There are three comments.
Frank Hatch Jones was my great-great-granduncle. I have a tremendous amount of biographical material about him and Nellie Grant, and the Bunn family of Chicago, if anybody is interested. Frank and Nellie Jones resided at this building. I would love to know which unit was theirs. Frank was one of the most important Chicago businessmen and politicians during the Gilded Age.

Alfred Cowles Jr. (1865-1939) lived in this building at the time of its construction. He was married to Elizabeth Cheney. He was a manager and director of the Chicago Tribune. His father, Alfred Cowles Sr (1832-1889) was the business manager and part-owner of the Chicago Tribune, who left $1.4 million to his three children. Alfred Jr had a sister named Sarah Frances Cowles and a brother named William Hutchinson Cowles (1866-1920) who founded the Spokane WA Review newspaper.

Ellen "Nellie" Wrenshall Grant Sartoris Jones, known popularly as Nellie Grant, the only daughter of U.S. Grant, married prominent Chicago banker, Frank Hatch Jones in 1912 and lived until 1922 at this address. Both Nellie's and husband, Frank's funeral services (his in 1931) were in this building. It should not be razed and its records, concerning the Jones, need to be found.
