  • Notes 
    • Mary was born out of wedlock to John and Elizabeth Cobb. We hold a bastardy record from Occold Parish in Suffolk dated 1808, for John Granger to pay support for the maintenance of a female child born to Elizabeth Cobb. Occold lies about 12 miles south of Shelfanger.  This John Granger is The son of William Granger and Mary Holmes; Early's older brother.  Shelfanger All Saints parish records show that  John married Elizabeth in 1811. Three more children were later born to them, John, Early, and Emily.   Baptism records only exist for Emily at Shelfanger Particular Baptist.  Elizabeth died in 1820.

      There is no record of this child coming to America with John and his family in 1830.  There are, however, census records of a Mary Granger, born 1808, living in Diss.  She shows up in the 1841, 1851, and 1861 censuses, never married, claiming to be born in Shelfanger. She died in 1866. Everett Granger holds copy of death certificate.

      Banns were posted for the marriage of John Granger (wid) to Lois Barker (wid) 19 May, 26 May, 2 June 1822, but apparently there was no marriage in 1822 since banns were again posted 9 Dec, 16 Dec, and 23 Dec with marriage being recorded 27 Dec 1827.

      In his will drawn in September 1865, he notes two other daughters, Susan and Harriet, for which we hold no record exept Marie Velardi’s unpublished Register for John Granger:

      W I L L 
      I John Granger of the town of Hempstead, Queens County and State of New York, do hereby make, publish and declare this my last will and testament, in a manner and form following, that is to say; 
      First, I do hereby order and direct my executors hereafter named to sell all my real and personal estate that I may die possessed of and pay all my just debts and funeral expenses out of the same after my deceased [sic] as conveniently as may be. 
      Second, I give and bequeath all the remainder of my estate after paying debts and funeral expenses equally between all my children John Granger, Early Granger, Ephraim Granger,,Elizabeth Gillen wife of Charles Gillen, Ruth Nostrand wife of Garret Nostrand, Emily Mott wife of Henry Mott and my three daughters in England, Mary Granger, Susan Murdock wife of ---- Murdock and Harriet Bloomfield to them their heirs and assigns forever, so that they share and share alike. 
      Lastly, I do hereby nominate constitute and appoint my two sons John Granger and Early Granger executors to this my last will and testament hereby revoking all former wills by me made. 
      IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and seal the 13th day of September 1865.
