Dawn. I'm seeking information on Ephraim Grant, my 4th great grandfather. According to an 1850 U.S. Federal Census he was born in the West Indies around 1773. The earliest known date I have for him in North Carolina is 1830. He married Nancy Kinchen from NC. I'm trying to find out who his parents were and in what part of the West Indies he lived.
