Thank you for your offer to help with my Clemens ancestry.
I am anxious to hear what you learn from your Grandmother. I am almost sure my Clemens/Clements/Clemons ancestors came from VA to TN then KY and MO.
My relatives also claim a distant relationship to the legendary Mark Twain. I must admit that it would be wonderful to find proof of that ancestry, but mostly I would just like to know how my John Charles Clemens b 1850? came into this world. He first appears in historical records as a "apprentice" of a Garner Parmley in Wayne County KY 1860.
The Virginia Clemens connection comes from the 1920 census records showing John Charles Clemens father born VA mother born in KY.
