On This Date in Minnesota History: September 14

September 14, 1910 – Ulysses S. Grant, son of President Grant, is a guest at the home of Lieutenant Ulysses S. Macy, navy recruiting officer in Minneapolis. Mr. Grant is Mrs. (Miriam) Macy’s father and his visit is brought about by his desire to see his new baby grandson, Grant, for the first time. Mr. Grant is an attorney in San Diego, Cal.

The Minneapolis Morning Tribune
; “Son of U. S. Grant in City.”; Sept. 14, 1910; p. 7.

Yes, I checked; Mrs. Macy married a man who had the same name and middle initial as her father and grandfather.

Ulysses S. Grant, Jr.


If you are interested in finding out more about your family history in Minnesota, I specialize in researching  genealogical and historical records in Minn. and western Wis., including:
census records,  birth records,  death certificates, obits, grave site photos, ship passenger lists, marriage records and declarations of intent/naturalization records.  I will visit locations to research local history and county records, as well as take photos. Quick turnaround on MNHS records. Both short searches and family history reports available.
