In Reply to: Re: Ebenezer DOW b.1737,MA/Military Record by Rick Dow of 2066

The ancestry of Ebenezer Dow, born 12 November 1737, can be found in the "Book of Dow," by Robert Piercy Dow, 1929. Ebenezer is listed on page 398. He is also found in the "The Ancestry and Posterity of Joshua Dow of Avon, Maine," 1938, page 8. There is also a good write up on the life of Ebenezer Dow in "History of Durham, Maine" by Everett S. Stackpole. From my records (which I need to update) this is Ebenezer's line of descent:
