Note on Quarles Family relationship to Mark Twain

The Jackson Co. Family History Book: 200 Years of Memories (Jackson Co. [Tennessee] Hist. Soc.--1996) White Plains, Tennessee.

There is an interesting relationship with John Adams Quarles and the family of Mark Twain. John A. Quarles married Patsy Lampton, a sister of Jane Lampton who was married to John Marshall Clemens of Jackson Co. Mr. Clemens is described in John Oscar Blackney's book, The Quarles and Some Collaterals, as "a good enough sort of fellow, a dreamer of dreams that never came true, and a financial and business failure." John and Patsy Quarles moved to Florida, Missouri, about 1830. His record as a farmer and merchant marked him a notable man, full of humor, thoroughly reliable and resourceful. He was elected county judge of Monroe Co., Missouri. The Clemens family joined the Quarles family in Missouri in 1832, and thus Florida, Missouri, became the birthplace of Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain). Samuel Clemens spent his boyhood summers enjoying the hospitality of his Uncle John's family. He hunted, fished, and engaged in all the sports of that era in a new country. Many legends survive of John A. Quarles' whimsical humor, and some of his stories have been immortalized in the literature of his distinguished nephew. This association, together with the slaves on the Quarles plantation, provided the seed that was to produce ideas for some of Mark Twain's stories. This connection is probably why Samuel Clemens wrote some of his early works under the pen name "Thomas Jefferson Snodgrass."

Citing from Wikipedia:

Florida was destined to remain a small village attending to the commerce needs of area farmers. The Clemens family, seeking better opportunities, left Florida for Hannibal, Missouri, when young Samuel was around five years old. He would continue to visit Florida for extended summer vacations at his uncle John Quarles' farm. Such summer memories and social interactions with Quarles house servants formed many of the sketches and perspectives that Clemens placed in his novels. The Quarles farmhouse remains as an active archeological project available to the public near Florida.
