Born - April 7, 1850 - Wisconsin

Married - 1877

Died - September 13, 1946

Family History Claims that Ellen was a Descendent

of Ulysses S. Grant

George E. Dye's Obituary states  that Ellen's Sister

was a distant Relative of President Grant.

I have not been able to prove  this Relationship.

Hollis Ohm shared a story of her bragging to

Grade School Friends, that she was related to

President Grant.

Hollis's Grandmother Ellen said

" I wouldn't be bragging about that, because

Ulysses S. Grant was nothing but a drunkard."

Grant's drinking has even been disputed by many people.
