Joshua Grant was born ca 1760-1765 according to varying census records.
We have found him in:
Shapleigh, York Co, ME in the 1790 and 1800 Census.
Dearborn, Kennebec Co, ME in 1810 - 1840.

Samuel Grant was born in 1784 in NH (as documented in the 1880 Newton, Harvey Co, KS Federal Census from his son Greenwood)
We have found him in:
Dearborn, Kennebec Co, ME in 1810
Somerset Co, ME in 1820-1830
Washington Co, OH in 1840-1860

Greenwood Child(s) Grant was born in Dearborn, Kennebec Co, Maine in 1813-1815. This is based on the fact that Greenwood had a sister named Deborah who was also documented as being born in Dearborn ca 1813. Greenwood and his wife Rebecca Morey married in 1838 in Columbus, Morgan Co, OH. They had eight children (all found in the attached genealogy report). It appears that Greenwood moved to Ohio in 1836. He and the entire family moved to Newton, Harvey Co., Kansas (possibly via Flat Rock TWP (Sedalia), Missouri) in and around the early 1870's and there has been a connection to Newton to this date.
We have found him in:
Morgan Co and Washington Co., OH in 1840 - 1860
Pettis Co, MO in 1870
Newton, Harvey Co, KS in 1875-1885 (State Census records) and 1880 (Federal Census records)

My grandfather, John Howard Grant, had told me about his grandpa (John Quincy Grant, Jr.) and uncles rounding up horses on the Cherokee Strip in Oklahoma and selling them in Wichita, Kansas. I have since found references in the Newton Kansan Archives that support this story.

The early part of my information was word of mouth from my Grandpa (John Howard Grant). Since then, I have validated the vast majority of the content against obituaries from the Newton Kansan, written records from the Newton Public Library and the Historical Society.

Please look at the attached report. I have managed to connect with 12 others researching this line. If you're related, welcome to the family.
