Well this is embarrassing...I should have checked my own Family Tree first before posting the other message. There is a possibility that your Charles William RIDEOUT's Father Jacob Rideout and my 3rd grt. grandmother Sophronia RIDEOUT may be siblings!The dates are slightly off but could easily be possible. In my own family tree I have Charles William RIDEOUT b. May 20, 1826 in Bath, ME who married Sarah PATTERSON on Feb. 10, 1849 in Bowdoin, ME. He was a possible Grandson of Jacob RIDEOUT and Eunice LEACH, however I can't find him listed in the Brunswick VR's. Jacob Rideout and his wife Eunice LEACH's children listed in the Brunswick, VR's did have a son named Jacob RIDEOUT born Jan. 1, 1805. This Jacob RIDEOUT, Jr. (Jr. for clarity) could have been the one who married Jane ALLEN although their marriage record is not listed in the Brunswick, VR's but they might have married in Topsham as I suggested earlier. This Jacob Rideout, Jr. is listed as having married a Miss Susan RANSOM, Intent filed April 25, 1829 in Brunswick, ME.
If this is the case then your Jacob, Jr. and my Sophronia Rideout are siblings. The dates seem to fit, but I don't see any link to the Jane ALLEN listed in the IGI records.I will have to research this a bit more. If I find out anything else, I'll be back. Jane ALLEN might have been Jacob, Jr.'s 1st wife and they had your Charles and she may have died or they divorced soon after. He then might have married 2nd to the Susan RANSOM listed in the Brunswick, VR's. Jacob, Jr. would have been age 21 in 1826 when your Charles was born so he could very well have been This Jacob, Jr. Whew, that's confusing...I'll be back if I find out more info.
