I wonder if she is an ancestor of Hale Boggs, Cokie Roberts' father. Her mother was Lindy Boggs, ambassador to the Vatican a long time ago.

I can't find where the Boggs bit came from. Here's one rather thin reference
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julia_Grant
which led me to discover that you can get her memoirs from upwards of five bucks, used, eight ninety five new.

I am curious to hear her voice.
