Where, Oh Where, Are Nina’s Heirs? Part II: George Wrentmore

Another fellow mentioned in the will of Mark Twain’s granddaughter Nina was George Wrentmore.   I find no mention of him in any previous letters of hers or eleswhere.  There was a George C Wrentmore who was born about 1898 who was living in Detroit, Michigan in the 1930 census.  That makes it possible that he was a childhood friend of Nina’s.  That George was the son of Clarence and Mary Wrentmore.  There was also a George J Wrentmore born aound 1918 who was living in Trumbull County, Ohio with parents Wilbur and Mary at the time of the 1930 census.  Ironically, both George’s died in California.  The Michigan born George died 3 May 1965 in Los Angeles and the Ohio George on 14 Mar 1985 in San Bernanrdino.  Does anyone know anything about either of those two George Wrentmores?

    The George Wrentmore you speak of…the one who died, on May 3rd 1965, was my Grandfather. According to my parents. He and Nina had a long relationship. My Mother and Father both new her. I’m told that I was taken on a few visits to see her, but I don’t remember these, as I was very young.
