Are You Related to Mark Twain?

Posted by admin on Nov 30, 2012

Samuel Langhorne Clemens was born in Florida, Missouri, on November 30, 1835. He was the son of Jane (née Lampton; 1803–1890), a native of Kentucky, and John Marshall Clemens (1798–1847), a Virginian by birth. His parents met when his father moved to Missouri and were married several years later, in 1823.

I know that Samuel Clement use to come visit my grand grandmother Caggie Melissa Clements Joiner, but I do not know how to trace my relationship back.

I know my great grandmother Caggie Melissa Clements Joiner and Mark Twain were related. I would love to know how.
