  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.
