Hi Joy and all,
The Abstract is for title purposes. I have attached a copy of my John Grant's lot 10, 1st Concession Abstract. It shows the transfer of the property. I got these from the Ontario Land Registry. I was very excited recently when I was able to trace my family to my UEL ancestor. Peter Grant came from Scotland in 1774. I haven't filled in all of the information but I can connect my same Peter Grant to Sir Johnson's land in the Mohawk Valley, also Peter is on the the victualizing lists, and so is his service in the KRRNY. Peter's son John's land petition (as UEL in his own right) stated that he lived on lot 10, 1st Concession and his father was Peter. As luck would have it, I had already sent for the attached Abstract where I found that Peter had received the land from the Crown. Both of the victualizing lists and the record in the KRRNY showed that Peter had two sons. From this Abstract, it leads me to believe that John, Duncan, and Peter Jr. are brothers and sons of Peter. I don't know Peter's wife's name though. If anyone has any clues to this family, I would love to hear from you.

If you have any connection to the lots that I mentioned, let me know and I will post them or email them to you. I love the Grant history and I have learned so much through my research.
