  • Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHY: The book "Past and Present, Kox County, Ohio, Volume II - by Albert B Williams" - says he was a native of Beaver County, Pennsylvania.
      " ....... The maternal grandparents, Jonathan and Sarah (Kelley) Grant, were natives of Beaver county, Pennsylvania, and they came to Ohio in a very early day, and in 1809 built the first cabin in Prairie township, Holmes county, when this country was a wilderness and the haunt of Indians and wild beasts. The grandfather cleared a "patch"' and then fell ill, as so many of the newcomers, to a wild country did, and for twenty-eight days lived by roots and barks, provided by his son. When about to die, an Indian buck happened along and directed them to the family of a ''pale-face" on the Killbuck river, and there the son found Jonathan Butler, who, with his father-in-law, had reached the place the day previously, and subsequently the two families became very friendly, and as Grant could speak the Indian language he acted as "outlook" for surveyors who were surveying the "new purchase." He was a mighty hunter and many deeds of prowess are told of him. He returned to Pennsylvania the winter after his arrival here, and in April, 1810, brought his family to his new home; and, prospering through hard work, he made a good home here and in it spent the balance of his life. He was a veteran of the Revolutionary- war, and for many years was a spy among the Indians of the early times. His family was a large one, and the mother of the subject had the distinction of being the first white girl born in Holmes county."
