I am a direct descendant of Stubbs Gant, b. 1864. He married S. Jane Mitchell and had several children: Ila, Pearl, Reubin, Rufus, Resey or Reesy, Sidney, and Mazie/Mazaree/Missouri Gant. Some of these children may or may not have added a "T" at the end of Gant. Most of these children moved to New York City and Philadelphia in the 30's and 40's.
For this family, I am seeking any and all descendants. I am very interested in knowing who Stubbs parents were. It seems he was born in Georgia, but I know they originated in South Carolina, which is just a few miles or across the Ogeechee River which was close to where Stubbs was in Screven County, Georgia.
There are three women named Gant who are buried in Screven County: Lucy Gant, Ellen Gant, and Elease Gant. Elease may have been a child of Stubbs and S. Jane. Not sure how they are connected, but pretty certain they are.
Also, the Gants were related to the following families by marriage and/or blood: Mitchell, Lockhart, Young, Hendrix, Dunbar, Rouse.
