comment Has philosophy ever clarified mathematics?
I agree that Wittgenstein did not invent the truth tables. However, it should be added that 19th-century logicians were arguing about the character and purpose of symbolic logic putting a lot of philosophical baggage into their arguments. Frege in his Begriffsschift opposed Boole, Peirce and Schroeder. See ontology.co/two-views-language.htm for descriptions of these arguments by J. Hintikka and J. van Heijenoort.

comment A. Markov's papers?
English translation of the paper in question is available here (unfortunately, not for free): An Example of Statistical Investigation of the Text Eugene Onegin Concerning the Connection of Samples in Chains, trans. David Link. Science in Context 19.4 (2006): 591–600. Online: journals.cambridge.org/production/action/… Contrary to OP's first impression, Hayes (whose article I linked to in my earlier comment) does cite this paper by Markov.

comment A. Markov's papers?
For historical account, and possibly some answers to your questions, look at ``First Links in the Markov Chain" by Brian Hayes at americanscientist.org/libraries/documents/…
