"DR. F. A. GRANT was born in Lawrenceburgh, Indiana, October 3, 1852, and is the youngest of a family of four children of R. S. and LOUIE A. (BENNETT) GRANT. At the age of five years, he moved with his father to a farm near Greensburg, Indiana, and here young GRANT received his first schooling. At sixteen years of age, he entered the academy at Elizabethtown. The first fifteen years of his life were passed in working on the farm and attending school; 1870 found DR. GRANT beginning the classical course in Hartsville University, at Hartsville, Indiana, where he remained two years, and while at this institution, was ordained a pastor in the Christian Church, and preached at Elizabethtown and Brush Creek.
