on family farm. d 04 April 1999, Lenawee Co. Michigan, Adrian. (Father).

  • George Green Allen, b 17 Aug 1875, Kalamazoo Co. Michigan near Schoolcraft on Family Farm. d April 1942, Kalamazoo Co. Michigan near Climax on family farm. (Grandfather).

  • Lewis Clark Allen, b 26 March 1846, Ellery Twp, Chautauqua Co., New York, d 10 Jan 1915, Kalamazoo Co. Michigan near Schoolcraft on family farm. (Gr. Grandfather).

  • Sylvanus Allen, b 06 May 1823, Canada East (Quebec)?, d 10 Oct 1865, Kalamazoo Co. Michigan, near Schoolcraft on family farm. ( Gr. Gr. Grandfather).  Sylvanus Allen is my brick wall.

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

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

There is a strong possibility that my line of Allen's branched off before George Allen was born (1585), and went to Scotland. This would mean, George Allen 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 and married into a strong scottish family, thus the tradition we are of Scottish descent.

Kit 7215 is tied to John Francis Grant the son of Effingham Howard Grant/Jane Harrison married Jan. 28, 1808 at St. Marylebone, Saint Mary-St. Marylebone Road, London, England. John was born in 1821 and after marrying Maria Woodhams, in 1849 immigrated to NY/Michigan in 1855. His brothers/sisters stayed 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 of the last of the Grants of Carron that are mentioned in Sir William Fraser's book, Chiefs of Grant, written in 1883. The Effingham mentioned there left Edinburgh (Abbey of Holyrood House) in 1790, apparently penniless when his father, James Grant of Carron, died deeply in debt. Trying to make a connection there or get any further information on EHG.

Kit 7215: born August 29, 1942, San Antonio, TX
     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 DNA evidence, it appears that I am a Gordon and not a Grant. Using the Y-DNA67 results, I am 2 or 3 steps away from four Gordons and nowhere is there a Grant lurking in 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 DNA with my DNA. If we are descended from the same Grant (Gordon), it would establish that I am from the offspring of Captain James Grant of Carron. Again based on the DNA the Gordon/Grant liaison occurred in the early 1700s or even in the 1600s if we consider the number of steps I am removed from the “true” Gordons.

Kit 10391 - My Mother was Naomi Grant who was the daughter of Neville Carroll Grant who lived on Wesser Creek in Swain County NC. I can trace my Grant line back to Wilkie Grant who married Mary Ann Totherow.

N17253 – descends from John H (Jack) Grant.  Below is his lineage:

§  Self - Living

§  Father - Living

§  Grandfather: Oliver J Grant b. 5 Apr 1888 Alabama m. Alvina Sogaard abt. 1923, b. 10 Apr 1900 Kindred, ND

§  G-Grandfather: John W Grant b. 10 Jun 1847 or 1849 Columbus, GA, d. 27 Feb 1927 Alabama City, Etowah, AL m. Nancy Ann Malinda Jemima Guy 23 Dec 1875 Coosa Cty, AL, b. 19 May 1956 Alabama d. 24 Sep 1944 Harton, Blount Cty, AL

§  G-G-Grandfather: Samuel Manes Grant b. 13 Jan 1818 d. 1866 m. Dorcas Meadows b. 26 Nov 1824

§  G-G-G-Grandfather: John H (Jack) Grant m. Malinda Forrester

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 21340 - is tied to Joshua Grant of Shapleigh and Dearborn, Maine (born circa 1760). Results now confirm that this kit is tied to the line of Peter Grant (born 1631) who was exiled by Oliver Cromwell following the Battle of Dunbar.

  • Jon Patrick Grant (Me) - born 1965 in Newton, Harvey County, Kansas - living (OK TO PUBLISH)

  • Father - living

  • John Howard Grant - born 1917 in Newton, Harvey County, Kansas - death 1992 in Newton, Harvey County, Kansas (only child of Clifford that had children)

  • Clifford Leroy Grant - born 1894 in Newton, Harvey County, Kansas - death 1970 in Newton, Harvey County, Kansas (only child of John Quincy, Jr)

  • John Quincy Grant, Jr - born 1872 in Sedalia, Pettis County, Missouri - death 1957 in Newton, Harvey County, Kansas

  • John Quincy Grant - born 1852 in Washington County, Ohio - death 1922 in Tulsa, Oklahoma (buried in Newton, Harvey County, Kansas)

  • Greenwood Childs Grant - born 1813 in Dearborn, Somerset County, Maine - death 1893 in Newton, Harvey County, Kansas

  • Samuel Grant - born 1784 in NH/Maine - death ca 1869 in Washington County, Ohio

  • Joshua Grant - born ca 1760-1765 - death 1840 in Dearborn, Somerset County, Maine

  • Brick Wall

  • Peter Grant - born ca 1631 in Inverness, Scotland - Exiled by Oliver Cromwell - Indentured to the Saugus Iron Works

Kit 21344 is tied to Thomas Grant of Maury/Marshall County, TN, who was born circa 1778. We do not know anything about him prior to 1815. Family stories suggest he was indentured for seven years and that was how he obtained passage to N. America. The stories suggest he came from Scotland and his wife, Sarah Glover, came from N. Ireland. However, these references could have pertained to their parents. I have exhausted all descendent lines except for one. I am currently seeking any descendents of Thomas' son, John Grant, who was born about 1805 and married Martha (Mary) Shannon, January 1, 1840 in Marshall County, 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 to 1860. They had two sons, David and Jackson. If I can find a male descendent of either, perhaps I can obtain a lead on old Thomas' parents or origin.  My lineage top down is a follows:  Thomas Grant, James Davis Grant, James Polk Grant, Stephen Allen Grant, and to me.

Below is his lineage down to the kit#:

§  Kit 21344 is the son of  Stephen Allen Grant, b 09 Apr 1903 Robertson County TX, d 30 Apr 1970 Houston Harris County TX, m Dorothy Estelle Dunlap b 19 Sep 1910 Trout LaSalle Parish LA, d 26 Jul 1991 Houston Harris County TX

§  Son of  James Polk Grant b 05 Dec 1855 Robertson County TX, d 04 Mar 1919, m Carrie Elizabeth Perkins b 03 Nov 1865 Cuthbert (Randolph County GA, d 26 Aug 1935 Houston Harris County, TX

§  Son of  James Davis Grant b 06 Jan 1838 Maury County TN, d 10 Jan 1892 Robertson County  TN, m Sarah Elizabeth Talley b 19 Feb 1825 Tennessee, d 04 Jan 1865 Robertson County TX

§  Son of  Thomas Grant b 1778 Scotland, who can only be traced back to 1815, in a Maury County Court TN document.; d 1838 Marshall County TN, m Sarah Glover b 1784 Northern Ireland, d 07 Jan 1860 Robertson County, TN

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.

Kit 21401 is tied to Stephen Grant of Maine (born circa 1750). Results now confirm that this kit is tied to the line of Peter Grant (born 1631) who was exiled by Oliver Cromwell following the Battle of Dunbar.

Kit 21651 is tied to Nathaniel Berry Grant, 1844, AL. I am 99% sure he is the son of Larkin M. Grant, 1817, GA going on back to Daniel Grant of VA.

Kit 21840 is a descendant of John Grant of Long Island, New York. 

I.    1783 John Grant Of Long Island, New York, His Wife Elizabeth (        ) (Grant) Cronkhite, And His Descendants
A summary of what is known of John Grant is as follows.  He married Elizabeth          and they had the following children:
     1)    Peter Grant, born in about 1771 or 1772 in New York,
     2)    William Grant, born in about 1774,
     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] and sometimes as 1783 John Grant.
     A.    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 descendants of 1783 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 at the Grant DNA Project at: https://www.familytreedna.com/public/GRANT?iframe=yresults.
Kit No. 21840 is that of this author, a descendant of 1783 John Grant of Long Island, New York, through his son 1847 William Grant of Carleton County, New Brunswick.
Kit No. 82582 is that of Jason Grant, a descendant of 1783 John Grant of Long Island, New York, through his son 1847 William Grant of Carleton County, New Brunswick.
Kit No. 24708 is that of James Grant, Lord Strathspey, the current Clan Chief.
The differences in the sequences indicate that the common male Grant ancestor of these three kits was born approximately 250 to 425 years previously, or in the period from about 1575 to 1750.
 Further sequencing through the "Big Y" project of single nucleotide polymorphisms ("SNPs") indicates that the common ancestor for these three kits was John Grant, the "Red Bard" and the 2nd Laird of Freuchie, who was born in 1468 and died in 1528.  Additional analysis is currently being undertaken to determine whether the author's line descends from John "Red Bard" Grant's first son James Grant, the 3rd Laird of Freuchie, or his second legitimate son, John Grant of Corrimony, or his third and illegitimate son, John Grant of Glenmoriston.
     B.    Residence Of 1783 John Grant Prior To Enlistment In The King's American Regiment
As more fully set forth below, the research and analysis of Susan G. Grant has established 1783 John Grant of Long Island, New York, as the husband of Widow Grant of the King's American Regiment and who, as such widow, received a grant of land in the Canterbury Tract, New Brunswick, Canada, by reason of her husband's service in the Revolutionary War. 
However, it has not been established where 1783 John Grant resided before his enlistment in the King's American Regiment.  A review of the regimental history and the officers and men of that regiment offers clues as to that residence.
Hope Restored by Robert L. Dallison gave the following summary of the King's American Regiment:
"On December 11, 1776, Sir William Howe issued a warrant to Colonel Edmund Fanning to raise a 500 man battalion of Provincials.
. . . .
To Assist in raising his regiment, Fanning received financial support of L3,000 from Loyalist subscribers in New York City, Staten Island, King's County, and the town of Jamaica on Long Island.  Within a week, he had established his headquarters at Flat Bush on Long Island, had selected James Grant, an experienced and respected officer, as his major, and was forming the first two companies. . . . . In April, 1777, the unit, quartered at Jamaica on Long Island and consisting of six companies, received the title of King's American Regiment.  In May, 177, Fanning's troops were placed on operational status and employed as part of the New York garrison.  A month later they were stationed at the strategically important Kingsbridge at the north end of Manhattan Island, under the command of Tryon.  In July, 1777, the King's American Regiment had a strength of thirty sergeants, ten drummers, and 420 rank and file, and Inspector General Innes reported that it was in a "very excellent state." 
The King's American Regiment remained on active4 service throughout the war and was widely recognized as an efficient and effective corps.  It was involved in a number of incursions into the Hudson River Valley and played a supporting role in the assaults on Forts Montgomery and Clinton.  Fanning's unit reinforced the Rhode Island garrison during a combined French and rebel invasion and fought with courage at the siege of Newport and the battle of Quaker Hill.  They accompanied Tryon  on his raid along the Connecticut coast, landing at New Haven, Fairfield, and Norwalk and participated in General Leslie's expedition to Virginia.  Sent to South Carolina, they garrisoned Georgetown and fought the rebels led by Francis Marion and Lieutenant-Colonel "Light Horse" henry Lee.  They reinforced the garrison at Camden and fought at the battle of Hobkirk's Hill; Francis Lord Rawdon commended them for behaving superbly under fire, despite suffering forty-three casualties.  After evacuating Camden and withdrawing back to Charleston, the King's American Regiment was sent to reinforce the British forces in Georgia, where they became part of the Savannah garrison and participated in the struggle to maintain control of the neighbouring districts.  The regiment returned to Charleston before sailing to New York.  In recognition of their service, they were placed on the American establishment as the 4th American Regiment and later placed on the British establishment.  This official recognition enhanced the regiment's prestige, but more importantly, it ensured that the commissioned officers would receive half pay following the termination of hostilities.
A return, dated September, 1783, shows that twenty officers, 128 men, thirty-five women, eighty children, and sixteen servants embarked for the St. John River Valley, while seven other people were already in Nova Scotia.  The regiment was disbanded on October 24, 1783, and allocated block six in the parish of Canterbury.  Many of the regiment travelled up the St. John River at once and spent a wretched winter at Ste. Anne's Point (now called Fredericton).  Not until the following spring did these ex-soldiers reach their land grants in Canterbury.  A total of some 3000 people associated with the regiment settled in the area, including a group led by Captain Isaac Attwood, that established a community called "Bel-viso," forty miles above Fredericton. . . . ."
As set forth above, the Colonel of the King's American Regiment was Edmund Fanning and the Major of the Regiment was James Grant.  In addition, the Captain of the Company in which John Grant served was Peter Clements.
Hope Restored by Robert Dallison stated as follows with regard to Edmund Fanning:
". . . . Fanning was born on Long Island, New York in 1739, and studied law at Yale before moving to Hillsborough, North Carolina, where he was called to the bar.  Noted for his polished manners, obvious intelligence and political cunning, Fanning became one of Governor William Tryon's most trusted representatives.  he was deeply involved in frustrating the demands of the poor backcountry settlers of North Carolina, known as the "Regulators," which earned him their hatred.  When Tryon was appointed governor of New York, Fanning followed him there.  On the outbreak of the rebellion, Tryon was appointed major-general and commander-in-chief of the Provincial Forces in America.  Fanning received his warrant with Tryon's patronage.
. . . .
Fanning was appointed lieutenant-governor of Nova Scotia in 1783 and Lieutenant-governor of Prince Edward island in 1787"
The National Cyclopedia Of American Biography, Volume V, dated 1894 listed the following for Colonel Edmund Fanning: 
"Fanning, Edmund, loyalist, was born on Long Island, N. Y., in 1737, son of Phineas Fanning. . . . He then adopted law as a profession, and removed to Hillsborough (then called Childsborough), N.C., where he quickly acquired celebrity. . . . became wealthy by a system of extortion . . . . and irritated the people still further by his persecution of the "Regulators," or "Sons of Liberty," and by his supercilious manner. . . . The "Regulators" in March, 1771, dragged him from the court-house, and beat him severely, and then tore down his house.  His life being no longer safe, he accompanied Gov. Tryon (whose daughter he is said to have married) to New York, and acted as his private secretary. . . . In 1775 his house was attacked, and he was forced to take refuge on the sloop of war Asia.  In 1776 Lord Howe gave him a colonel's commission, and in 1777 he raised a force of 460 men, know as "The king's American regiment of foot," also as the "Associated loyalists." . . . ."
These two records indicate that 1783 John Grant may have resided in Long Island, New York, where Colonel Edmund Fanning was born and from where he may have drawn recruits for his regiment.
A History Of Clan Grant by James Grant, Lord Strathspey, included a family tree prepared by Admiral John Grant which listed James Grant of the 87th Highlanders and the King's American Regiment as a cadet branch of the Clan Grant descending from among others Duncan Grant of Gartenbeg and related to the Grants of Dalvey.  A History Of Clan Grant further stated that:
"After re-joining the Black Watch for a period, James was, on 26 April 1762, commissioned adjutant of the 87th Regiment, or 'Murray Keith's Highlanders'.  He married Penuel Grant in 1763, . . . .
In 1774 James Grant and his wife decided to emigrate to America with their six children.  They bought, or rented, a farm from a Colonel Abraham Ten Broek of Albany. . . . . leaving his wife and family on the farm in the care of the Ten Broeks, James was first assigned to the royal Navy (in place of a wounded officer), who were engaged in the forcing of the Hudson river passage.  However, he was eventually appointed as adjutant of the King's American Regiment, a locally-raised formation under the command of a lawyer from the south, with good connections, named Edmund Fanning."
Since 1783 John Grant of the King's American Regiment and Major James Grant of the King's American Regiment were both descendants of one of the Chiefs of the Clan Grant, 1783 John Grant of Long Island, New York, and Major James Grant were kinsmen, although distant kinsmen.
An obituary for Major James Grant's widow Penuel (Grant) Grant was published in the Gentleman's Magazine 1824 and provided as follows:
"Feb.  At Paddington, aged 80, Penuel, relict of the deceased James Grant, Esquire of Linchurn (clan Duncan), Major in the King's American Regiment, daughter to the late Alexander Grant Esquire of Aucherblaire (clan Allen) and grand daughter to Grant of Ling all of Strathspey, N.B. . . . . Mrs. Grant, having an infant family accompanied her husband from the Highlands of Scotland to America, where, previous to the rupture with our colonies, he purchased land, and settled in Albany County; from whence, on the breaking out of the war, Major Grant . . . . joined the British standard, leaving his wife and children without the lines: . . . . on hearing her two elder boys were commissioned in the English army, from regard to their safety, the mother was impelled to escape in disguise. . . . .
July 1782, after an honourable and distinguished service . . . . while campaigning in Savannah, Major Grant lost his life, leaving a beloved widow and eight orphans; the eldest child a youth of about sixteen; the youngest, a posthumous boy born six hours after his father=s death.  On the peace of 1782, the two elder sons, Lieutenants Alexander and Joseph . . . . at Guadeloupe, . . . . whilst attacking the enemy, both brothers were killed
. . . .
A third son, Lieutenant James Lauchlan Grant, lost his life in an engagement
 . . . . 1802. . . .@
Wikipedia stated in part with regard to Abraham Ten Broeck that:
". . . .
Ten Broeck increased his wealth via trade while in Albany. During the 1750s, he was involved in the provincial militia.  In 1759, he was elected to the city council and in 1760, he was elected to the Province of New York Assembly while continuing to serve Albany.  In November[3] 1763, he married Elizabeth Van Rensselaer, a sister of patroon Stephen Van Rensselaer II and great granddaughter of the first native born mayor of New York City, Stephanus Van Cortlandt.  By the mid 1760s, Ten Broeck was one of Albany's wealthiest men.  In 1769, his brother in law died at age 27 and Ten Broeck was named co administrator of the Manor of Rensselaerswyck, a position he held until 1784 when his nephew, Stephen Van Rensselaer III, came of age.
. . . ."
These records indicate that 1783 John Grant may have resided in Albany County, New York, to which his kinsman Major James Grant emigrated in 1774 and where Major Grant owned or rented land which was probably part of the Manor of  Rensselaerswyck.
Collection Of The New Brunswick Historical Society, Volume 1, dated 1894, listed the following for Captain Peter Clement: 
"Ensign Obediah Clements was the eldest son of Captain Peter Clements, a Loyalist officer, and was born on the banks of the Hudson River, New York.  The Clements family was one of the old Dutch families that settled on the Hudson in early colonial times - and who furnished many brave soldiers to the royal cause - the names was originally spelled Clemens.  . . . . When the rebellion assumed formidable proportions, . . . . Captain Clements, whose home and possessions were within the rebel lines, collected one hundred loyal men, and led them over the Catskill Hills, down to New York, where Lord Cornwallis gave him a captain's commission and his company was incorporated into the King's American Regiment, a famous New York loyal corps, commanded by Edmund Fanning.  The descendants of some of that band of Loyalists are now numerous and respectable in New Brunswick.  The regiment was actively engaged in many battles around New York, and formed part of the expedition under Sir Henry Clinton, that sailed from Sandy Hook at the close of 1779 for the Southern Provinces, and assisted in the capture of Charleston, South Carolina, and also shared in the triumphs and disasters that followed in the Carolinas. . . . ."
The Loyalist Collection of the Harriet Irving Library, at the University of New Brunswick, Canada, available online at https://loyalist.lib.unb.ca, listed the following biography of Peter Clements as background to the Clements Family Papers, microfilm copies of which are held in the Library:
"Peter Clements (1739 1832), a Loyalist, was born at Cortlandt Manor near Yorktown, New York, and served as a captain in the King's American Regiment during the American Revolution. He received a town lot in Parrtown (Saint John) in 1784, but did not settle there, and later a lot in Fredericton. However, eventually he settled in Douglas Parish, York County, and built a house which he called "Claremont." He married Abigail Palmer (1749 1834) and they had three sons and four daughters. His children married into the following families: Bedell, Bradley, Hatheway, Morehouse, Brickendon, Allen, and Hubbard. Peter served as a magistrate for York County and received a captain's half pay as a former officer of a British regiment."
Cortlandt Manor is located in Westchester County, New York.
These records indicate that 1783 John Grant may have resided in Cortlandt Manor and Westchester County, New York, where Peter Clements lived and probably found his 100 recruits for his Loyalist company.
Henry Cronkhite was the second husband of Elizabeth (        ) (Grant) Cronkhite.  The Historic Present by Ruth (Grant) Grant stated that Henry Cronkhite was also known as Hendrick Krankheyt, the son of Jacoubs Krankheyt and Margaretha Busch, and was baptized in the New York Lutheran Church, Poughquag, Dutchess County, New York. 
The Diary Of Henry Nase, King's American Regiment, transcribed by Todd Braisted and available from the Archives Division of The New Brunswick Museum, covers the period from December 1776 and his enlistment in the King's American Regiment on April 10, 1777, through January 29, 1784.  In "Loyalist Trails" UELAC Newsletter 2012-28 dated July 15, 2012, Stephen Davidson stated that Henry Nase was a native of Dover, New York, a town in Dutchess County, New York, which is east of the Hudson River and adjacent to the border with Massachusetts.
The Kingston Branch of the United Empire Loyalist Association posted a presentation on Benjamin Ingraham by Earle and Faith Thomas and published in the Cataraqui Loyalist Town Crier in March 1994 and available at
http://www.uelac.org/Kingston/nonK_stories.html.
That presentation stated that Benjamin Ingraham resided in New Concord, New York, which was then part of Albany County east of the Hudson River and is now part of Columbia County.
These records indicate that 1783 John Grant may have resided in Dutchess or Albany County, east of the Hudson River.
Further research will be required to determine in which of these locations 1783 John Grant resided before his enlistment in the King's American Regiment.
     C.    War And Post-War Records For 1783 John Wright And His Family
A number or records relating to 1783 John Wright of Long Island, New York, his wife Elizabeth (        ) (Grant) Cronkhite, and their children have been found for the period during the Revolutionary War and after.
In her email dated March 23, 2009, Mary McCutcheon enclosed a listing of Muster Rolls for Captain Clements Company of the King's American Regiment prepared by James Geens which listed the following for Private John Grant:

On August 23, 1783, a Muster Roll of the King's American Regiment, Captain Isaac Atwood's Company, listed the following:

This listing was available online at http://www.beaglz.com/english/Muster Rolls/MRoll-KAR-Atwood.htm.  The listing of William Grant in Captain Attwood's Company raised the possibility that he was the husband of the Widow Grant rather than John Grant.
In her email dated July 29, 2011, Susan G. Grant enclosed a copy of the death record of John Grant from the Muster Roll of the King's American Regiment dated September 2, 1783:

In about early 1784 a list of the non-commissioned officers and privates of the King's American Regiment was prepared which included the following members:
"A List of the Non Commission Officers and Private Men of the late K's Am. Regt. in Nova Scotia
No.    Mens Named
. . . .
4    Hendrick Cronk
. . . .
61    William Grant
. . . .
100    Widow Grant
. . . ."
This list was available online at http://www.beaglz.com/english/KAR-LandPetitions-1784.htm.  The listing of both William Grant and Widow Grant makes clear that William Grant was not the husband of Widow Grant and confirms that John Grant, who died on August 31, 1783, in Long Island, New York, was the husband of Widow Grant.
Sometime prior to September 14, 1784, the Widow Grant joined in a petition of the non-commissioned officers and privates of the lately disbanded British American Corps for protection of the two acre lots they had improved and settled on at St. Ann's Point (now Fredericton):

"To the Honorable Edmund Fanning Esqr. Colonel of His Majestys late Kings American Regiment of Foot, Lieut. Governor of His Majesty's Prince of Nova Scotia, with its dependencies etc., etc., etc.
The Memorial of the Non Commissd. Officers and private Men of the late disbanded British American Corps.
Most humbly sheweth,
That your Memorialists were directed by Colonel Hewlett, last Autumn, to settle at St. Ann's point, and were also assured by their Officers, they were to hold the Lotts, survey'd for them on their Arrival at the Point; consisting of two Acres each - In consequence of which direction from Col. Hewlett, and assurance from their Officers, they built themselves such houses as their Circumstances, together with the Advanced Season of the year would admit of; and employed themselves last Winter, and this Summer in improving the Land round their respective Houses.
That your Memorialists are under the greatest apprehensions of being turned off the Lands they have improved with so much Labor & Industry, by Gentlemen that have Orders of Survey from his Excellency the Governor, which would reduce them to the most Mortifying & distressful situations, as the major part of your Honor's Memorialists have large Families, and know not where His Majesty's Royal County of Lands (intended for them) will fall.
That your honor's Memorialists sensible that nothing lays nearer your heart than an ardent desire of settling this Infant Colony, so as to render all it's Inhabitants compleatly happy, are emboldened to trouble you with this state of their Grievances; Humbly praying you will be pleased to give such Orders for securing to your Memorialists' their improved Lands as to your honor in your Wisdom shall seem most meet, and Your Honor's Memorialists' as in Duty Bound will ever pray

In her letter dated March 29, 1984, Ruth (Grant) Grant enclosed a copy of the approval of the grant of two acres of land to the veterans of the British American Corps dated September 23, 1784:
"List of the Non-Commissioned Officers and Privates of the late disbanded British American Corps

In her letter dated March 29, 1984, Ruth (Grant) Grant also enclosed a copy of a muster roll of the settlers on Block 4 and part of Block 5 at Belviso on August 5, 1785:
"Return of Settlers on Block No. 4 Assigned to The King's American late Regiment of foot including also the Setlers on the upper part of Block No. 5 Assigned to the Queen's Rangers - Belviso 5th August 1785

These two records indicate that Widow Grant had married Henry Cronkhite sometime between September 23, 1784, and August 5, 1785.
In her letter dated December 8, 1983, Ruth (Grant) Grant enclosed a return of settlers on Block No. 4 dated June 7th 1786:
"Return of Settlers on Block No. 4 as now Survey'd by Mr Allan 7th June 1786.

Widow    Grant              12 )        Present, now married  K.A.R.
. . . ."
The bracketing of the two lots occurred only for Lots 11 and 12 and indicates that it was Henry Cronkhite who Widow Grant had married.
On February 5, 1787, Henry Cronkhite petitioned for recovery of the two acre lot granted to Widow Grant, but since their marriage, taken over by Captain McKay of the Queen's Rangers, a copy of which is available from the Public Archives of New Brunswick:
"Gentlemen Trustees,
The memorial of Henry Cronkhite, late of the King's American Regiment,
Humbly Sheweth,
That your Memorialist married the widow of the aforesaid Regiment who came to this country in October /83 with 5 small and fatherless children, and the inclemency of the weather at that period made it absolutely necessary to prepare a shelter for the approaching winter, which could not be procured at that place without the expense of making it.  She therefore, by the advice of Captain Clements, whose Company she belonged to and whose wishes may be asked on these occasions, built a house in the township of Fredericktown and made some considerable improvements, which she was led to hope would be some advantage to her children.  But it has, since I married and moved her, been taken possession of by Captain McKay, late of the Queen's Rangers, without either purchasing or making any restitution.  This circumstance induces your Memorialist to ope that the Gentlemen Trustees will see the propriety and justice of this claim and humbly begs leave to solicit the goodness of the Gentlemen to take this case into consideration, and grant that the children may hold the lands in consequence of the house.
And your Memorialist as in duty
bound, will Pray,
Henry Cronkhite
Woodstock, 5 February 1787."
On August 22, 1787, Thomas Carleton, as Lieutenant Governor of the Province, granted land to the veterans of the Revolutionary War, including Lot #12 to Widow Grant and Lot #11 to Henry Cronkhite:
"New Brunswick

In her letter dated December 8, 1983, Ruth (Grant) Grant enclosed the following transcription of the record of baptisms by Rev. John Davis Beardsley:
"Excerpts from the Record Book of the Anglican Parish of Maugerville made by Rev. John Davis Beardsley on a trip up the St. John River in July - August 1789.
. . . .
August 4th
. . . .
Bapt
Finley Grant
Lawrance Grant
Henry Cronkhite
 Abraham Cronkhite
Mary Cronkhite
. . . ."
The Grant Connexion by Ruth (Grant) Grant stated that:
"In 1789 when Rev. John Beardsley of Maugerville visited Lr. Woodstock and Northampton, among the list of those baptized on August 4 were two Grant sons, Finley and Laurence, along with the three Cronkhite children, Henry Jr., Abraham, and Mary.  The parents' names are not mentioned here.
In 1791, Parson Frederick Dibblee was sent to minister to the new settlers of this area by the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel.  When recording baptisms of children, he also included birth dates, and names of parents.  Therefore, when Simon and Jabez Cronkhite were baptized on May 12, 1793, the parents' names were recorded as henry and Elizabeth Cronkhite.
It was therefore not until 1793 that the Widow Grant's first name is found in any of the various references to her.
The youngest child (Reuben) was baptized in 1797, only as "the son of Mr. Cronkhite," and he was probably born about 1795.  Elizabeth may have died about that time as there is no further mention of her"
The Historic Present by Ruth (Grant) Grant stated that Elizabeth (        ) (Grant) Cronkhite died on July 29, 1815:
". . . .
Recorded in the Anglican Register:  "Mrs. Cronkhite, Sr., died July 29, 1815."
. . . ."
This listing was made in the chronological listings under the year 1819 rather than 1815.  Ruth (Grant) Grant also noted that the death was nine days before Henry Cronkhite, Sr., wrote his will, set forth below.
The will of Henry Cronkhite was dated on August 7, 1815, and probated on May 2, 1823, at York County, New Brunswick, W.B. 20/533, and provided in part as follows:
"In the name of God, Amen.
I, Henry Cronkhite of Northampton, in the County of York, and the Province of New Brunswick, Yeoman, . . . . do make, ordain, and constitute this my last Will and Testament, . . . .to my son Reuben Cronkhite the Homestead, . . . . the remainder of my property of all descriptions, both real and personal, both real and personal, to be equally divided to my children hereafter named -- that is to say, Henry Cronkhite, Abraham Cronkhite, Simon Cronkhite, Jabez Cronkhite, John Grant, and my daughter Mary Masten. . . . .
In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and seal the seventh day of August, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and fifteen.

Henry Cronkhite
. . . .
York:  Be it remembered that on the second day of May in the year of our Lord, one thousand eight hundred and twenty-three,  personally came and appeared before me, Samuel Denny Street Esq., Surrogate for the County of York, Abraham Cronkhite and Jeremiah Mastin, the Executors named in the foregoing Will of Henry Cronkhite, late of the Parish of Northampton, in the County aforesaid, deceased, and were sworn to the authenticity of the said Will, . . . .
Registered the 11th November 1835"
Peter Grant was probably the oldest son of 1783 John Grant and Elizabeth (        ) (Grant) Cronkhite.  The Grant Connexion included the following certificates for Peter Grant's service in the British navy:
"#1
These are to certify that Peter Grant has served as Ordinary Seaman on board of His Majesty's Ship Princess of Orange from the 7th day of July 1803 to the 7th day of February 1806.
Peter Grant is 5 Feet 10-1/2 Inches high, of a sallow complexion, and aged 32 years.
Thos. Rogers, Captain
#2
. . . . Dated the 13th day of January 1809.
Peter Grant is 5 feet 10 3/4 Inches high, is of a dark complexion, and aged 37 years.
Robert Campbell, Captain"
These certificates indicate that Peter Grant was born in about 1772 or 1774.
The Grant Connexion also included a transcription of Land Petition No. 525 by Peter Grant dated August 19, 1847, which provided in part as follows:
"No. 525:  The Petition of Peter Grant, Late a Carpenter in H. M. Navy;
. . . .
Laid before Council August 19 1847:
. . . .
The Memorial of Peter Grant, a native of New York State when a British Province, which he left with his widowed mother for this Province at the close of the Revolutionary War,
Humbly Sheweth,
That your Memorialist's Father served throughout the War of the Revolution, and died at the close, that your Memorialist, after living 20 years in this Province, entered the British Navy in which he served for forty years, . . . ."
The Grant Connexion also stated that:
"Peter Grant's obituary appeared in the April 20, 1852, issue of the Carleton Sentinel.  He died January 27, 1852, in his 80th year."
These three sets of records indicate that Peter Grant was the son of Widow Grant of the King's American Regiment and thus the son of 1783 John Grant and was born in New York in about 1772 or perhaps 1774, thus placing 1783 John Grant of Long Island, New York, and his wife Elizabeth (        ) (Grant) Cronkhite in New York in approximately 1772.
The Historic Present by Ruth (Grant) Grant repeatedly referred to Elizabeth (        ) (Grant) Cronkhite as Elizabeth (Lockwood) (Grant) Cronkhite.  However, no source reference or explanation was given for the identification of her maiden name as Lockwood.  Her maiden name remains uncertain at this time.

Kit 22101 is the great-great-grandson of James Grant, born in Cromdale, Scotland, to a Donald Grant and Catherine in 1807.  He died in Dassel, Meeker County, MN in 1896.  He married twice.  His first wife, Elizabeth McMillen, died in 1845.  He married again, to Rebecca Fifer, in 1847.  They had 9 children.

Kit 22822 is tied to William Grant (born about 1700) came to America from Scotland around 1720. Family history claims that he was fighting the English and was sent as a prisoner of war to the Colonies and then spent several years as an indentured servant in Maryland. Another branch of the family claims that he landed in Philadelphia with his wife, Margery Verner. His son, also William Grant, married Elizabeth Boone, Daniel Boones sister. They lived in Rowan County, North Carolina and then settled in Kentucky near Daniel Boone and his family. Many descendants eventually traveled west to Missouri and then on to California and Oregon to live.

Kit 23080 is tied to the Rev William Grant 1712-1775 minister at Kilmonivaig, Inverness-shire. He started life as a graduate M.A. from Kings College Aberdeen (1732) became schoolmaster at Alvie, Cromdale, and Kingussie - 1742 missionary to Fort Augustus -1750 minister at Kilmonivaig. This branch of the Grants was supposed to have been part of the First House of Ballindalloch.

Kit 23170 is related to Thomas Jefferson GRANT b.1812 Georgia, USA. m. Rachael Hancock. Children include: Charles Clement, Gilphen G, George Washington, Mary Frances, Sara Temprence, John A, Irene Alice, Philo Thornton, Wilburn C, Martha A, Henry, Thomas L B, Robert E Lee, Joel Jackson.

Kit 24708 provides a direct link into the line of the Chiefs of Grant through "the Good Sir James" (fl. 1800) and Sir Duncan Grant, 1st of Freuchie (fl 1450) to Andrew Stewart (fl 1320) who married the heiress Maud Grant, adopting the surname Grant (see Monymusk text etc. at www.clangrant.org.uk ). For the moment at least, our best guess is that Andrew was the eldest, but illegitimate, son of James Stewart the 5th High Steward.

Kit 25705 is tied to a branch of Grant's living in the North East of England with origins as Horse Breeders and farmers around the Dundalk area of County Louth in Ireland. Family stories have connected with President US Grant both in Ireland and his visit to the North East of England. This fired my interest in my Family origins. It appears we are directly related to the Stewart Chiefs of the Clan Grant possibly a branch of the Grants of Glenlochy related to Robert Grant the Ambassador and related to others within the project in Canada, Australia and the USA. There are a number of theories can explain how we got to Ireland.  As supporters of Mary Queen of Scotts moving to escape persecution, Catholic relations during the Huntly rebellion moving from Scotland possibly with Rebel Grants of Carron, or moving to Ireland during King James I, 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 Jacobite links to our move to Ireland.  However, it appears the family were established  farmers renting a great deal of Land from the Crown by then, so any Jacobite link appears highly unlikely.  I have several sources left to explore which hopefully will supply further links. Clearly, a great deal of historical research will need to be carried out. My Branch therefore seems to be a very interesting Scottish, Irish English mix with many cousins across the Atlantic.

Kit 25934 is tied to

  • William Grant. His family has been traced from Augusta County, Va. to South Carolina in approx. 1767. He lived first in Union County (Ninety Six District) and then Greenville County. He was born in 1732 and died circa 1812. William Grant and his wife was Keturah had a son also named William.

  • William, moved from Greenville County to present day Oconee County. He was born in 1761 and died in 1853. Some of the original William's children and some of his son's children moved to Habersham County, Ga. At least one of the family moved to Tennessee and some went to Texas.

(Editorial Note – Can you complete your lineage down to you?)

Kit # 25935 is a descendant of William Grant.

My line continues back (non-paternally) to Sgt. William Grant of Scotland or Virginia 1725-1795

Kit 27245 is a descendant of William Grant born 1847 in Evanton, Ross-shire, Scotland, who emigrated to Dunedin, New Zealand in 1879. The identity of his Grant father cannot yet be proven, but it looks highly likely that 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 from Glenurquhart to Forres, Morayshire), who was the son of Robert Grant (born about 1760) and his wife Elizabeth Grant, who lived in 1784 at Oldton of
Sheuglie in Glenurquhart, Inverness-shire, Scotland. Robert was a soldier in the 42nd Regiment. Robert is likely a male line descendant of the cadet families of either Grant of Corrimony or perhaps Grant of Sheuglie, both in Glenurquhart. In 1790 Robert and his wife were living at Ballintrom (near Tomchrasky) in neighbouring Glenmoriston, but later children were born in Glenurquhart. See Kits 42813 and 90842 for lineal descendants of this Robert Grant.  

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

Kit 27700 is tied to

  • E. ALLEN. He died during the battle of Vicksburg. While serving under U.S. Grant. Stories have it that E. came over from Ireland. He was drafted into the Union Army in Springfield, Illinois. He fought and was killed in the battle.

  • My Great-grandfather was EDWARD "BUGG" ALLEN (E.1) the son of E. Allen. He died November 30, 1918 in Shiloh Baptist Cemetery, Sontag, Mississippi. He married ELIZABETH ANNE ANDERSON. 1910 census records show that he live in Attala C. MS., The records show him as being born in Mississippi even though the family stories have him being born in Ireland. William's 1920 census records show that Bugg was born in MS. Buried at Shiloh Baptist Church, 601-587-7653 Sontag Road, Sontag MS 39665.

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

Kit 30056 traces back through Lincolnshire Grants to James Grant [1741-1808]of Donington in Holland [Lincs]. His burial papers state he came from Perthshire. I have not been able to trace him back any further, despite going to the archives in Perth.

Kit 30498 ties to the Richard Grant ffound in Hanwell near Banbury Oxfordshire, in 1590. Descendents are scattered around Northamptonshire and Warshire. This below charts is correct from 1768.  Many descendents disappeared.

6. Their sons Ian  Kit 30498 and James.

Kit 30499 refers to the descendants of John Grant (c1700) in Inverlochie and his wife, Jean Forbes. Their place of origin is unknown. They had several children, all born in the Parish of Kirkmichael, Scotland. John came to America in 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 senior trading partner of Grant, Campion and Co. of the Northwest Co. William married Marguerite Fafard dit Laframbois at Trois-Rivieres in 1787 and was the father of HBC Chief Trader of Ft. Hall, Richard Grant. Richard Grant married Marie Ann Breland and was the father of 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. Other families related or associated with these Grants were Laframbois, Dobie, Breland, Rowand, Grant, Kittson, Higgins, McLauchlin, Dempsey, Tendoy,LaVatta, Bruneau, McIver, Dease and many more. My interest lies in identifying the Scottish place of origin of this family and other Grant connections. I am particularly interested in the various Grants of the fur trade era and 'our' Grant relationship to them and other fur trading families between 1700 and 1900.  Our direct line:

possibly Donald Grant in/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) > Richard Stanislas Grant (& Emilie Levreau de Langie) > Joseph Richard Grant (& Laura Delores LaVatta) > John Nelson Grant (& Frances Norton) > Francis Nelson Grant (& Amanda Lavoie).

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 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 31811Grandfather was Robert Grant- born about 1895 died 1983. My grandfather was born near the River Livet - not far from the village of Tomintoul, Aberdeenshire, just a few miles from the Glenlivet Distillery - in fact 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 RC Church - although my GF gave up his connection to that kirk. The Grants were all shepherds and indentured farmers all coming as far as I can tell from Speyside.

Kit 32020 is the great-great grandson of Charles Grant born in 1832 in England & died in 1875 in Canada. He married Catherine McMillian in Ontario, Canada. She was born in 1836 in Scotland & died in Canada. They had approximately 11 children, the oldest being William Grant b.Sept 16, 1854 in Mimosa, Ontario, Canada (Wellington County) and died March 5, 1909 in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. He married Sarah Ann Awrey June 30, 1875 in Mimosa. She was born 1855 in Bellwood, Canada and died 1888 in Hawley, Minnesota. He married Nora Adel Peck 1890 in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. She was born Oct 12, 1875 in Center, IA and died November 1932 in Alhambra, Los Angeles, CA.

(Editorial Note:  This is all great information, but for my purposes needs to be condensed to a simple lineage from your oldest known ancestor down to you.)

Kit 34306 - Family line is below:

  • William Cuthbert Grant, 1872--1949 m. Petronelle Monette lived on the Turtle Mtn.Rez in North Dakota.

  • Cuthbert Lewis Grant,1834--1909 m. Marie Gingras.

  • Cuthbert Grant jr. 1793--1854 m. Marie Mcgillis Metis/half breed - given the title of Warden of the Plains was associated with the Northwest Fur Co- his history is well documented in Canada.

  • Cuthbert Grant m. native American Cree woman Highland Scot partner of Northwest Fur Co in Canada died 1799 Fort William Ont.

  • avid Grant m: Margarete Grant, 3rd daughter of Robert Grant of Gleanberg.

  • Donald Grant of Letheadry in parish of Cromdale,Strathespey, Scotland.

Gleamed from a stack of notes and charts compiled by my mother some years ago, she communicated by mail and word of mouth with many people- but her notes and records are scatered and incomplete. The four Cuthberts lived in Canada and the U.S. and all had large families of 10 to 11 children. As I understand the dna results my roots are primarily Irish/Scottish and that would be understandable as my fathers line traces back to Scotland and my mother's family were all from Scotland, primarily from The Isle of Mull.

Kit 35068 Grandmother was GRACE PAULINE GRANT, born 9 Jan. 1904, in Clinton, Laurens Co. SC, died 2 Sep. 1960 in Greenville, SC. She had two brother's (Charles F. and Dwight M.) they were children of; BENJAMIN FRANKLIN GRANT, born 6 May 1882, in Laurens Co. SC, died 2 Feb. 1934 in Greenville, SC. He was a son of; GEORGE W. GRANT, born Dec. 1839, in what was known as 96 Dist. of upper SC. Today that area is Greenwood, Abbeville, and Laurens County, SC, he died in July 1889 in Pelzer, Anderson Co. SC. GEORGE W. GRANT was a son of ADDISON SAMUEL GRANT, born approx. 1815, died 14 Jan. 1848, Newberry Co. SC. Benjamin F. Grant, had five brothers and two sisters. I only have names for two brothers, (William, and John) and the two sisters, (Sallie and Bessie). George W. Grant had three brother's (William H., John S. and Andrew A.) and one sister (Mary/Mariah F.).

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! 

(Editorial Note:  Can you finish the tree down to you?  I will not show the living on any distribution to the general group.)

Kit 35990 is tied to Benoni Grant. Benoni was born in the late 1750's, supposedly in the state of Connecticut. I don't know when or where he was born or his parents. Benoni was an officer in the Revolutionary War. I suspect after the war he lived in New York State (possibly the area of Lake George). In 1793 he moved to the St. Armand area of Canada. He received 1200 acres in Stanstead, Canada in 1800. By 1820 he moved to High Gate, Vermont where he received a pension for his services in the Rev. War. He eventually moved to Lake George,New York. He died March 6, 1825. By his first wife (name unknown) he had 2 sons William and John. I'm a descendant of William and his wife Lois Burch. William was born c.1776 in New York State. Benoni married his second wife Catherine Deal August 30, 1795 in St. Armand, Canada. He had a large family with Catherine. I know a great deal about Benoni's descendants, but not his ancestors. Family history say he was related somehow to President Grant, but I've never been able to prove or disprove it. It could have been just wishful thinking on the part of my ancestors.

Kit 36728 is tied to his:

  • father was named Carl Washington Grant, born in Sumter County, Georgia.

  • great-grandfather was George Washington Grant, born 1845, married Naarcissus Easterlin October 22, 1872 in Sumter County, Georgia. 

  • great-great-grandfather, Thomas Jefferson Grant, born most likely in Georgia around 1810-1815, married Rachel Handcock, and died in Sumter, County, Georgia in 1879.

Kit 38400 I know who our great-grandfather Grant is (our father's grandfather), and have a reasonable amount of information about him.  His name 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 second surviving son, Andrew Jackson Grant was our father's biological father.)  The problem we have is that we have conflicting information about who Joseph's father was.  Information we have found leads us to believe 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 our Grant line, and why I'm hoping the DNA testing might open a closed door for us.

  • Reginald V. Grant/Page, born June 30, 1902 in Toms River, Ocean County, NJ; (adopted as an infant by first cousin Bertha Grant Page & her husband John B. Page); died November 19, 1989 in Bricktown, Ocean County, NJ; married Lydia Stasio on November 26, 1936, New York City; born January 2, 1909 in Philadelphia, PA; died January 23, 2008 in Lakewood, Ocean County, NJ.

  • Grandfather – Andrew Jackson “Jack” Grant, born May 6, 1866 in Toms River, Ocean County, NJ; died March 7, 1941 in Allenhurst, Monmouth County, NJ; married Matilda Ottmer on June 5, 1892 in Lakewood, Ocean County, NJ; born November 2, 1870 in New York City; died July 1, 1902 in Toms River, Ocean County, NJ.

  • Great-grandfather – Joseph Grant, born May 5, 1827 in either NJ or OH; died January 20, 1904 in Toms River, Ocean County, NJ: married Amanda Irons on April 20, 1850, Toms River, Ocean County, NJ; born June 11, 1832, Cedar Creek, Monmouth County, NJ; died April 28, 1902, Toms River, Ocean County, NJ.

  • Great-great-grandfather – Two possibilities: Joseph Grant Sr., born abt. 1777 in NJ; married to Lucy Grant; OR  Thomas Grant, born 1799 in NJ; married to Elizabeth Grover on December 24, 1823.

Kit 39417 can be traced to his:

  • great-grandfather James Knox Grant, who we believe was born in Inverness in early 1836, possibly the son of Lewis Grant and Ann Dallas. He immigrated to either Melbourne or Tazmania around 1853, and we know he definitely lived in Launceston, Tazmania for a short period, after which he immigrated to N.Z. He died on the 7th March 1894 in Otago and buried in Gore, Southland. Our problem is trying to connect him to someone in Scotland, as apparently no-one in the family knows any history at all about him.

Kit 39690 is a descendant of John Grant (b 1803 at Belleheiglash, Inveravon, Banffshire, Scotland ), a brother of Kit 27247's ancestor, William Grant (1809-1873, a tailor and clothier in Forres, Morayshire, Scotland) and similarly descended from the McRobie Grants.  John married his first cousin Christina Margach in 1833, emigrating to Oshawa, Ontario, Canada c1840, and died there in 1882.  He has many Canadian descendants.

Kit 40927 is a descendant of William Grant (d 1795) through son Andrew (d ca 1825) through his son Charles B Grant, through his son Henry B Grant. All lived in Rutherford, NC, then Charles moved to Macon Co., NC, where Henry was born.

Kit N41465 traces back to:

  • Father - Living;

  • Kenneth Leslie Grant (b.1905);

  • Leslie Grant (b.1872);

  • Edwin Ruthven Grant (b.1842);

  • Hobart Ruthven Grant (b.1810);

  • John Grant (Deacon)(b.1777);

  • James Grant (Captain James III, fought on colonial side in the Revolutionary War)(b.1752);

  • Ephraim Grant (b.1731);

  • James Grant (Captain James II)(b.1703);

  • James Grant (Captain)(b.1671/2);

  • Peter Grant (b.1631/4), exiled from Scotland by Cromwell after the Battle of Dunbar.

This Peter Grant line settled in the Berwick, Maine area following Peter's release from the Saugus Iron Works and remained there until Hobart Grant moved to Wisconsin in 1848. From there, the line moved to Michigan (mid to late 1800's), back to Wisconsin (1963), and recently to Florida.

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 descendents of John Grant the son of Noah Grant spoken of in the book by Arthur Hastings Grant "The Grant Family" which includes President U.S. Grant. Jesse Root Grant had a brother John Grant. All of this would mean that my GGG Grandfather was the cousin of U.S. Grant.

Kit 42813 is a lineal descendant of Robert Grant (born about 1760) and his wife Elizabeth Grant, who lived in 1784 at Oldton of Sheuglie in Glenurquhart, Inverness-shire, Scotland. Robert was a soldier in the 42nd Regiment. He is likely a male line descendant of the cadet families of either Grant of Corrimony or perhaps Grant of Sheuglie, both in Glenurquhart. In 1790 he was living at Ballintrom (near Tomchrasky) in neighbouring Glenmoriston, but later children were born in Glenurquhart. Kit 42813 is a second cousin of Kit 90842

Kit 42947 I am descended from George Allen.  George was born somewhere in England about 1630.  He allegedly migrated to Virginia with William Waller about 1648.  He married Mary Withers (also from England) about 1672 in Stafford County, Virginia and died in Stafford County in 1689.  Because of the settlement and migration patterns of this Allen line, I suspect Scottish ancestry.

Kit 43215 lineage is as follows:

  • Self  - Living 

  • Father - Living

  • Grandfather - Charles Leon Grant who was born 1915 and died in 1974.  He was married to Nellie Flora Oliver. 

  • G-Grandfather - Leon Mills Grant born 1893 and died in 1989.  He married Janie Ethel Lee.

  • GG-Grandfather - Amzi Neely Grant born in 1855 and died 1939.  He married Elizabeth Geneva.

  • GGG-Grandfather - James Henry Grant born in 1818 and died in 1892.  He married Elizabeth Pressly. 

  • GGGG-Grandfather -  Benjamin Grant who was born in 1790 and died in 1880.  He married Lavinia Williams. 

  • GGGGG- Grandfather - James Grant born about 1750 to 1755 was married to Dorcas and came to New York with his brother John in about 1774.  James and John were volunteer horsemen under Capt. Francis Kirkpatrick and were both from Chester County SC during the Revolutionary War.  James Grant died Nov 4, 1820. 

Leon Mills Grant had a son, George Mills Grant.  We have not been able to identify John Grant and his descendants.

Kit 43245 - My father had told me that my great or great-great grandfather (I don't recall which) was a first cousin to Pres. U. S. Grant.  I would really like to trace this back, but I do not have much of an idea how to go about it.  Father had also said that the immigrant ancestor came from Port Glasgow, Scotland.  His name and relationship I have forgotten.  Also, my grandparents divorced and father and grandmother moved from Illinois to California, so I never met any of my other Grant relatives.

  • Father:  Edward Mervile Grant - Born:  May 25, 1892 - Tonica, Eden Township, LaSalle County, Illinois   Died:  May 25, 1983 - Lebanon, Oregon.

  • Grandfather:  James Henry Grant - Born:  July 30, 1869 - Tonica, Illinois.  Died:  April 21, 1924 - Tonica, Ilinois. 

  • Great-grandfather:  David Grant - Born:  February 18, 1828 - Syracuse, New York.  Died:  August 22, 1914 - Tonica, Ilinois. 

  • Great-great-grandfather:  David Grant - Born:  about 1809 - Port Glasgow, Scotland.  Died: about 1908 - Illinois.

Kit 46469 is tied to John Grant, b. about 1760, living in Darlington District, SC, at least between 1800 and 1820. John’s sons include David (b. about 1789), Giles, and James (1799-1855), my second great-grandfather. About 1820, James married Nancy Anderson in SC. Nancy Anderson was the daughter of Jesse Anderson of Wayne County, NC, and later Darlington District. In the early 1820s James and Nancy and four of their children (Martha Ann, Susan Mozella, Mary Ann, and Cherry Ann) moved to GA, purchasing land in Jasper County and settling in Henry County sometime before 1840. By then, James’ brothers David and Giles had already moved to GA and later moved on to AL. James’ son William Miles Grant (1831-1912) married Elizabeth Permelia Young in Henry County in 1853, lived in DeKalb County, GA, at least between 1860 and 1870, and migrated to Ouachita Parish, LA, in the mid-1870s. William’s son Reuben Henry Grant (1861-1943), my grandfather, was born in Ouachita Parish and lived there until about 1900 and then moved with his wife and family to Eros, Jackson Parish, LA.

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 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 “descended from a younger son of the Chief of Grant”.  Adrian has said that it could have been a younger brother of James Stewart from whom we are descended. If that 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 have the paper trail for proof.
 
I will let you know what the outcome of the castle papers is as I may be able to go back even further.

Kit N64459 is connected to John Henry Grant. He was married to Margaret Grant (her maiden name). Margaret's grandfather was from Ireland and he married a Native Amercian. My grandparents liived in Cross Hill SC.

Kit N64459 is connected to John Henry Grant. He was married to Margaret Grant (her maiden name). Margaret's grandfather was from Ireland and he married a Native American. My grandparents lived in Cross Hill SC. [Please provide lineage chart.]

Kit 65580 reports his grandmother, Margaret Grant, told him that her grandfather was Irish and he was married to a Native American. He may have been a soldier in the Civil War. His grandfather is John Henry Grant. As you can see both their last names are Grant.    Both of them are deceased now. I have few other details.

Kit 67540 William Grant c1764 -1840 is my earliest ancestor. Married to Christian McGregor he lived in Cromdale, Moray Scotland and was a miller at Castle Grant. Children are John b. 1785, Balnaclash, Cromdale: Janet b 1787 Cromdale : Robert Henry b 1798 Milltown Cromdale, Jean b 1799; David my gr gr grandfather1794; and lastly Mary 1797 David 1794-1868 m Janet McEwan and was an excise officer who moved around Scotland dying in Perth in 1868 His son Archibald my gr grandfather b Dunning Perthshire 1842 -1916 emigrated to New Zealand in 1862. My main object in taking part in this project is to see if l can connect with other Grants going back further. Cromdale records pre 1790 were lost in a fire and as Grants are thick on the ground there it has been impossible to link in with the right family.

Kit 76350 Our research takes us back to Alexander Grant of Grantsfield, Scotland.  Born 1693, died April 28, 1776 Kinchirdie, Aberdeen Scotland.  Married to Margaret Farquharson of Inverey Scotland, December 1739. Our line descends from son named James Ogilvie Grant born (baptised) June 10, 1746 at Grantsfield. Died August 17, 1801 in Dorchester England.  James was a Colonel in the 49th Regiment.  He was married to Isobel Ogilvie on December 3, 1775 in Parish of Keith, Rathven County, Banffshire.  Had at least one son. James Grant. James was born in Blairmaude, Boyndie Co. Scotland c.1788.  Christened April 11, 1788, Church of Scotland. Parish of Boyndie Banffshire. Married Eleanor Maria Ann Elliot at St. Cuthberts, Edinburgh Scotland March 27, 1825.  Family emigrated to Sydney Australia (for health reasons) on the barque “Mary” in November 1839. James died in Campbelltown, Sydney Australia on April 19, 1840. Buried in Campbelltown cemetery. Eleanor, his wife remarried to Reverend William Walker on April 20, 1846 in Wesleyan Church Parramatta. Died June 30, 1872, Randwick, Sydney and is buried in St. Jude’s Anglican cemetery Randwick.  We descend from their son Alexander Ogilvie Grant.  Born Jedburgh, Roxburg Scotland, March 30, 1826. Married to Rosanna Amelia (Emma) Reid, April 21, 1851, West Maitland, NSW. Alexander remarried on September 16, 1881 in Bourke to Arabella (Bella) Battley. Alexander died May 12, 1891 and is buried in C. of E. cemetery Parramatta NSW.  We descend from Alexander and Rosanna’s son Charles Edward Grant. Married Charlotte Jane (Jessie) Hancock.  My grandfather was their son Cecil Lorraine Reidhaven Grant.  Born March 18, 1890 in Barringun, Bourke NSW.  A Chartered Accountant. Died April 20, 1963 Longueville, Sydney.  Married Mabel Lillian (Lil) Champion on June 24, 1918 in Armidale NSW. Mabel was born January 26, 1894 Armidale NSW and died Janaury 29, 1985 in Taree NSW.

Kit 76847 Grant ancestors can be traced no further than the end of the 18th century, when they were farmers in Duffus, Moray. The earliest Grant ancestor we can identify positively is Andrew.

  • Alexander's 1859 certificate of marriage in the Borough of Elgin. There are corroborated records of Alexander's birth in 1823 in Duffus and death in 1912, in Arran Township, Bruce County, Ontario.

  • John Grant in Duffus Parish, parents Andrew Grant and Elspet Dick, but the date lacks corroboration. John is identifiable in the 1841 census, with spouse Katherine (Ross), and place of residence, Woodside, Duffus. The same information is in John's 1873 death record. John and Katherine are named on their son (my great-grandfather)

  • Andrew, at the 6th generation. He and his wife Elspet Dick are named on their son John's death certificate (1873). We have a 1796 birth certificate for

(Editorial Note – could you send me the lineage all the way to you?)

Kit 82582 is the 8th generation of Grants in New Brunswick Canada, who were shipped out of New York in October 1773 to Partown Canada, which is now Saint John. My Ancestor who first came here was a Widow and was addressed as Widow Grant on all documents we have found. Her husband served with the king's American Regiment and was a (Memorialist). Widow Grant had 5 sons: Peter, John, William, finley and Lawrence who all settled in New Brunswick Canada. Widow Grant went on to Marry again to Mr Henry Chronkite. We are still searching for Widow Grants husband who was reportedly killed at the end of the Revolutionary war in 1783. We do not know his name. We do think that he may have served under col. Atwood who too, settled in New Brunswick Canada. It appears that the records to my Paternal Ancestor may be in the archives in NYC unless they were destroys by the Patriots after the war. We are still searching and hope we could find some missing links with other people in the DNA project.

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 85435 indicates that the oldest known relative I am certain of is:

John Henry Grant, born in Frederick County, Maryland, February 19,1790, married August 7, 1817 to Susannah Johnson who was from Pennsylvania and born 1794 and died 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 under Captain William Key from Ross County, Ohio. John Henry Grant is buried at the John 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 Great Grandfather.

I was told by a Darlene Ironmonger a few years ago that the only Grant left in Fredrick County Md 1790 was a William Grant. And she felt it was my John Henry Grant's father, but I have never heard from her again. And I have never been able to find anything else about him. I even e-mailed the USA Grant Clan researcher and have never heard from him either. And when I had the DNA test done they told me my Grant line was from the Lock Ness area of Glenmorisson area and they matched me to the Chief Stewart of Grant.

Kit 85599 is tied to William M. Grant born 1861 in Ohio . The son of Isaac and Lydia A. Grant also believe to be from Ohio. We do not know anything about him except he was married to Mary L. McDonald ( Nova Scotia) in Medfield, Massachusetts on Feb 27, 1889. They had three children their names were Dorothy, Clarence , and Ethel. He left them about 1898-- we have no idea where he went after. We would appreciate anyone with close DNA ties to respond.

Kit 90842 is a lineal descendant of Robert Grant (born about 1760) and his wife Elizabeth Grant, who lived in 1784 at Oldton of Sheuglie in Glenurquhart, Inverness-shire, Scotland. Robert was a soldier in the 42nd Regiment. He is likely a male line descendant of the cadet families of either Grant of Corrimony or perhaps Grant of Sheuglie, both in Glenurquhart. In 1790 he was living at Ballintrom (near Tomchrasky) in Glenmoriston, but later children were born in Glenurquhart. Kit 90842 is a second cousin of Kit 42813.

Kit 91779 is a descendant of William Grant, b. 1707, of King George County, VA.  William was married to Margaret White. They had one son, James Grant.  On his maternal side, Eduardo Henriquez, b. 1864, was from Analusia, Spain via Cuba.

Kit 92374 is tied to John Grant (born abt 1740) in Tomchaldon/Thomchalton croft in Tulloch. He married Janet Grant on the 16th Sept 1766. They had a son Gregor Grant born abt. 31 Jan 1766 (oops). This Gregor married Margaret Cameron, date unknown. They had a son Grigor Grant born 12th 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 the family moved to Rynuan. He was also a Corporal in the 10th Militia. An area near Stranrue was named after him "Grigor’s Green" (Not known of now by the locals). By all accounts he was a bit of a lad! I think this move coincided with the croft at Thomchaldon burning down and or the marriage of his son Gregor (born 3rd March 1827 my GGG Grandfather ) to Janet Stewart of Rynuan in 1850. Gregor and Janet had a son Donald Grant (born 3rd March 1855 my GG Grandfather( 1 of 7 children)). The more I look into the circumstances of the Tulloch area the more I am convinced that Thomchaldon was perhaps a sub tenant croft on the Mains of Tulloch farm. More research underway in the Seafield Papers may resolve this. Donald then married Christina McLeod at Charlestown, Inverness. They had nine children. One of them Charles, my Grandfather, was born in Upper Kessock Street, Inverness. It would appear that the family moved around the Inverness/ Aviemore area. The oldest 2 children appear to have been born in Bonar, Balphadrig a suburb of Inverness, they then moved to Alvie where my grandfather was born, then they move back to Inverness. Still looking for information earlier than 1740.

Kit 93864 is tied to James Grant who married Isabella Cameron 9/9/1788. At the time of his marriage he was living at Mill of Tore (Balnain) in Glenurquhart west of Drumnadrochit. The DNA results show that James is decended from the Grants of Shewglie/Sheuglie but James' father is not known. Two possibilities are Alexander Grant (The Swordsman) descended from the second son of Robert Grant 2nd. of Sheuglie and Colonel Hugh Grant of Moy descended from the first son.

Kit 97440 is tied to

§  William Grant, b. 1721, location unknown. He was in Orange County, VA by 1750s, so he may have been born there. William died in 1795 in Rutherford, County, NC. Kit 97440's, his

  • 4th great grandfather was the above mentioned William Grant.

Kit 100170 is a descendant of

  • the possible son of George Grant III and Patience Hobart.  Their son,

  • Ichabod.  Birth, marriage and christening records. Unable to verify William as the son of Samuel, but that was proven by Robert Grant and Rick Crume. Info on George and Ida came from my grandfathers marriage license. Records for my grandfather’s brother Levi Raymond was found at the home of my grandparents in 2007.  Located graves for George’s brother and sister, as children of Ichabird and Mary. (s/b Ichabod) Ichabod was the 2nd settler to the Southampton area in 1862 have located his old homestead site. My grandfather birth was never recorded, his parents were both dead by the age of 9, he was raised by his older sisters.  My grandparents are buried in the East Cloverdale Cemetery with my grandmother’s parents. George Frederick is also buried there in an unmarked grave. We have some idea where his grave is located, family members passed the info down over the ages and my aunts were able to pinpoint a location.

  • William Grant

  • Samuel Grant, christened 1760 in Dublin Ireland.  Samuel Grant married Ann Nancy Nichols and their children were, William 1787-1879, Samuel Jr.1790-1856, Ann, Mary1792-, Elizabeth 1808-after 1860, Benjamin 1816-, Fanny 1806- and Charles 1806-.  Rick Crume is in possession of Samuel's christening record.

(Editorial Note – the lineage breaks down with Icabod.  Can you complete the lineage to you?)

Kit 101946 goes back to 1846 to Marlboro County, SC with Peter Grant who was married to Ann Eliza Chance. It is believed that Peter Grant, Jeremiah Grant and John Grant were all brothers but this is yet to be proven. No information has been found to date that takes us further back than Peter Grant and we have no history further back. We are interested in making a connection with other Grants that can add to our family history.

Kit 102542 goes back as far as !835, with the birth of Edward Grant of Co. Armagh Ireland, a farmer. He was born Nov 11, 1835 and died April 22, 1892 in Brookfield, MO. Buried in St Michaels Catholic Cemetery. He married Mary E. Grant, of Irish ancestry, born in Canada, July 1839. Listed in the 1910 census as being 69 yrs and a naturalized citizen. We do not know where in Canada they lived during this time. Further research is pending. Mary may be an McConnell, as Edward McConnell born in Co. Armagh Ireland, is buried in the same plot. He died in 1875 at age 90 years. Sons and Daughters born to this union, Emily Grant b. 1860 Canada, Margaret Grant b.1861 Canada, John Grant b 1863 Canada, Joseph Grant b.1865 Canada, (married Josie Grant, daughter Mary E.

Pershing)), b Mountain Grove,Mo); Frank Grant, b. 1878 Grantsville, Mo; Patrick Grant b. 1880, Brookfield Mo. d.1880 6 mo; Mary Catherine Grant b 1884, Brookfield Mo. *Robert Grant was living in Tulsa Ok in 1930, son Chester died in Tulsa, April 11, 1998, born July 16, 1907 or 08. **Sons of Lawrence were Clarence (Pat), b. 1909 (m. Florence, son Robert Lee and daughter Patricia Ann), Emery W. Grant (father of our line) sons, William E. Grant, Clarence R. Grant, daughter Judy Grant Small. Would love to have any information about the rest of this family.

Kit 112611 earliest known anscestor 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 emigrated 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 (!879-1951) 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) Montomerie 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 #115576 is a descendant of Matthew Grant (1601-1681) is our earliest known ancestor and sailed to America from SW England circa 1631, arriving first in Dorchester, MA, but settling Windsor, CT, soon after.  The line looks like this:

  • Father - Living

  • Dr. Levi Harrison Grant (Jan 19, 1889 Minneapolis, MN-July 21, 1968 Akron, OH) married Helen Gertrude Pepper (June 14, 1891 Boston, MA-Oct. 22, 1979 Akron, OH) on July 12. 1919 in Boston, MA.

Harrison and Elizabeth Kinnier, in Smithville Flats on Dec. 1, 1842. Resided in Smithville Flats til 1869 when he moved to Greene, NY. Was a farmer.

  • David Grant (Feb. 25, 1778 Litchfield, CT-July 25, 1849(1850) Smithville Flats, NY) married Jemima Bancroft (May 30, 1781 Torrington, CT-July 22 (23, 25), 1863 Smithville Flats, NY); daughter of Ephraim Bancroft and Jemima Loomis in Litchfield, CT (Torrington), 1805. Resided in Litchfield until 1808, then moved to Smithville Flats, NY. Was a farmer and the US marshal at the ovation given to editor Selleck Osborn, confined in jail in Litchfield in Aug. 1806. ()

  • Ambrose Grant (Sep, 14, 1747 Litchfield, CT-Dec. 7, 1816 Litchfield, CT) married Hannah Mason (Feb, 12, 1745/6 Litchfield, CT-July 3, 1832 Litchfield, CT) daughter of John Mason and Lydia Cook, in Litchfield, CT, on Nov. 20, 1771. Resided in Lithchfield and worked as a tythingman, surveyor, lister, fence viewer. Served in the Revolution (his musket being in the possession of the author Arthur Hastings Grant c. 1900) but was taken ill about the time the British took N. Y. C. and went home. He had prisoners stationed at his house until the close of the war.

  • Increase Grant (Feb 13, 1716/7 Windsor, CT-1793 (will proved Nov. 11, 1801)) married Ann Hosford, daughter of Deacon Nathaniel Hosford and Mary Phelps, in Litchfield on Feb. 19, 1745/6.. Married secondly Mindwell (Lyman) Strong (July 13, 1714 Northampton, MA-1791) in 1786. She was the widow of Jacob Strong, Jr.

  • Josiah Grant (Jan. 28, 1682 Windsor, CT-Feb. 26, 1762 Litchfield, CT) married Sarah Cooke (?-July 30, 1713 Windsor, CT) daughter of John Cooke and Sarah Fiske, in Windsor on March. 30, 1710. Resided in Windsor until 1726, then moved to Litchfield, CT. 

  • John Grant (Sep. 30, 1642 in Windsor, CT-July 22, 1684 Windsor, CT) married first Mary Hull (Oct, 8, 1648 Windsor, CT-June 29, 1720) dau. of Josiah Hull and Elizabeth Loomis, on Aug. 2, 1666.  

  • Matthew Grant (Oct. 27, 1601 in England-Dec. 16, 1681 Windsor, CT) married first , Priscilla Unknown   (?-Apr. 27, 1644 Windsor, CT) on Nov. 16, 1625 in England.

She was the widow of Deacon William Rockwell and probably the daughter of Bernard Capen. They did not have any children, allow Susanna did have children from her previous marriage. 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 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.

Kit 120814 - My family, as I know it so far, is from N. and S. Carolina. I've verified my gggrandfather to be James S. Grant (b. 1862 or 1878) m. Nancy Prevatt (b. 1869 or 1881). I'm currently looking for James Grant, father to James S. Grant, m. Sarah Quick of S. Carolina. It's not much info, but hopefully it rings a bell for someone.

Kit 121522 is a descendants of John Grant (c1700) in Inverlochie and his wife, Jean Forbes. Their place of origin is unknown. They had several children, all born in the Parish of Kirkmichael, Scotland. John came to America in 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 senior trading partner of Grant, Campion and Co. of the Northwest Co. William married Marguerite Fafard dit Laframbois at Trois-Rivieres in 1787 and was the father of HBC Chief Trader of Ft. Hall, Richard Grant. Richard Grant married Marie Ann Breland and was the father of 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. Other families related or associated with these Grants were Laframbois, Dobie, Breland, Rowand, Grant, Kittson, Higgins, McLauchlin, Dempsey, Tendoy,LaVatta, Bruneau, McIver, Dease and many more. My interest lies in identifying the Scottish place of origin of this family and other Grant connections.

Kit 122206 lineage is as follows:

  • My Grant line married into the Allen line back in 1750 in Rothiemay, Banffshire, Scotland. Both sides of my husband’s family were in Rothiemay, Huntly and Aberdeen until the 1900"s. Other family connections are Cruickshank, Scott, Hepburn, Gray, Mc Donald, Stewart, Minto (Minty) and Mc Pherson.
     

  • Alan Keith Grant was born 1931 in Baltimore, Maryland. We married in 1957 and he died in 1997 of ALS. We started our genealogy search when he was diagnosed with ALS and so far no trace of it in his genealogy. 
     

  • Alan Keith Grant was born 1901 in Bankhead, Aberdeen and he died in died Detroit, Michigan in 1953. He married Williamina Scott in Holyoke Mass.
     

  • Charles born 14 April 1858 in Newhills also went to Maine. His first wife was Jessie Gordon Gray and she died in Maine He sent for a housekeeper Mary Rankin Young and he married her on Deer Island, Maine 4 March 1895. He had 6 children by each wife. When the family returned to Scotland permanently most of the children remained in the States. Some in Mass and some to California.
     

  • William Grant born 1831 in Abernethie was a feur and stone mason He travelled to Russia and Maine and had a granite quarry on Vinalhaven Island, Maine. He had 2 wives Margaret Minto (Minty) and Isabella Keith. and had 3 children that I know of.
     

  • John Grant born 1781, in Inveravon,  married a  Marjorie born 1785 (1841,1851 and 1861 census)
     

  • As yet unproven: Angus GRANT,

Kit 123602 is believed to be a descendant of Christopher Grant, born 1608, location- England, not proven, to Watertown, Essex, Mass. where worked as a glazier on the first Harvard U. building. Parent may be John Grant of Roxbury, Yorkshire, England, born 1563 who had a son, Christopher.

Kit 126367 is a direct descent of:

  • Their second son, Sidney George Grant, my father, was born 1/9/1888 who married my mother Elsie May Pike on 26/12/1920 in Crewkerne,Somerset. He died 27/6/1968.

  • Their second son, another David, my Grandfather, was born 14/4/1858 at Glenlarig,Edinkillie. He married Cis (not her true christian name) Smith, who was born about 1857 in Taunton Somerset. They were married on 23/11/1884 in Marylebone,London. He died 14/12/1932.

  • Their second son, also David, and my great Grandfather, was born 1814-1817. He married a Jane Ross in 1849 in Edinkillie.

  • Alexander Grant, his great-great-great-grandfather, who married Margaret Grant 26/6/1756 in Edinlillie. One of their sons was David, my great-great grandfather, who was born/Baptized 14/5/1767 in Bogginay,Edinkillie. He married a Margaret Duncan 3/12/1804 in Edinkillie.

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

Kit 133216 is a seventh generation descendant of Alpin Grant, who left Scotland in September 1775 with a group of emigrants on the ship Glasgow bound for New York. They were prevented from entering the harbour by a British man-o’-war (“lest they join the disturbances ashore”) and were sent on to Boston where they were enlisted in a loyalist force called the Royal Highland Emigrants, or the 84th Regiment of Foot. Eventually he was stationed in to Nova Scotia and served there until they he was discharged in October 1783.  He was subsequently given a grant of 500 acres of land in the Pictou area for his military service.

 The OPR for Urquhart and Glenmoriston, indicates that Alpin Grant was born on 15 March 1740, that he had a sister Ann who married Alex Grant, Carnoch, who later lived in Drum Fadda, near Corrimony, and an elder brother, James Grant, who was married on 13 February 1755.  (Alpin and his wife Margaret Grant were living in Drum Fadda when their second son, James, was born in 1773.) Alpin’s brother James came to Nova Scotia with his family on the ship Hector in 1773 and was a miller by trade.  It is believed they had another brother, John Grant, who served with the 42nd Reg’t. (the Black Watch) during the American campaign.  When he was discharged in Halifax in 1783, John gave Alpin the right to land that he had earned because of his military service. 

 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 the western end of Glen Urquhart and was part of the estate of Grant of Corrimony.  In the 1770s John Roy Grant and his sons James and John had the rental of “an auchtenpart of land” in Garvault (in Strathspey) plus an “oxgate in the Black Ward” (about two miles east of Garvault) and the “improvement of Coire Seilech” (immediately adjacent to Garvault), for which they paid £92: 8 shillings in annual rent.  These may or may not be Alpin Grant’s father and brothers, but there is a strong possibility that they are.  The rental for 1774 no longer includes the names of James and John, James having left for Nova Scotia on the Hector the year before, and John likely having joined the 42nd.

Kit 142073 - The original Grant ancestor that we know of fought at Culloden and was exiled to Jamaica in 1746.  We know that a son accompanied him who was around the age of 10, (born 1736 approx.), too young to have fought.  His lineage is:

  • My father was Robert Hartley Grant.  I know there are still a lot of blank spots, including the mysterious connection to Ulysses S. Grant yet to be uncovered.  My wife is also connection to Ulysses S. Grant through the Simpson line (Ulysses' mother's maiden name).

  • Robert Hartley Grant, b. July 27, 1917 in Vega Baja, Puerto Rico, where Robert S. was managing a Pineapple plantation. 

  • Robert Stanley Grant, b. June 28, 1885, in Troy, New Hampshire, (Also two sisters, Dorothy and Margaret).

  • William Francis Grant

  • Colin Alexander Grant II, born approx. 1807 in Jamaica, at their coffee (or sugar?) plantation, Abbey Green. When he was 10, his parents and younger sister died of Yellow Fever and after a guardianship by the plantation manager and a Catholic priest, he was apprenticed to the British Merchant Navy.  He deserted in Falmouth after his first voyage.  He later joined the joined the Royal Navy and married an Anne Richards of Dublin, Ireland. They had one daughter, who dies at an early age and nine sons: Colin, Robert, Reuben, John, Charles, William Francis, James, Frederick and Emmanuel.

151747 – is a member of the very large Virginia-A group over in the THORNTON Surname DNA Project. The Virginia-A group has several main subgroups. Three of these subgroups descend from early settlers in Virginia in the 1600s. These include William “The Gloucester Immigrant” THORNTON, Henry THORNTON (thought to be William’s brother - but no proof of that), and Luke. Evidence has been presented that William was born in Ryvington, Lancashire c1621. Luke is thought by some to be William’s son by a first marriage while others believe he is the grandson of Henry THORNTON and Martha FLOUD of Middlesex, England, however, no proof exists for either theory. The Luke subgroup is by far the largest within Virginia-A. The fourth group, the Northamptonshire group (of which I am a member) can be traced back to the southwestern 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 (Group 10A-Grant/Thornton)” group and the “EDMONDSON Haplogroup I - Lineage I” group. These three groups most likely had a common progenitor that existed prior to the 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 the highest concentration of this Haplogroup today – this suggests that the MRCA of our EDMONDSON-GRANT-THORNTON group, or his descendant, may have arrived in England as a Swedish Viking over a millennium ago.
 

Kit 154584 Thomas Grant (1630-1690). It is unknown where he was born or who his parents were. We do know he crossed the Scotland border into England fighting on the side of Charles II. He was captured during the Battle of Worcester. He was sent to America on the ship John and Sarah and was sold as an indentured servant. He was one of the early members of the Colony of New Plymouth. He resided in the colony for many years with his family and the vital records of his family were preserved in the Rehoboth records of the Colony.

Kit 156050 is tied to William Joseph Grant

  • William Joseph Grant born 1829/1830 in Lenoir County, NC. William married Katherine Caroline Bean in 1854. They had six children, Jasper Newton Grant (1858–1926), Elijah Buchanan Grant (1861–1917), Caroline “Katie” Grant (1868–1930), John McFadden Grant (1870–1916), George W. Grant (1870–1905), and William Perry Grant (1872-1949). Caroline was earlier married to Konard Hartwick and had two children named Loduskia and Celianne, which adopted the name Grant. William married the widow Sarah Waddle Morrison in 1877 in AR after the death of Caroline. William Joseph Grant died sometime after 1883 in Van Buren County, AR.

  • Father- Charles Walker Grant b. 1934 Toronto

  • Grandfather- Hugh Grant (need to seek out more info)

  • GGF - Walker John Grant (110335381 as documented by Hastings)

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 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.

The Gregor Grant Family, 1720 – date.

Gregor, assumed son of Patrick Macalpine Grant 1665 – 1742, Laird of Rothimurchus (See Sir Wm Fraser, Chiefs of Grant p 509.  Mother, Rachell of Tullochgorum, Patrick’s second Wife (see NRS:SC29/55/3, fos 92-3). b.approx 1728 Inverdruie, Merchant in Edinburgh, d. Edinburgh 17 February 1782, buried in Greyfriars Churchyard, Edinburgh.

James, Gregor’s second son b.1770 Edinburgh, Actor, D. London 1829

George, James first son, b Carlisle 1798, watchmaker London and Calcutta, d. 1873 Islington.

George Gregor, George’s first son, b 1839 Calcutta, Clockmaker, d. 1908 Bexleyheath, Kent 1908.

George Ferguson Gregor, George G’s son, b. 1869 Calcutta, Civil Servant London, d. Tunbridge Wells, Kent 1939.

Garrow Gregor, GFG’s first son, b. London 1900, Chartered Architect, d.1973 Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

John Michael Gregor, GG’s son, b. Tunbridge Wells 1935, Chartered Quantity Surveyor London, retired 2001.

James Alister Gregor, JMG’s son, b. Tunbridge Wells 1969, Chartered Structural and Civil Engineer.

Adam Gregor, JAG’s son, b.2007.

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.

(This is great historical background, but too complicated to actually show the lineage from the most distant Grant to you.  Can you condense the information to show line directly to you?)

Kit 175989 descends from James Cuthbert Grant, son of HBC Chief Trader 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 at or 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 Mary Grant Rides At The Door, Julia Grant Magee, Richard Grant, James Cuthbert Grant Jr., John Grant, Emma Grant, and Maggie Grant. James/Jimmy died at Dupuyer, Montana, in 1883. Some of the family history is detailed in Blackfoot Heritage Book. 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 Great Grandfather Reagion Havelick Grant. His grandfather was Orris Osalfort Grant, and his father was Orris Ulysses Grant. He has traced the family back to a John Grant, but there are so many, he does  not know which trail to follow.  He was told the family came over from Scotland to New Brunswick, Canada in the late 1600's or early 1700's and moved to Canterbury, York N.B. then into Hodgdon, Maine in the early 1800's.  Reagion was born in Hodgdon.  He has other names but do not know how they fit in.  "The more I look into it, the further I get lost."

Kit 179369 has as his oldest known ancestor, William Grant of Coldingham, Berwhckshire.  His lineage is as follows:

  • Father - Ronald Grant (b. 1922 and d. 2002 in Australia) m. Ivy Patricia Gray.

  • Grandfather - Joseph Evans Grant (b. 1876 and d. 1949 in Australia) m. Jessie Campbell.

  • Great-Grandfather - Joseph Grant (b. 1843 in Dunnet Caithness and d. 1915 in Australia) m. Mary Evans in Melbourne.  Joseph and his 11 siblings emigrated to Australia.  They accompanied their parents Robert and Isabella Grant.  One brother David has a descendant Richard Grant in Darwin.  You can see from the database that "Dick Grant" is a close DNA match.

  • Great-Great-Grandfather - Robert Grant (b. 1807 in Edrom Berwickshire and d. 1883 in Australia) m. Isabella Logan.  Robert's brother William also emigrated to Australia.

Kit 194361 is linked to the Grants of Campbell County, Tennessee. James Grant (ca. 1754-1824) came to the confluence of the Clinch and Powell Rivers in upper East Tennessee at the end of the 18th century. He was joined there during the first decade of the 19th century by other relatives, notably John Grant, John, Jr., another James, Cynthia, Elizabeth, Jonathan, Abigail and perhaps others. The family originated in New England. James Grant was a Sergeant in the 3rd, 4th and 1st Connecticut Regiments in the Revolutionary War. He was one of the founders of the Knoxville Polk Lodge #2. He served as a Justice of the Peace in Grainger County, and Chairman and Clerk of the Courts of Anderson and Campbell Counties. James Grant knew many of the influential leaders of the U.S. Territory South of the River Ohio and the fledgling State of Tennessee, including William Blount, Stockley Donelson, Andrew Jackson, John Sevier, George Washington Campbell, Joseph Anderson, Hugh Lawson White, John Overton and Jenkin Whiteside. He was the Lt. Col. Commandant of the 33rd Tennessee Militia. He founded and served as a commissioner for the town of Grantsborough, which was inundated by the reservoir created by the Norris Dam in 1936. Known descendants of this family moved to Missouri in the late 1830's and 1840’s.

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

Kit 212164 brother of Kit # 30499) refers to the descendants of John Grant (c1700) in Inverlochie and his wife, Jean Forbes. Their place of origin is unknown. They had several children, all born in the Parish of Kirkmichael, Scotland. John came to America in 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 senior trading partner of Grant, Campion and Co. of the Northwest Co. William married Marguerite Fafard dit Laframbois at Trois-Rivieres in 1787 and was the father of HBC Chief Trader of Ft. Hall, Richard Grant. Richard Grant married Marie Ann Breland and was the father of 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. 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. My interest lies in identifying the Scottish place of origin of this family and other Grant connections. I am particularly interested in the various Grants of the fur trade era and 'our' Grant relationship to them and other fur trading families between 1700 and 1900. Male line:

possibly Donald Grant in/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) > Richard Stanislas Grant (& Emilie Levreau de Langie) > Joseph Richard Grant (& Laura Delores LaVatta) > John Nelson Grant (& Frances Norton) > Francis Nelson Grant (& Amanda Lavoie).

My Grant heritage takes two tracks.  Thefirst from my 2nd Great Grandfather Charles Gordon and my 6th Great GrandmotherCountess of Fife, Jane Grant.  According to Ancestry.com, this Grantline than runs back to the first clan chief.   My 4th GreatGrandfather, William Gordon, married Janet Duff, daughter of the Countess ofFife Jane Grant.   This is found in the second attachment.

The second line (the first attachment), runsfrom 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 FamilyTree Maker and that family indicates a William born 1811.  We have yet toconfirm 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 timein a Highlander Regiment.  Many of the Grant's ended up in Iowa, notfar from US Grants home in Galena, Il.  There was a WilliamGrant earlier in the same area and he may have been an Uncle.  Bothmy Grandfather William Grant and this second William Grant owned property inClayton County (Millville) Iowa although different tracts.  The second wasthere in the l830's and was commissioned a Captain in the IllinoisMilitia.   

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 fondnessfor Gordon girls on both lines through out history.

   -  GGG-Grandfather:  William Grant 3, b. 22 Sep 1782, Virginia, USA; d. ca. 1837

Notes: 
   1.  According to the cemetery where he is buried, William David 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 is in northern Fayette County.
   2.  Joseph is said to have told William David Grant’s children that he had the same middle name.
   3.  William Grant’s birth information is based on his being the William Grant who married Patsy Browning in Bourbon County, Kentucky in 1801.  Their information is found in a family bible, and it doesn’t match William’s 1820 Census information.  This might be explained by William’s household being an extended family, but it probably eliminates this case.

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 married Elizabeth Lagueux at the Quebec City's presbyterian church, St-Andrews, 13 November 1811. The record states that he is approximately 27 years old and Elizabeth (nick name Frasine), approximately 22 years old. At this time, there are 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 and creative individualist, a self made man. William and Elizabeth had 11 children born in Quebec City, Lévis (across the St Laurence) and Montebello on the Ottawa river, where the family eventually settled circa 1826.

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

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

Miscellaneous Comments

Here is my Grant line.  At the bottom is my maternal grandmother.  It works upwards to show how I am related to Pres./Gen. Grant.   The Grant line now goes back to 1060..... and as you go back the surname turns into Graunt... and then Graunt DeTurberville.  (...they dropped the DeTurberville and just went by Graunt until it turned into Grant.). The line end with Hugh DeTurberville  b. 1060 in Brecknockshire, Wales.

My Grant line does not have any males to produce a DNA history but I do know the family history back to the 17th century. 

Charles Scribner Grant b. 1917, my father, married Katharine Glascock
  Harry Lamar Grant, b. 1879, Covington, KY m. Margaret Scribner
    Edward Schwarz Grant m. Josephine Lamar, Covington, KY
       James Broome (?) Grant, b 1829 m. Amelia Schwarz
          Joseph Pierce Grant b. 1786, married Rachel Broome, daughter of Jacob
          Broome, signer of Constitution, Maryland
            Moses Grant, b. 1744, Boston, member of real Boston Tea Party
            m. Sarah Pierce, (2nd wife)
               Samuel Grant, b 1705, Boston, Dean of Old South Church, m.
               Elizabeth Cookson
                  Joseph Grant b 1660, Boston, m. Mary Thatcher
 
Here it gets a little murky.  Book in Boston Genealogy Society says Joseph's father was Alexander Edward Grant m. Sarah Ware ,b 1629.  Alexander Edward is supposed to be from Scotland.

My great grandfather Edward Schwarz, writing in the late 19th century,  thought the first immigrant ancestor was Samuel Grant because the name was common in the family.  He had no proof but thought that Alexander Edward had been the founder of the Scottish Society of New York.

I looked through your DNA list and didn't see anyone of this lineage.  Have you run across anyone?  Any information would be appreciated.
