Samuel Langhorne Clemens (Mark Twain) and his wife Olivia Langdon Clemens lived at Wave Hill, in the Riverdale section of the Bronx from October 1, 1902 until July 1903. They did take a break at a summer cottage in York Harbor , Maine for the summer of 1902. Olivia was very sick and needed to return home in Riverdale. As per doctors recommendation, a warmer climate led to a move to Italy, where she died June 5, 1904. Their son Langdon died after 19 months in June of 1872 and daughter Susan at age 24 in 1896, later Jean died at age 29 in 1909. Their daughter Clara Langhorne Clemens Gabrilowitsch June 8, 1874 – November 19, 1962 inherited the family estate.
