(Note: Thomas and Ruth may also have had a daughter Ann. She married in 1855 John (probably Jonathan) Tibbo. Their daughter Madeline Tibbo of Hare Harbour, born around 1856, married in 1872 Samuel Chalker, 28, of Samuel and Ann, Bay East or Burin. Witnesses were James Skinner, Jane Holman and Elizabeth Tibbo. It is hard to tell for sure who Ann was, but the fact that they were at Hare Harbour and Grand John points to the probability that she was another daughter of Thomas and Ruth.)
