I'm looking for any of my relatives that I'm unaware of. I don't know much about my family history. My grandfather is Albert Grant of Macon Georgia. His cousin is the mother of the writer Alice Walker. If you're related to either of these people please write me.[ our family is African American, so I doubt we're related to the scottish or english Grants ]

Hi Corine,

I have a GRANT connection in Jasper County, GA.
My G-Grandmother's name was Luella GRANT who married Eben MOORE around 1917. It was her 1st marriage and his 2nd. Luella was 22 born abt. 1888 according to the 1920 Census, and Eben was born 1876 in Jasper County, GA according to the 1900 and 1880 Census. She had a sister Silvana GRANT age 09 who lived with them. I don't find Luella or Silvana before 1920 in Jasper County and don't know where they may have come from. Eben died in 1927 in Jasper County and I think Luella re-married to a WILSON after 1930 and moved to Whitfield County where she died 1937.

I have been lookin and lookin for African American GRANTS in Georgia but have come up with no leads.
