Big John the Robber Grant b. abt. 1725 d. abt. 1783 . He was in his fifties living in Mohawk Valley NY when Rev War started . He was father of Angus Balagooey Grant UE aka the Laird of Martintown who lived Lot 24 Martintown Glengarry . He was father of Peter Grant Laird of Martintown who also held Lot 24 Martintown . He was father of Christie Grant who also held Lot 24 Martintown .
In same time period , John Duldreggan Grant arrived in Glengarry in 1786 with 8 of his 9 children and is found on McNiff's Map 1786 as Mr John Grant holding Lots 25 & 26 SSSBRR [for ease of distinguishing him from other John Grant , I refer to him as John Duldreggan Grant Lots 25 & 26 Street Road Charlottenburg Glengarry] . His eldest son was Alexander Alex Grant who was old enough to draw his own land which he traded to his father for east half of Lot 26 Street Road , thus I refer to him as Alexander Alex Grant Lot 26 Street Road Charlottenburg Glengarry . He was father [among others] of John Duldreggan Grant who married the afore mentioned Christie Grant and they farmed her Lot 24 Martintown .
Later family and genealogists then morphed Big John the Robber Grant and John Duldreggan Grant Lots 25 & 26 into being one man .
Both men had a son named Angus Grant , with Big John the Robber's son holding Lot 24 Martintown and he was UE , while John Duldreggan Grant Lot 25 & 26 Street Road son Angus Grant was the only one of his 17 children to NOT live in Glengarry and he died in India .
Both men had a wife named Mary McIntyre , with Big John the Robber Grant's wife giving birth to Angus Ballagooey Grant circa 1745 , while John Duldreggan Grant Lots 25 & 26 wife gave birth to the last of her 8 children named Alpin Grant in 1802 the year his father John Duldreggan Grant died age 65 [ 1737 - 1802 ] .
