In Reply to: unknown DOW (male) married unknown DANBERRY by Orville Smith of 2066

I have been researching the Danberry surname and would be interested in any additional information you may have on this family. I did a quick search for John Dow and found the following information.

IGI Record lists John Dow born 31 August 1855, Hillsborough Twp., Somerset County, New Jersey; parents Henry Dow and Terrissa.

The Stephens Family Tree by williebuck23 on has Henry Dow born January 1835, New Jersey married to Terissa P. born circa 1834, New Jersey. Children listed for them are John D. Dow born 1855, William V. Dow born 1858, died 20 March 1863, and Oscar P. Dow born September 1860, New Jersey. Parents given for Henry Dow are Folkert P. Dow (1808-1890) and Harriet Moffett (1809-1882).
