About Jesse Root Grant

Jesse Root Grant (February 6, 1858–June 8, 1934), the youngest son of President of the United States Ulysses S. Grant and Julia Grant, was a miner and entrepreneur.

Born near St. Louis, Missouri, he studied engineering at Cornell University. He settled in California and in the 1890s was an early developer of Tia Juana now Tijuana, Mexico, as a gambling resort. He abandoned the party of his father to become a Democrat and in 1908 was a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination. He wrote "In the Days of My Father General Grant" (1925).

In 1880, he married Elizabeth Chapman (1860 - 1942), who was from a prominent family in San Francisco. Her father was William Chapman, one of the founders of the California Academy of Sciences. They had two children:
