Hannah Simpson Grant
Birth: Nov. 23, 1798
Montgomery County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: May 11, 1883
Jersey City
Hudson County
New Jersey, USA

Mother of Ulysses S. Grant, Civil War Union General and 18th President of the United States. She married Jesse Root Grant on June 25, 1821 in Point Pleasant, Clermont County, Ohio, and died of old age at her home on No. 582 Pavonia Avenue in Jersey City, New Jersey. Considered to be distant and lacking in motherly affection towards her son Ulysses, she is seldom mentioned in his papers. She is buried near her husband.


The Weekly Pantagraph, May 18,1883.

She was the mother of six children, three of whom are now living, Mrs. Corbin, U. S. Grant and Mrs. Kramer, wife of the present United States minister to Switzerland. The funeral services will be held to-morrow afternoon at her late residence. The interment will take place in the family plot at Spring Grove cemetery. Cincinnati, O.
