Her (Margaret Bixby Hester) great grandfather Horace Bixby, was Captain of a Mississippi River Boat. His father in law Edwin Sheble owned and operated 24 Mississippi River boats. Horace Bixby taught Mark Twain to pilot a Mississippi River boat and is affectionately referred to by Mark Twain in all of his books on life on the Mississippi River. Mark Twain had decided to devote his life to being a pilot on the Mississippi River until the Civil War broke out. He brought the last steam boat into St. Louis. Sometime thereafter he took up writing.
