Miss Marple's family?

In the short story, 'The Four Suspects,'  of 'The Thirteen Problems' I was suprised to learn that she had a sister. Apart from Nephews and Nieces, is there any other reference of her family?

    Yes, there are many references– albeit fleeting ones– to Miss Marple's family throughout the canon.  Anne Hart expanded upon the dozens of references to compose The Life and Times of Miss Jane Marple.  Her beloved uncle is mentioned in "Strange Jest."  Cousin Fanny (who had a pronounced stutter) is referenced in At Bertram's Hotel.  Though Hart thinks Miss Marple has only one sister, "The Thumb Mark of St. Peter" indicates that Miss Marple had at least two sisters.  Another reference indicates that Miss Marple's father was probably a clergyman.

    That would explain why Tuppence's Father is an Archdeacon.
