These two Georgia, USA, railroad engineers who attained
considerable prominence in the Atlanta area were brothers
from Frankfort, Waldo Co (previously Hancock), Maine, born
there in 1817 and 1812, respectively. I have spent a good
deal of time searching the web, using worldconnect, looking
at the 1820 census, and so forth, without being able to
identify their parents. They also had a sister named Eliza,
and their mother was still alive in Maine in the 1840s. Note
that I know all about the Grants in Georgia and just need
to know about the family in Maine. Thanks.

I have answered my own question! A copy of a Bible record
is in the Grant Family File in the library at the Georgia Archives.
James Grant, Jr. (1781-1823) is the father, and his early
death may explain the migration of his sons. His wife was
Hannah Pratt (b. 1785). Children were:
Alfred (1808-1875)
Resilla (b 1809)
Eliza (b 1811)
James Harvey (b 1812)
George Albert (b 1813)
Joseph Wood (b 1815)
Lemuel Pratt (1817-1893)
Nathan Willard (b 1820)
Elmira (b 1822)
Welman (1824-1824)

My Grant ancestry comes from Hancock County. The Maine census records for 1810 lised a James Grant. That census did not list names o.nly age groups, under that James listing is:

1 male 16-26 yrs group
1 male 26-45 yrs group
1 male > 45
1 female 10-16 yrs
1 female >45

This listing did not prove to be in my line
