George Clemens Melrose, California
I am looking for information regarding my g-grandfather, George Clemens Melrose who was born in Dayton OH on April 8, 1849 and died on March 23, 1923 in Gardena, CA.
He was married to Martha Parsons in Indiana in 1849 and had several children, five of whom survived him:Herman Melrose of Los Angeles; Mrs. Gertrude Bley of Glendale, Mrs. Stella Lander of Redlands; Mr. Cover C. Melrose of Bakersfield, and Mr. W.S. Melrose of Los Angeles.
I am trying to find out exactly how the family is related to Samuel Langhorne Clemens (Mark Twain).If anyone has any information, please feel free to contact me.
