Also ancestors of Samuel Clark, b: unknown probably in the early 1800s, married to Fannie (?), birthdate unknown, again probably early 1800s.Samuel is the father of Mary Clarke, who married Frederick Rideout in 1859.
Frederick's marriage to Mary Clarke is shown in "Part 1: Twillingate Methodist Marriages (1853-1870): From Parish Records, Box 2, Panl."Witnesses at the wedding were Samuel Clark and George House, leaving one to believe there might be a connection to the House family too.
