CDV of Jesse Root Grant, seated, facing left with backmark by J.W.Black, Washington St. Boston. Of course, Jesse is best known for being the father of Ulysses S. Grant. ... When Ulysses S. Grant was sworn in as President, Jesse was standing nearby, as Chief Justice Salmon Chase administered the Oath of Office, March 4, 1869. Before the inauguration, Jesse had inquired about lodging for himself, where Ulysses informed him that his extra rooms had been promised to friends. Some historians suggest that Ulysses at this time was on uneasy terms with his father and made no further effort to secure lodging for Jesse and family.
