  • Name: Hectorina Kennedy GRANT
  • Given Name: Hectorina Kennedy
  • Surname: Grant

  • Birth: January 20, 1807 in Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland
  • Death: April 12, 1850 in St. Augustine, Fla, St. Johns County, Florida, USA

  • Note:
    1) Baptism records of the First Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania mention that Hectorina was born in Glasgow and baptized there by Dr. Belflour.

    2) It appears Hectorina was first married to a Grant probably in White County, Illinois in June 1824. She was 17 years old. There is a June 4, 1824 letter kept at the Waln family historic house museum in Crosswicks Creek Park in Allentown, New Jersey. This letter was written by her oldest sister, Mrs. Mary Fraser (Grant) Ridgway to Mrs. Sarah (Ridgway) Waln (Mary's sister-in-law). Mary briefly mentions a sister of hers that is to be married in a few days. It has to be Hectorina because her other sisters were too young. Also, a descendant of Hectorina's says she had a son named John Grant born on September 19, 1826 in Indiana and died on Nov. 9, 1900 in Chilton County, Alabama. A 1880 Clanton, Chilton County, Alabama census has both of John's parents born in Scotland. John named a daughter after her.

    2)At the Grant-Ridgway family plot at Westwood she's listed with the following information; 1807-1850, daughter of John Grant of Inverness.

    3)She's also listed with the same information at the Hugenot Cemetery in St. Augustine, St. Johns County, Florida.

    4)It appears neither of the husbands are buried at these cemeteries.
