Thank you so much for not only replying to my query, but for sending pictures of the
obituaries for Ulysses S. Grant, the one who died in 1956 and the one who died in 1971.
The one who died in 1971 is a relative, but I'm not sure of the one who died in 1956.
Again--THANK YOU so much for your being so thoughtful in taking pictures of the obits!!!!
My Grant line is the hard one for me to research, for my great grandfather, William
Grant, was killed, supposedly, on the steamboat Burlington while carrying the payroll for
his troops--Aug 31, 1864--and sent overboard. His service records only give his age, no
birthdate, and place of birth as Edinburgh, Scotland. Thought if I could find some other
living family, they might have some information I don't have. Every clue is
