4 It all started when three brothers, Tom, Jim, and Patrick McGrann, left Armagh, in Northern Ireland to find work In England. It is RUMORED that the reason they left is because they were accused of stealing horses. They all got married in England. Jim and Patrick changed their last name to Grant, and Tom changed his name to Magrann, to appear to be English. This would allow them to find work more easily. They all came to Philadelphia in the 1850's and probably entered the textile business together. The sons of Thomas - Tom Jr., John, Peter, and James owned a textile mill at 24th and Green Streets in Philadelphia. They later moved the mill to Mascher and Turner Streets in Philadelphia. The brothers' mill operation was fairly large, with 150 looms that consisted of weaving, twisting, and winding. The business did fairly well during the next generation, especially during WWI, when there was a large demand for their materials to make uniforms.
