Youngest son of Mjr.Thomas Montgomery and Sarah Purnell Montgomery, named for his father's Civil War idol, U.S. President and General Ulysses S. Grant. Major Thomas Montgomery once saw General Grant in review and was so impressed with the man and with the "righteousness of the cause" of the Civil War that he named his last son for Grant. Thomas Montgomery was an ardent abolitionist and believed strongly in the preservation of a slave free Union.
Son Grant was born in St. Peter, MN, attended local schools. After years of work in real estate, he retired to San Cablos, Calif. where he died in 1952.
