In the early 1900's, Robert migrated from the family farm in Heilbron South Africa, to farm in York, Western Australia with his parents and seven siblings. Two married siblings remained in South Africa. 

His brother, John Wesley Grant, died on June 30th, 1917 in England, from battle wounds received in France. Neither of my great uncles married.
