Re: Lorenzo Dow: Roadblock

In Reply to: Lorenzo Dow: Roadblock by Rick Dow of 2064

There are a number of Lorenzo Dows - but with additional information such as wife's name or names of children or siblings, it might be easier to trace him. I checked the 1880 census on the familysearch site and found a Lorenzo in North Muddy, Jasper County, Illinois with the following:
Lorenzo DOW Self 48
Susan DOW Wife 33
Elmedia DOW Dau 12
William T. DOW Son 10
Leanora DOW Dau 8
Lorenzo is listed as b. OH and the rest were all b. IL.

I then checked ths same location on 1870 census and found something that seems to be same family, but age and birth location for Lorenzo are not consistent with 1880.

Lorenzo 24
Susannah 22
Elmeda 1
Maria 12
Rachel 6
This time Lorenzo is listed as b. PA, and the rest were b. IL.

If you e-mail me with some additional details about the Lorenzo Dow family you are researching, I may be able to give you a bit of guidance. Especially helpful would be the surname of his spouse.

And finally, have you checked a death certificate for him to see if it lists his parents' names?
