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.
