Surnames: GRANT McDONNELL CAMERON
Anne, follow-up to my previous post

I found a baptism for a John Grant b. 11 June 1808, but his parents were Alex Grant and Anne Cameron. So this can't be the John you found in Alex' will. (But there is a John in St.Andrew's records b. 1830 to Alex and Anne McDonnell).

Whoa! just occurred to me that that answers my question posted on message board: there was another Alex Grant married to an Anne. I wonder if those are my James' parents???

This might explain why James Roy's grandson did not live near lots 25-26 100 years later.

"John Grant son of Alexr Grant of Charlottenburg (South Branch) and of Anne Cameron his wife, was born on the 11th and baptised on the 24th June." [1808]

The wording is exactly the same as the wording for James except that the mother's maiden name is included.

I checked the name of the other child not named in Alex Grant's will. Donald, bap. 5 Jan 1794 is the son of Anne McDonnell. Maybe he died young.

Now I guess I need to learn who Anne Cameron was and where other Alex Grants lived. (sigh!)

[Also found at FamilySearch, baptisms of other children of Alex Grant and Anne Cameron: Margaret, 15 June 1810 and Hugh 20 Feb. 1805. (No James listed there).]
