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

GOOD AFTERNOON. DO YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION ON SLAVES FROM BUTLER COUNTY,ALABAMA AND THE FIRST AFRICAN AMERICANS TO ATTEND TUSKEGEE ? THANK YOU
I’m trying to find Jane Gratham Howell to look at this Bible. Stephen Ganus would have been my 3rd Great Grandfather. If anyone knows how to contact her please let me know.
I am in contact with Mary Jane Grantham, Howell’s, husband Bill Howell. Mary Jane is in bad Health and does not remember anything about her research. But her husband Bill Howell could help you. his email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org Mary Jane Grantham Howell, is my Grandmother’s half sister. If you do facebook messenger, Bill is on facebook and facebook messenger and so am I. What do you know about Susannah Ganus? I am trying to find her burial place. I am assuming that she is buried next to her parents in either Pike or Covington Counties. you can email me at: Robin Robinson; email@example.com.
Stephen Ganus would have been my 4th Great Grandfather, through Susanah’s son George Sanford Grantham. DNA Shows that George Sanford Grantham’s father was a Powell. Family folklore, told by Rufus Grantham (now deceased) has always said that (Grandpa Grantham) George Sanford, was a illegitimate child. He was not raised by Richard Lewis Grantham. Richard Lewis Grantham, died in the Civil War sometime around 1862. George Sanford, was not born until 1868 or 69. If you are interested in the DNA results, email me at the email address above, I will be glad to send you the username and password.
Hope this helps
