Julia Boggs Dent, 1826-1902

Julia Boggs Dent Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


Frederick Dent is considered to be the first white child born in Cumberland after its incorporation. He left Cumberland at the age of 21 and later became the father of Julia Boggs Dent (1826-1902). In 1848 Julia married Hiram Ulysses Grant (a.k.a. General Ulysses S. Grant), later President of the United States.

The City of Cumberland was established by the State Legislature on January 20, 1787. Sources vary between 1786 and 1787 on the year of Frederick Dent's birth. Lowdermilk's "History of Cumberland" states that Dent was born in October or November 1787.
