*Lance Grant - Thanks to Jason Gaudet of Canal, NB for spotting the drastic name change for John Guy Petrie.  Jason was entering data for the Milltown Cemetery and found the marriage record in which John Guy is listed and 'known as' Lance Grant.  He was apparently raised by his aunt Mary and her husband George Grant.
