Dow Family Genealogy Forum
My grandfather, Charles Herbert Dow, had a younger sibling who is noted in a family bible as "Fredora Dow (born) June 14, 1873". In the 1880 census of Palermo, Fredora is listed as the 6-year-old daughter of Susan Dow, but there are some discrepancies as to Susan's middle initial (my records show it should have been "L", but the census has "J" and also gives Susan's age as 22 when she should have been 27, so I'm not entirely sure whether or not the information as to the sex of Fredora is correct. The child in a tin print photo I have appears to be a male.
Robert P. Dow noted this person in The Book of Dow as Fred B. Dow, a barber in Wilmot, NH. Although there was a Fred B. Dow in the same area at about the same time, he appears to be from another branch of the family. There is also a Fred A. Dow in the area of about the same age, but he also is from another branch of the family. I haven't found any references to a Fredora Dow anywhere yet, nor have I found anything indicating an early demise.
Please email me at email@example.com if you have anything on this person.
