    Picture Note: Michael Grant baptism entry - 29Apr 1866, extract from the parish entry of Mullaghban RC chapel, Co Armagh. Parents are "James O Grant & B. McVarry" of Cargin (Carrigans townland). There are two James Grant's in Carrigans townland at the time; one is from Owen Grant the other from Terence Grant. Thus the "O" in James Grant's name is probably to identify his family. In the 1901 census for the family Michael is called Owen. © Copyright the National Library of Ireland - http://registers.nli.ie/ Catholic Parish Registers at the NLI.
