Mr. Grant was married to Margaret Bowman January 24th, 1864, in Etna Green, Kosiusko county, Indiana. No children came to bless this union, but their home has been the home of the orphan, there having been in their home at one time seven motherless children. One of these, Mrs. Hillis of Jennings, Oklahoma, has been with Mr. Grant part of the time during his last illness.
In the year of 1870 they moved to Crawford county, Kansas, and the following spring to their farm 2 miles northeast of Howard, residing there until moving to Howard five years ago.
Our departed brother and comrade was a member of Company F, 74th Indiana Volunteer Infantry, having enlisted in the summer of ’62 and was discharged on account of disability in the fall of ’63.
