COVERT Byron Bray, email@example.com April 11, 1999
Seeking information on the ancestors, descendants and families of PHEBE
COVERT. She lived in Seneca County (then Cayuga County) from around 1790
until around 1833, marrying JOHN S. GRANT (b. 1788, NY). They both lived
in or around this area until around 1835, when they moved to Michigan.
They had five surviving children: Susannah Grant (m. Jacob BOICE, lived
in Albany, N.Y. and/or New York City, N.Y.), Abram I. Grant (born c.
1811, in Seneca County, New York - m. Jane HARRIS - died 5 March, 1902,
Adrian, MI), John Covert Grant (born c. 1819, probably in New York - m.
Wealthy PALMER - died 27 March, 1909, Dover, MI), Mary (Grant) FLAGLER
(married William W. Flagler and moved to Springfield, Illinois), and
Darius Simpson Grant (b. 1830 - m. Minerva BOVEE - d. 1864, Dimondale,
Eaton County, Michigan).
Abram Grant may have attended a seminary college in the Ovid area. Around
1835, Abram journeyed to Lenawee County, Michigan and was granted land
there under the Land Grant Act of 1820. He then returned to Ovid and
collected his parents and siblings and moved to Lenawee County. Susannah
Grant appears to have already married Jacob Boice and to have remained in
New York, and so did not make this move.
I have a great deal of information on their descendants and will be happy
to share it.

Mary). My quest however is primarily for Florilla Crawford who is either
Calvin's sister or niece. I and my daughter have been pursueing this

somewhere. Calvin was a religious man (Baptist in later years) so if there
are church records he might be there. Any help or ideas will be greatly
