Hi Jay: You are correct about our John Grant, Duldreggan. He left Scotland 1785 arriving in Montreal sometime August 1886. That is when he got his land .... 25/26 4th from the lake, or sometimes labelled as 2nd c or 3rd range from River Aux Raisin. He also received land in the 3rd C Front or Gore.
Margaret has traced a daughter married and living on one of the Lots there. Now John Grant may have come up to the land of 25/26 in 1786 but he was back in Montreal for his marriage to Mary McIntire in October 1787. I am descended from the youngest child of this union. Alpin Grant whom lived on 25th and eventually farmed east 1/2 of 25.4th from the lake.
