I would like to verify the birth date and location of Matthew Dow. The obituary lists it as July 29,1849 at the Drits ( Dripps ) 7 miles from Glasgow. He came to the USA in 1871 (his daughter was born 1874 in Glasgow)and immediately prior to locating in Seattle was a resident of Belton,Texas.His first wife,Margaret McGregor,died in Texas.His father Andrew Dow was born in the parish of Cathcart,Renfrew Scotland February 27,1814. He married Margaret Steele August 18,1848 in Carmunnock,Scotland. Matthew died in Prince Rupert,BC,Canada at the age of 63 yrs. His body was returned to Seattle.Burial date and location unknown at this time. He left four full Bro`s: David,Alexander,Harry(Henry)and Robert.He left one sister,Jessie(Dow)Lyon. Any info on this Dow family would be appreciated.
