Ellen M. Dow (Griffin ?) Overlock - Freedom Waldo Co.
Posted by: Mark Overlock (ID *****1493) Date: September 02, 2002 at 13:22:15

Looking for more information on Ellen Margaret Dow. Ellen was born 20 September 1861 in Palermo, Waldo Co., Maine. She married William Artell Overlock on 19 August 1878 in Palermo. Ellen died on 20 December 1939 at Freedom, Waldo Co., Maine.

Ellen was my great grand mother. Her parents names was Daniel Dow and Mary E. Merithew. Daniel Dow was born c.1805. And Mary Merithew was born 03 May 1821.

Ellen Margaret Dow had two sisters and one brother. They were.

Geneva H. Dow, born c. 1846 in probably Freedom, Waldo Co.,Maine , died (unknown date), married Elbridge Griffin on 26 Dec 1866 in Freedom, Waldo Co., Maine.

Amanda Dow, born & died unknown dates. No marriage information.

David T. Dow, born circa Feb 1850, died (unknown), married Georgia Ella Leighton on 21 Dec 1873 in Freedom, Waldo Co., Maine.

I have some reason to believe that Ellen Margaret may have been married to a "Griffin" either before or after the marriage to William Artell Overlock.

Apparently some family sources claim that she was married to a Griffin at one time. But I have not be able to find out if this is true or not. The same family sources claim that there was children from that marriage. In which case I would have blood line relatives possibly living today.

So, I seek information on the marriage (if there was one) of Ellen Margaret Dow to an unknown Griffin.

Possibly related to Geneva's husband, Elbridge Griffin. Any help or clues will be most useful.

Thank you,

Mark Overlock
