Abram Grant was born on August 25, 1848 into a life of slavery. He was owned by Frank Rollison, very little else is know about Grant’s earlier years.
Fed up with being a slave, Grant and his brothers Alex, Johns, and James Gray ran away. They were captured and sold in Columbus Georgia. It wasn’t long before Grant ran away again, this time he joined the Union army.
He returned to Lake City after the war, then moved to Jacksonville where he, clerked in a grocery store of former owner and spent few hours daily in a missionary school; later steward in hotels at Lake City and Jacksonville, Fla. and attended night school at Cookman Institute.
Grant became licensed to preach. He was elected the 19th Bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal Church on May 19, 1888, and ordained on May 24. Bishop Abram Grant died on Jan. 22, 1911 in Kansas City, Kansas.

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up?
I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost
a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Hi! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to
make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing
from my iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that
might be able to correct this problem. If you have
any suggestions, please share. Appreciate it!
