One addition to “GRANT – Kenneth G.”

  1. Kenneth Huggins adds:

    My mother, Monica Muriel Seheult Huggins, grew up in the West Indies, primarily in Trinidad-Tobago. Her family, the Seheults, were good friends with the Grants, and Ken Grant was one of her childhood chums. He was one of many dear friends she lost during WWII. I am the namesake of Kenneth Grant.

    By the way, the year of death given above is probably a typo. He died in 1941, not 1944. As far as I know, all the other information is correct.

    Thank you for establishing this Web site.
