New York, May 13.—Mrs. Hannah Grant, widow of the late Jesse R. Grant, and the mother of General U. S. Grant, died very suddenly yesterday afternoon at her residence, No. 532 Pavonia avenue, Jersey City Heights. She was born in Doylestown, Bucks county, Pennsylvania, November 23, 1799, and was one of five children of John Simpson. A sister and a brother—both older than she—are still living in Clairmont county, Ohio. She was married to Mr. Grant, near Bethel, Ohio, on June 24, 1821, and went to housekeeping at Pleasant Point, where General Grant was born on April 17, 1822. Mrs. Grant was the mother of six children, three sons and three daughters, of whom only three, General Grant, Mrs. Cramer and Mrs. Corbin, survive her. Mr. Grant died on June 30, 1873.
