(G-...-L497-...-S23438 Switzerland. 1700's with tempered confidence) (mtDNA to France,, with tempered confidence)



Jeff was born to Charles Edward Clark and Wilda Louise Guillow about 9 months after the blizzard of '62. Coincidentally, around 1973 there were three Jeff's with birthdays Sep. 5, 6, and 7 running the streets of New Capehart in Bangor!

For reasons that will remain his own, Charles left around then and Wilda worked nights. Jeff was known to half wake her, say he was going to ... fishing, and leave with her not remembering. "..." was usually ten miles out of town by bike with a couple other 12 year olds.

It was a different world in the 60's and 70's.

Again, coincidentally, he was probably trespassing on land once owned by his great, (great, great...) grandfathers, great uncles, etc. - the Clarks, Lancasters, and Bubiers of Kenduskeag Plantation and the Ohio Settlement - over 200 years ago.

Jeff fell in with a bad crowd - engineers and science types, every one of them - and was gainfully employed in engineering as a junior in high school. Take no pity on him though, for he also ran a still in Mr. Johnson's chem lab at Bangor High and white lightning may have left the premises - and come back on dance night.

His mother remarried and the stepfather's insanity was soon proven by his desire to adopt Jeff and four younger siblings - each more of a handful than those before them!

Ancestry / Ethnicity (if there is such a thing)

From Y line to mt line: Swiss-German (Sutter), German (Ruthardt), English/Irish (Clark), Irish/English (Fahey), Bretagne (Guillou), English/French (Elliot), English/Dutch (Foster), French/Quebecois (Charette).

The Swiss came to America from Basel in 1830's during the civil war in Switzerland. The Ruthardts came from Baden Wurtemburg in 1849. The Clark ancestry is speculative before 1777, when Ichabod was born in Maugerville, Nova Scotia (now New Brunswick) to rebels originally from the New England colonies. Common statements tie them to the Joseph Clark of Medfield, Mass. The Faheys are Irish by way of Charlotte, New Brunswick. The first known Guillou in my tree came from Bretagne in 1775 and joined the rebellion the next year. The Elliots came into New England from Canada in the late 1800's. The Fosters were Tories that left America in 1783 and settled the lands on the St John river vacated by the rebellious Clarks. They came back to Maine in 1903.

Ichabod Clark made it to what is now Bangor, Maine and married well to the daughter of Elihu Lancaster who had Plantagenets in his tree.

The Charettes, Miville dite Deschesnes, Ouellets, Bouchards, Blanchettes, Pelletiers, St. Pierre dit Desaints, Parents, Mivilles, Thibaults, Corbins, Dionne's Cloutiers, Sauciers, Mignier dite Lagases, Levesques, Morneaus, Grondins, Marquis, Carons, Talons, Soucy dite Lavignes, Sauvognes, Fouquereaus, Grossons, Michels, Lefebvres, Langlois, Mignot, Choinard, Valin, Jean, Favreau, Gillette, de Baiillon, etc. include 13 filles du rois. One of these is Lady Marie Catherine de Baillon.

Hi, Jeff. I looked at your tree to see if your New England Clarks are related to any of my New England Clarks. Apparently they aren't. But we're probably related in some way...

And I do want to comment on something I noticed in your profiles. You're in the habit of using two-letter postal abbreviations for the states and for Canada. Please don't. Please spell out the names. Not everyone in the world will know what abbreviations like ME and NH mean (not even all Americans!), and abbreviations like CA can be ambiguous (Canada or California?). So it's best to use the full names. Thanks!
