Birth: 1834
Death: 1908

Jane Clemens, mother of Samuel Clemens, was living with her son Orion when she revealed to him in 1886 her "curious and pathetic romance" with Mr. Barret 64 years earlier. At the time, Dr. Barret was a medical student living in Columbia, Kentucky and would ride 18 miles to visit Jane. During their courtship, her uncle Lewis Lampton refused to drive her to a party where Richard was to propose marriage to her. Soon after that Richard left the country and Jane married someone else.
