Launcelot Granger was one of my 8th great grandfathers. Much has been recorded about him throughout New England's history and there is at least one published Granger genealogy. Several cousins have been working on the descendants in various branches from Launcelot, so I am posting my meagre information here.I am currently working to incorporate some new information and if my life doesn't unexpectedly fly out of control (it has been known to do that), I will have some updates soon.
This symbol represents my direct lineage.
