FIRST NATIONS (40,000 yrs. ago to the present) ERA
Some interesting facts:
- Some Canadian First Nations people have the last name "Grant." For example Dorothy Grant is a famous Haida artist and fashion designer.
Her work is on display in the Royal BC Museum Shop .
She kindly let the editors know that her father was Owen Charles Grant, her grandfather was Frederick
Grant of Hydaburg Alaska and her great-grandfather was Orlando Wells Grant of Ketchikan Alaska, via
Seattle and perhaps Nova Scotia. He left there at age 15.
- Some members of the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma, USA, are descended
from Ludovick Grant of Creichie, Aberdeenshire. Ludovick Grant was captured at a Jacobite uprising
in 1715 and sent to South Carolina as an indentured servant. Later he became a trader and married
a Cherokee wife. His descendants are now recognised as the Siol Lewis sept
of the Clan Grant. Check out
scotland.com and clangrant.org . Apparently, none of
the Siol Lewis members have the surname "Grant."
Please either post information about Canadian Grants during this Era on our
Google Group or send it to the editors .
