Here is how I Thought about the clues :

Ulysses Grant was a General in the Union Army,he was the 18th American president for a period of 8 years and he lived for 63 years
Cary Grant was the male main actor in Alfred Hitchcocks North to Northwest...a spy thriller
2 of..refers to the 2 doggies...man's best friend this reference was first ever made by Frederick the Great of Prussia
Miss..fail to reach,notice or make contact
Y...thumbs up according to Microsoft Network
Missy ..term possibly used in an affectionate or disparaging manner for a young lady.

Phew hope this all makes sense!

Yes Renier :D , You are correct :thumbs_up: :clap: :clap: :clap: .

These boots are not made for walking only but think what the foot inside does - Stamp one’s foot in disapproval

Born a month later than expected - The novelist Jane Austen was born a month later than her parents expected

And then …… Time will explain - It is a well-known quote form the Jane Austen novel Persuasion

Archetypal feral child but not related to born a month later than expected – Tarzan King of the Jungle is a fictional character, an archetypal feral child raised in the African jungle by the Mangani great Apes and his true love was Jane

He who had to leave in search of his one true love – Tarzan left the jungle in search of his one true love Jane

A penny or two pence - The first stamp the "Penny Black", became available for purchase on 1 May 1840

Black and Blue - Two days later on 8 May 1840 the “Two Pence Blue” stamp was introduced

4000 and 4001 - The postal codes for Durban where Stampajane, the forum member resides as indicated in her avatar

Die mutter, um 1911 painting - Some sleuth work required here - Giovanni Giacometti was a Swiss painter and he was born in Stampa, Switzerland.

= Stampajane which is the alias of the forum member.
