Other Twining snippets
'It is possible but not confirmed George Twining 3 is a nephew of Daniel Twining, Banker and Tea Merchant. Many years ago I exchanged details with Sam Twining of the tea family. He got me back to 1726, from there it all a fuzzy mixture with no substantiated evidence.'
''My late Grandmother (Lilian Twining as was) had an Uncle Henry Twining who went to Colorado in 1870 and his daughter Clara married a son of White Bear (nephew of Sitting Bull) real people who just escaped the genocide at Wounded Knee.'
