We don't know who built a home here (Rt 7B Central near the airport) or when the home ceased to be there. All that we have is a snapshot in time of who was there when the 1869 map was being compiled.  Further research will fill in more of the blanks.

In 1870 the Myron Sherwood (ca. 1840 - 1910) and Anna M. (Doty) Clark (1843 - 1917) household was there.  Myron was listed as a farmer.  With them was Myron's mother Arosina (Perkins) Clark (1810 - 1889) and their 1st child Grace (1866 - 1942).   Anna was born in Falmouth, MA and Myron was possibly born in Mendon, VT. This family came to Clarendon sometime in the 1860's from Rutland where in 1860 Myron was listed as a student and was living with his mother  grandmother Huldah (Williams) Perkins (1789 - 1864) and Kingsley cousins Moses Perkins Kingsley (1834 - 1922) & wife Helen (Duncan) Kingsley (1825 - 1908) and Moses' brother Henry (1840 - 1914).

Clarendon was but a brief stop for this family.  At some point after daughter Susie was born in Clarendon March 1873 and before son Samuel was born in Providence, RI Aug. 1875 the family moved to Providence, RI where Myron worked as a grocery clerk.  In 1876 Myron registered to vote in Alameda, CA  and by 1880 they were living in Oakland, CA where their daughter Eva was born.  At that time Myron was working as a carpenter.  In 1900 they were in Santa Rosa, Ca where he worked as a Diary Man, and in 1910 in Sonoma, CA where he had a chicken ranch.
