The Descendants of John Grant and Mary Sabean

In Nova Scotia, the focus of study on Scottish settlers, including the Grants, centers on the eastern counties and Cape Breton Island. In the United States, Grants are often linked to Ulysses Grant genealogically or through DNA.

The Grant families of southwestern Nova Scotia remain overlooked. This gap motivates George Allen Grant to craft a narrative history, exploring a family deeply rooted in the land, shaped by the forest, and tested by the maritime elements of Nova Scotia. His passion lies in recounting the family saga and tracing their journeys to New England, particularly Massachusetts. The study fulfills an unspoken task from the author’s Aunt Ruth Dexter, driving him to dedicate much of his family’s early retirement to the project, with more discoveries anticipated as ancestral clues are uncovered and genealogical challenges are overcome.
