Jennie Clemens

 

Daughter of Orion and Molly Clemens and beloved niece of Mark Twain, Jennie Clemens born in 1855.  When the family moved to Nevada she attended the Sierra Seminary in Carson City which Twain wrote a piece about after visiting there.  Jennie fell ill to spotted fever on January 29, 1864 and died of meningitis, a complication of the illness, on February 1, 1864.  Twain and her parents had stood vigil around her bedside until she died praying the Lord's Prayer with her asking for recovery.  The couple did not have any other children.
