Farmer, teacher, and postmaster. Attended Tougaloo College. Listed on the 1880 census in Yazoo County with wife Lucinda and family. Listed on the 1900, 1910, and 1920 census in Hinds County with Lucinda and children.

In 1902, Granberry filed an application for himself and his children to be identified as Mississippi Choctaws through his mother. According to that application, he and his mother (Sallie) were not enslaved, though his father (George) was. Sallie’s mother, to Granberry’s knowledge, was a Choctaw named Betsey Cook. The application was refused based on insufficient evidence.
