Generation No. 2

2. ALLAN PETER2 GRANT (DUNCAN1) was born Jan 30, 1796 in Banffshire, Scotland, and died Apr 9, 1870 in St. Cuthbert (Culbert) Church Cemetery, St. Teresa, PE, Canada. He married ELSPET/ ELIZABETH KENNEDY Nov 12, 1819 in Kirkmichael Parish, Banff, Scotland.

Notes for ALLAN PETER GRANT: Mabel Grant says he was born in 1794-1870. He settled in Eastern PEI. - Peakes. Osgood email - I tracked down Allan Peter to Tomintoul, Scotland, a gorgeous little town, 50 houses along one main street on the edge of Glenlivet Estates where Grant Whiskey is distilled. It's known for it's hiking trails and tourist buses stop daily to shop in the little souvenir shops. Allan P and Elspet were married 1 mile away by a priest one day and a Church of Scotland minister the next on her family farm called Inchnacape. It's a desolate spot with huge peat fields and a view of the highlands all around. I have photos. Elspet's family still lives there and I met a descendant. Her sister Janet married a James Grant (couldn't trace any connection} and I met the g'g'grandaughter, a Monica Grant. She's a delightful single lady from the town and works as a book-keeper in the distillery. She hosted my family for a weekend and drove us all over. We saw the church built the year after Allan P probably emigrated and it's IDENTICAL to my father's church on PEI - teal and coral, very unique. It was spooky to be in mass there in Scotland. Unfortunately the PEI church was burned down 2 years ago. Anyway Allan P's Dad was from Grantown-on-Spey. It's a larger town near Lochness where everyone is a Grant. They apparently moved a lot locally, I couldn't get much on them. Allan P was a shoemaker in Tomintoul before emigrating. There was a bad flood there which may have affected them. He had Ann b. Feb 27, 1788, Katrine, May 30,1831 - 1918, James b 1832, Allan 1836-1914 and John b 1846. Allan was my g'g'grandfather. James was born 1832 in British Colonies so we assume they emigrated 1831 or 1832. My cousin on PEI has a Johanna, b 1831 listed in her records but I could never find her records. I found records of what is listed above. Ann and Katrine were born in Scotland. So these are the highlights, I''ve never had time to get it all totally organized but have copies of a lot of stuff. What do you have and how do you fit? My grandfather was Daniel from Peakes PEI, son of Allan, Allan P's son.
