I have a few headstones of Grants from Feshie Bridge but the only John I have died aged 18 in 1868, son of Charles who was a Carpenter. But a few other Grants as well. If they are of any use i will post them.

I have some info on a John Grant, born Alvie about 1815, married Jessie Carr in Aug 1843 and died 26 April 1906. In 1851 census (aged 35) his occupation is given as saw miller and his address is Mill of Feshie. Similarly in 1871 (aged 56). In 1861 & 1881 (aged 46 & 66 resp.) it just says Sawmill or Sawmiller's house for his address. He had at least 11 children. Is this the one you are interested in? I had thought at one time he was one of 'my' Grants, but don't think so now. Can give you a little more info if interested.

Sorry in taking so long in getting back. Posting the head stones would be useful. Thanks

John Grant and Jessie Carr are part of my Grants so any information you can give would be great.

I dont know of any of my Grants going to Australia that far back but where could I get a copy of the book for checking?
