Can You Read It?

This comes from a early twentieth century pension file in Hancock County, Illinois. This individual was born in the 1820s in New Jersey.
Go ahead and make a guess...

Your page for 1850 U. S. Grant shows him at his residence with his father-in-law and his name grossly misspelled. In actual fact, he was not home, but he, wife Julia and infant son were on the S B Excelsior on the Mississippi. He was enumerated twice in the census, therefore, and was listed under Hugh S Grant where he actually was located. The Dents did not get the ages right, but the Grants did. I discovered this by doing a search on Julia Grant.

Your signatures are pretty easy by comparison!
