According to the Land Petitions, John Grant was about 80 years old in 1843 when all of John's children applied for land as children of UEL. This would mean that John Gratn was at least born in 1763 or before. He would have been old enough to serve. I am trying to track down the ship that Peter and his family came over from Scotland on, and where he was from. For so long I assumed he was from Glenmorriston since he was in Charlottenburgh among the Jacobites. Do you suppose he was a Strathspey Grant?
