From the Los Angeles Herald January 18, 1899:

"G. W. Dent Dead Brother-in-Law of the Late General Grant

"Oakland, Jan. 17. George W. Dent, brother-in-law of General U. S. Grant and uncle of U. S. Grant, jr., candidate for United States senator, died today at his home in Lorin from pneumonia, which caused heart failure. He was 79 years old. For sixteen years Mr. Dent was appraiser of customs at San Francisco. He was appointed by President Grant, and held office until retired by President Cleveland. Mr. Dent came to California in 1852, engaging in mining in Calaveras county. He represented San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties in the state senate in 1858, and later was interested in mining properties in Tuolumne county. He leaves a widow and a daughter."

Note: Lorin is now part of Berkeley, CA
