I am looking for descendants of James Osgood Dow of Redwing, Goodhue County, MN. J.O.'s first son, James Henry Dow (b. 1866), was my great grandfather. He married Leora May Jones using the name, "King Russell" and had three sons, Clifford Jack, James Henry Osgood (my grandfather), and Adrian Fremont. James Henry had a penchant for disappearing and in 1907 he appears to have left Leora and the three boys for good in San Francisco. The 1910 Census shows Leora as married. "The History of Goodhue County" published in 1909, states that James Henry was living in CA. Ten years later Leora is listed as "widowed" on a 1920 passenger list to Hawaii.

I have two goals in making this post, 1) Does anyone know what happened to James Henry Dow? 2) I'm looking for Dow relatives in MN.
