I am trying to find some possible relations between a Grant family in Lachine, c. 1780-1830, near Montreal Canada, said tto be be from Glenmoriston.
They were three brothers:
1. John, described as merchant and forwarder, c. 1751 - d 1817 in Lachine. He could have been in Oswegatchie c. 1779 where his house and farm were burned down. He then came to Montreal.
From unproven sources, he is said to have been a nephew of captain Alexander Grant, b 1734 Glenmoriston, son of Patrick Grant and Isobel Grant.
2. Duncan and Peter, fur traders with the North West Company
Said to be related (uncles or cousins) to explorer Simon Fraser, whose mother's name was Isobel, or Isabella Grant.
Very little is known about these Grant, yet John played an important part in the history of Lachine.
Any light, help or hint would be more that welcome.
