¹ This partial tree has been compiled from information submitted by Leroy Hanna; in particular, obituaries for Margaret (Stewart) Grant, Jane (Grant) Coles and John Stewart Grant. Various Canadian Censi were also useful but several assumptions have been made so it may not be completely reliable.
² Richard Hanna married Isabella Simpson Grant, daughter of William Grant and Margaret Stewart; although the Grants are not part of the Loghrin lineage, perhaps it will provide a beginning for someone from that branch of the family.
³ William married Robena, daughter of Robert Watson and Dinah Gadd, Sept. 29, 1896 from Registrations of Marriages, 1869-1928, MS932, Reel 3 Archives of Ontario, Toronto; they farmed on the homestead in Normanby.
