Cannon / Newkirk Hopefully we can exchange some info on the branches of the Conklin line that crossed Long Island Sound from Huntington, N. Y. to Norwalk, Conn. Sorry that I couldn't give you the "sources" you were looking for.
RE: Hi Janice Bio on this memorial was based upon research I did back in the 1970s. I had photographed many of the Quigley headstones at that time. Unfortunately digital photography was not in at the time and the photos were not of good quality. Happily, a modern researcher photographed what remains of Hugh's stone.
Would like to hear from you and exchange information if you will contact me via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Ephraim Grant Hi; Maybe this will help. The only place I have found the service of Ephraim Grant is in the pension of his son Samuel Grant, who was in Boston (if I remember correctly) It mentions his serving under his father Capt. Ephraim Grant look for the Rev War Pension (#R4199) for Samuel Grant. Also there was a book which said Captain Ephraim Grant, saved the life of a Rev War Captain, who had a broken leg, he carried him to a hiding place, and hid him from the British who were looking for him. After Ephraim moved his family to Berwick for safety. Samuel was a younger brother of James who is in question. Tom
I was never able to prove that the Capt James Grant was in the Rev War, but given the place, his age, and who his father was (Militia Captain Ephraim Grant) and the fact he had brothers serve, I am fairly sure he was involved in some way. Yes there was a James Grant from Briarwick who served, and it could have been him, but I did not really think so. Many people have used the genealogy (Peter Grant, his story, Scotch Exile, by Leola Grant Bushman, Chap. II, p 101) which says this James Grant served. It would be better to connect to his father Ephraim. I can send you what I have as proof on Ephraim if you give me your e-mail. I can give you Helen's e-mail, and I know she would love to converse with you, but I am not sure she would be of a help. She has also had other's trying to prove the line, but her application to this James was rejected by the DAR, as they wanted more proof, and she is skittish now about reapplying for Ephraim Grant his father.

James Grant Hi; I have a lady who would love to correspond with you on James Grant. She has been reject on a DAR application for him. Why does he have an SAR Marker? Who was his father, the father of her James Grant was Ephraim Grant 1731-1799 and died in Frankfort. I would love to correct this error. There is even a Grant genealogy that is in error then.
