Info"Nellie" Ellen Wrenshall Grant (July 4, 1855 - August 30, 1922), was the third child and only daughter of General of the Army and President of the United States, Ulysses S. Grant and First Lady Julia Grant.

She was first named Julia, at the insistence of her father, but was christened Ellen at eighteen months to honor her dying grandmother.

She married Englishman Algernon Charles Frederick Sartoris (August 1, 1851-February 3, 1893), the son of opera singer Adelaide Kemble and nephew of noted actress and anti-slavery activist Fanny Kemble, on May 21, 1874 in the East Room of the White House. She remarried again, this time to Frank Hatch Jones (d. August 30, 1922) on July 4, 1912.

She was born July 4, 1855 and died August 30, 1922. Nellie was 13 years old when her father became president and only 18 when she was married to the British diplomat Algernon Sartoris (pronounced "sartriss") in a extravagant White House wedding. The young couple had four children and became social elite's. Her husband turned out to be an alcoholic and womanizer. She obtained a divorce, returning to the States, a wealthy woman. Eventually, she remarried, but fell ill and was paralyzed during her last years.
