American Social Figure. Nicknamed "Nellie", she was the third child and only daughter of President Ulysses S. Grant and First Lady Julia Dent Grant. She married English Army officer Algernon Charles Frederick Sartoris at the White House in Washington, DC on May 21, 1874 during President Grant's second administration. The couple lived in England and had four children before divorcing in 1893. When Algernon Sartoris died later that year, he left her a vast fortune. She returned to America, and eventually married Frank Hatch Jones, a Chicago, Illinois banker whose family was from Springfield, on July 4, 1912. She was immortalized in a poem titled "Nellie" written by Eugene Field at the time of her father's death.
