Lorenzo Dow and Sallie show up in the 1880 census for Russell County:

DW# 344, Family #356, Elk Garden Twp, p. 43
Vencill, Dow L. 52 Farmer VA
Sarah J. 44 Wife Keeping House VA
James Wade 22 Son Farm Hand VA
Almarine 19 Son Farm Hand VA
Eliza Jane 18 Daug VA
Lorenzo D. 14 Son Farm Hand VA
Joseph 10 Son Farm Hand VA
Thomas 7 Son VA
Beverly 5 Son VA
Crocket 2 Son VA

He aslo shows up in the 1870 Russell census with a duaghter Lucy aged 14 and in the 1860 census with a son William aged 6 and Lucy 4. In 1880 then William would have been 26 and Lucy 24. There is a Lorenzo D. in the 1850 Daviess County, KY census. I don't know if this makes sense or not to be the same person. Also in 1850 there is a Ln. D. Vincill age 23 in Tazewell County listed as a cabinet maker in a household with several other cabinet makers including a Philip Vincill. Also in 1850 there is a Lorenzo D. Vincell age 24 in the William Vincell household listed as a farmer. I believe that Lorenzo's father was either Lorenzo Dow Sr. or William V. Vencill, probably William - both sons of Lewis and Cristena Vencill. Do you have any information on this? It is definitely difficult to cull out of the census information alone. When was Eliza Jane born and when did she marry? Hope this helps.
