Sewell Dow--Seabrook NH
Posted by: Beverly Rumble (ID *****9248) Date: December 02, 2003 at 09:01:49
  of 2066

I am seeking information on the Dow family in NH. Specifically, Sewell B. Dow, b. 1820 in Seabrook, NH who married Almira (or Elmira) Robinson of Maine, daughter of Alexander Robinson and Philena Oliver.

I believe his line was Jacob1,2, Tristram3, Sewell B.4. He was probably the son of Rachel Fowler and Tristram Dow, though there is another Sewell B. Dow, born in 1827 to Elihu Dow and Rhoda Dow. 1880 census records list the spouse of Elmira as Sewell, age 60. Sewell is said in one source to have been "of Amesbury, MA"--he and Almira lived in Amesbury after their marriage.

I'm also interested in the connection with the Fowlers, as Almira's sister Emeline married a Richard Fowler, and they lived in Seabrook, NH. Their brother Hiram H. Robinson married Mary Helen Bragg, daughter of Henry Bragg, originally of Seabrook, NH. The name Bragg shows up with the Dow family also. I'd like to figure out some of the connections here, so I need your help!

Mormon records and 1880 census records reveal the following family for Sewell B. Dow and Almira Robinson:
