Ganus Family Bible of Covington County, Alabama. Contributed by: Jane Grantham Howell in March of 2000.

Stephen and Miriam Ganus came from North Carolina around 1835-40 to Pike County, Alabama. Some of his children went to Texas in the 1870’s. Other Ganus’s moved to Covington County (don’t know when). The George Sanford Grantham family and the William Richard Grantham family left Pike County in 1911 to settle in Covington County.

Spellings are as they were in the Bible record: Grantom of course is Grantham
