Hi,
I am looking for information about John Grant born 16 July 1834, in Summerstown, Charlottenburg, Glengarry. His father was named John Grant (b.Quebec) and his mother was Jennie McDonnell (b.Ontario). (On marriage licence she is listed as Jane McDonald)
He is listed as a clerk in marriage licence. He married Bridget Whalen 13 October 1872 in Camden, Lennox/Addington. Traced the family in censuses (Napanee, Belleville, and eventually Toronto.) he died in Toronto on April 14, 1914.
He was Roman catholic, if that is of any help.

I would love to have any information about my great-great grandfather and any of his ancestors.
