Dow Family Genealogy Forum
Leonard Brooks Dow b. 29 Sep 1830; m. 21 Feb. 1869 Sarah J. Pierce; d. 10 Mar 1899. 2 daughters, Lucy Jane and Harriet Pierce - both teachers of Springfield MA. Lucy m. George H. Cushing.
Leonard's father was Daniel Dow. Daniel was married 1st to Charlotte Farley, and 2nd to Lucy Smith. I don't have the date for the 2nd marriage, so not sure which wife was Leonard's mother.
The Dow line can be traced back to Thomas of Newbury MA - 1639. email me if interested in additional info.
