I am looking for relatives of Elizabeth Gow. She was born 22 Aug 1839 in Dundee, Scotland. She married Nelson Upson in 1866 in St. Joseph. Nelson had just returned from the Civil War. Elizabeth (Gow) Upson raised her four children and died in Berrien County. She died in 1917 in Berrien Township on her farm. Her children were: 1. EllaNora (Elinor) Upson who married Albertus McAllister and died in Benotn Harbor in 1947. One of her two daughters married Edward Simpson and hd three or four sons. Her other daughter appears to have never married. 2. Carrie J. Upson who married William Lucker and died in California,3. Nelson Upson who died unmarried in Berrien County and 4. William Edward Upson who died in Oronoko Township. I have quite a detailed listing of the Upsons but am interested in how Elizabeth Gow got to Berrien County, when she immigrated and where she entered the Country. Elizabeth seems to have been in the Auxiliary of the GAR. Does anyone know of any others by the Gow name in Berrien County? Are there GAR records available from Berrien County? William Edward Upson was my great grandfather. Elizabeth (Gow) Upson my great great grandmother.
