Ulysses S Grant
Born in Point Pleasant, Ohio on April 27, 1822, Hiram Ulysses Grant was the first child of Jesse Root Grant and Hannah Simpson Grant. Descended from a long line of patriots, including an ancestor who fought in the French and Indian War and a grandfather who served in the American Revolution at Bunker Hill, Grant's father was a passionate abolitionist and Whig Party supporter who worked as a foreman in a tannery. When Grant was born, his parents selected the name Ulysses from a hat, but his father later added his own name, Hiram, to his birth certificate. Ulysses S. Grant, or Hiram Ulysses Grant, was an accomplished American military leader and politician. He served as the 18th president of the United States from 1869 to 1877, and as Commanding General, he played a crucial role in leading the Union Army to victory during the American Civil War. As president, Grant was committed to civil rights and collaborated with Radical Republicans to safeguard the rights of African Americans, including the creation of the Justice Department.

I want to build a place where my son can meet his great-grandparents. My grandmother Marian Joyce (Benning) Kroetch always wanted to meet her great-grandchildren, but she died just a handful of years before my son's birth. So while she didn't have the opportunity to meet him, at least he will be able to know her. For more information about what we're building see About AncientFaces.

My father's side is full blood Sicilian and my mother's side is a combination of Welsh, Scottish, German and a few other European cultures. One of my more colorful (ahem black sheep) family members came over on the Mayflower. He was among the first to be hanged in the New World for a criminal offense he made while onboard the ship.
