Posted by: Daniel S, Dow Date: April 26, 1998 at 22:38:47
  of 2066

I keep hititng dead ends.

I am looking for my g grandfather's family. ELIAS LORENZO
DOW m. ANNE MARY SHOWERS in Mowequea, Shelby Co. Ill on July
24, 1877.

Elias was born in Indiana April 4 1855.
Anna was born in Penn. Sept 13 1857.

I am told Elias moved to Illinois as a small boy. He had
brothers and sister:

Enoch Dow
Jim Dow
Samantha (married a Jones) Dow
Another sister who married a Howse/House
(There may have been more)

I am looking for Elias's parents. Enoch had a son named Ben
who was living in Mowequea, Shelby Co. as of 1951. I understand
he was a WWI veteran.

Your Help is Appreciated!
Daniel S.Dow
