The Closs family that I am researching came from Ahoghill in Co. Antrim, Ireland in 1818. I know that there were other Closs/Close families in Grenville County, Ontario. My wife's great great grandfather lived in Prescott for about 5 years.While I was doing research on him, I discovered a widow Closs had applied for free land. This information was in the land grant records.However, I have not been able to make a connection between her and my wife's great great grandfather.
