Peter Grant, Founder of St. Vincent?

Although a brief biography says Peter Grant established an early fur trading post in "Pembina", according to other sources it was actually on the site of modern-day St. Vincent where the post was located...
"...There had been a North West Company post established in 1794 by Peter Grant on the ground where St. Vincent, Minnesota, now stands; Alexander Henry mentions this as the first post established by the North West Company on the Red River."
