Ask Twain Q & A:
Q: I heard that not only was Mark Twain born in Hannibal, but so was "The Unsinkable Molly Brown." ... Is that true?
A: "Mark Twain was actually born in Florida, Mo., on Nov. 30, 1835 and moved to Hannibal, Mo., in 1839. However, Molly Brown, survivor of the Titanic disaster, was born in Hannibal. Obviously, Hannibal's more notable resident is Mark Twain and Mrs. Brown's home can be found on Mark Twain Avenue."
