TRUTH !!
Jennie Churchill was born Jeanette Jerome, the daughter of an American millionaire, in
1854 in Brooklyn. She was a renowned beauty, though considered somewhat wild, as
evidenced by the tattoo of a snake entwined around her left wrist.
She married Lord Randolph Churchill and gave birth to Winston in 1874.
After Lord Randolph's death, Jennie had several notorious affairs, marrying again twice.
She died at age 67 from complications after surgery to remove a gangrenous leg.

I should have done much better. I knew most of the ones I got wrong. I'll attribute it to the fact that it is almost 4:00 a.m. and I haven't gone to bed yet (*forgetting to mention that I do that almost every night*).
