Mamrie Grant-Everett appears under a multitude of variations for her forename. These include Mary Ann in 1881 and 1901. Probably the correct spelling is that given in the newspaper announcement of her marriage to James Grant in Fredericton, York Co., NB 24DEC1873 where she was Marmora Cox. James was from Douglas Parish, where there had been a Grant family since about 1785.
In Perth Parish, Victoria Co., NB in 1891, James (38) and Mamaree (37) Grant had ‘Harrey’ (16), ‘Murry’ (13) and Grace (3). Next door was a widow, ‘Dolley’ Cox (68) with children William (33) and Elizabeth (37). This may become significant. On the other side of Dolly was the family of William (53) and ‘Brigett’ (52) Grant, and beyond them the family of Frank (28) and Grace (27) Grant. William Grant b. ca. 1838 may be the same in the family in Douglas Parish, York Co., NB in 1851:

The theory being that William E. (b. ca. 1837) is the son of Thomas and Mary Grant and the same in 1881. Also, since these families were next to each other, it seems likely that Thomas and Charles were sons of the widow, Nancy Ann Grant b. ca. 1767. I keep coming up with James Grant b. ca. 1850, s/o Charles and Margaret as the most likely husband for Mamaree.
George L. Everett’s 1st wife was Ida Belle McKinley (d. Fredericton 20AUG1891). d/o Daniel McKinley of Kingsclear Parsh. He married 5JUN1894 Marmaree Grant at her home in Lower Perth. William Cox was best man and the ceremony was officiated by a distant cousin of mine, the Rev. J. J. (James Joshua) Barnes (Free Christian Baptist). Mamaree was given as the daughter of Murray (ca. 1816/8-17SEP1888) and Mary Cox. Mamaree Cox b. ca. 1854 is very likely the Mamie Isabel Cox b. Perth Parish, Victoria Co, NB 21MAR1852, d/o Murray B. and Mary (Grant) Cox; suggesting that she and James had some relationship. In birth Records, such as that for Murray Bliss Grant (b. Kilburn, Victoria Co., NB 18MAY1877), she was Marinee Cox, and James was James A. Grant. William Burtt Cox (2AUG1856-15JUL1923) was her brother, likely the best man at her 2nd wedding, and the name, Burtt, also suggests origins in Douglas Parish, York Co., NB. However, ‘Muray’ (37) and Mary (28) Cox lived in Perth Parish in 1851. In 1861, their daughter was Marmeree Cox (9), but the enumerator’s spelling was especially bad (i.e., ‘Murey B. Cox).
I would suspect that Nancy Ann Grant was the daughter-in-law of a widow who petition for land in York Co. in 1784. The widow’s husband had been in the British American Corps. About the same time there were a Samuel and William Grant petitioning. William was in the British American Corps and Samuel apparently in the Guides & Pioneers. Sgt. Samuel Grant’s (of the Guides & Pioneers) widow, later was Ann Grant, living in Douglas Parish, with a son, Charles. She died 28DEC1856. Sgt. Samuel served in engagements at Charleston, Little York? and Brandywine. A schoolmaster, Samuel died roughly 1818. In 1843, Ann was given as age 69 but that may have been her age in 1838 (she was 69 in 1840 as well), so she was b. roughly ca. 1769-1774. This does appear to be consistent with Nancy Ann b. ca. 1767 in 1851. Something of Samuel Grant is at:http://www.uelac.org/Loyalist-Trails/2011/Loyalist-Trails-20...http://www.newirelandnb.ca/Genealogies-G/Grant.htmlhttp://www.onelibrary.com/ancestors/grant/pafg04.htmhttp://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi/page/gr/fg.cgi?page...
The above is more suggestive than authoratative and needs work.
