About us


Welcome to the Grant Y-DNA Project

The project is open to (the DNA of) all male Grant's who wish to know more about their early lineage.  By clicking on the links on the navy blue line above, you can learn more about the project and test results.  The tables contain the current Y-DNA and mtDNA values for the Grant DNA Project. This information is linked directly from the on-line database at FamilyTreeDNA. Values in red are predicted by FTDNA and values in green have been confirmed by SNP testing.  (As this is a surname project, you will notice we pay a lot more attention to the yDNA than we do the mtDNA for obvious reasons.) -- Last updated on 5/24/2017

Group A (Chiefly), Subgroup 1:R-P312>DF19>DF88>Z17274>Z21133+ (Fruechie, Corriemonie, Shuglie, Glenmoriston, Blairfindy & Kilgraston)


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 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 133216 is a seventh generation descendant of Alpin Grant, who left Scotland September 1775 on the ship Glasgow bound for New York:
  • Sons of: Willard Geddes Grant b. Feb 1903 Trinidad d. Sept. 1979 Toronto, ON, Canada
  • Son of: Thomas Geddes Grant b. May 1866, Merigomish, NS, d. Sept. 1934, Trinidad
  • Son of: Rev. Dr. Kenneth James Grant, b. Feb. 1839; d. Jan. 1931, Halifax, NS
  • Son of George Grant, b. December 1799, d. Nov 1892 Pictou County, NS
  • Son of Peter Grant: b. ca. 1767 Glen Urquhart, Scotland; d. October 1859, Scotch Hill, NS
  • Son of: Alpin Grant b. March 1740, Glen Urquhart, Scotland; d. date unknown, probably Pictou County, N.S. 
  • Son of: John Grant (also known as John Roy Grant, MacAllanvain) born ca. 1700, probably Glen Urquhart, Scotland.  Date and place of death unknown, likely in Glen Urquhart, Inverness hire, Scotland.
  • Son of: Allan Grant (known as Allan Bain)

The ship was prevented from entering the harbour by a British man-o’-war H.M.S. Asia (“lest they join the disturbances ashore”) and was sent on to Boston where they were enlisted in the 2nd Battalion of a loyalist force, the Young Highland Emigrants (later the Royal Highland Emigrants, the 84th Regiment of Foo).  The 2nd Battalion was eventually stationed at Windsor, Nova Scotia and Alpin Grant was discharged there in October 1783.  He received a grant of 500 acres of land in Pictou County for his military service, although he sold it and bought 100 acres of land on the harbour just east of the town of Pictou.

The OPR for Urquhart and Glenmoriston, indicates that Alpin Grant was born on 15 March 1740.  The records are missing for the period when his first two children, Peter and Elizabeth, were born. There is an entry for the birth of his second son, James, in September 1773 and it notes that his wife’s name was Margaret Grant.  They lived at a place called Drum Fadda, which is near Corrimony House, Glen Urquhart, Inverness Shire.  Alpin Grant had a sister Ann who married Alex Grant, Carnoch, in 1749 and they also later lived at Drum Fadda.  Their elder brother, James Grant, married Janet (Jannet) Grant on 13 February 1755.  James and Jannet came to Nova Scotia on the ship Hector in 1773.  He was a miller by trade and they eventually settled at Springfield, Pictou County, Nova Scotia.  It is believed there was 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.  DNA evidence indicates that this family was descended from John Grant, 1st of Corrimony, by an unrecorded birth, likely in the period 1509-1515.

Kit 197946 descends from John Ban Grant:
  • John Ban Grant m. (possibly) Margaret ____
  • Peter Grant; Farmer; born 1798; died 1850, Charlottenburg Township, Glengarry County, Ontario
  • James Wright Grant (third of five sons), born 1842, Charlottenburg Township; yeoman; emigrated in 1882 to Cameron, Missouri; died 1911 in Cameron.
You also may be interested to know that Alexander Grant, the founder of Alexander Grant & Co. (now Grant Thornton) comes from this line. He was James Wright Grant's fourth son (by his second wife). Alexander was born in Missouri in 1898, founded the company in 1924, and died in Chicago in 1938 at the age of 40.
His lineage is as follows:
  • Father - Harold Kelly Grant
  • G-Father - James Wright Grant
  • GG-Grandfather - James Wright Grant
  • GGG-Grandfather - Peter Grant
  • GGGG-Grandfather - John Ban Grant
  • GGGGG-Grandfather - Peter Grant
John Ban Grant who is on the E 1/2 of lot 10 on the front. I have the Abstract for the same land and it was given to Peter Grant from the Crown.   Peter Grant left Glenmorriston, Inverness-shire, Scotland in 1774.  His two sons, John and Duncan, arrived in America in 1773.  Peter and his family originally settled on Sir William Johnson's land in the Mohawk River valley in New York.  After the war they moved to Charlottenburgh, Glengarry, Upper Canada (Ontario), in 1783-1784 due to the persecution they were receiving.  Peter was granted land that was on the St. Lawrence River.  Both John and Duncan also fought in the war and received land for their services as well.  They were brave and loyal Scotsmen and represented the Grant Family well.

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, TX.
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 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 80907 - was born in the UK and emigrated to the US in 1967.  His paternal grandfather, Samuel Herbert Ruddle, was born in London in 1880 and the illegitimate child of a maid servant.

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."

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


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.

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 31811 Grandfather 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 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 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 560739 is a descendant of Charles Grant:
  • My Grandfather’s name was Chester Adelbert Grant, he was born 11-18-1924
  • My GGrandfather’s name was Charles Lewis Grant, he was born 5-11-1890,married Blanch Pratt – died within a couple of years of their Marriage, 2nd wife – Cora Frances Conrad – born 10-17-1890 in New York.  He had a brother named, Everett Grant
  • My GGGrandfather’s name was Adelbert Everett Grant, born October 1860
  • (Machias, Washington County, Maine).  He married Essenia MacCarthur , born Sept 1863 ( New Brunswick)

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

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

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 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.

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.

  • 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 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 was 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.

I am as yet unable to find out where we exactly fit but I amresearching a hypothesis which will probably take quite some time. I have afairly comprehensive family tree built up of the families from 1773 andinformation on this family back to about 1670. I am happy to share myknowledge.

  • my great great grandfather George Grant , the 6th childborn April 1783. George married Elizabeth Seivewright at Drumoak on 25 July1812. George Grant “Servitor to the Lady of Drume “ died in 1639. Drumoak isright 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 offarms/villages that make up the Strachan area.

My family knew that they were “descended from a youngerson of the Chief of Grant”.  Adrian has said that it could have been ayounger brother of James Stewart from whom we are descended. If that is thecase I think my ancestors had very good memories for the legend!

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

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,

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 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.

  • 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 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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. Married secondly Susanna (Capen or Chapin) Rockwell (Apr. 5, 1602-Nov. 14, 1666 Windsor, CT) in Windsor, CT, on May 29, 1645. 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 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 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.

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 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.

Kit 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 156050 is tied to William Joseph Grant

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 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 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.

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.

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 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. 
  • Colin Alexander Grant and he grew up and was married in Jamaica.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kit 145982 has little information about his family, but knows that his grandfather was Kenneth William Archibald Grant, b. in Banjoewangi (Indonesia) on November 6, 1894. His father is George William Grant, also b. in Indonesia (Surabaja), on October 21, 1920. Kit client was born in Jakarta (Indonesia) in 1952.

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 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.
