Have lineage of this lady Dorothy Catherine Smith back, but am trying to prove her marriage to my great great grandfather John Clow b. 1803 in Highgate, VT just across the line from Philipsburg.
John died in 1853 and Catherine moved to Paxton, IL and Chicago.She was in Chicago in the 1880 census I know they married, but just don't have any documents from back then in Quebec & Vermont.
She is also shown as Catherine Dorothy Smith Clow. and used the name Catherine S. Clow in the 1880 census.
There is a John Clow in the 1790 census and 1800 census of Highgate, VT, but don't know if it is my GrGr Grandfather's father or not.Lots of Clows running around.
My Clow line from John Clow B. 1803 who's wife was Catherine Smith goes to my great grandfather Lester Hardick Clow, who also moved west and remarried after his wife Adella Jane Taft died in childbirth.My Grandfather Byron Lee Clow who married Rose Emily Scott in New Sharon, Iowa.
I've more information on the line if anyone's interested.Curious about John Clow's line, where the middle names of Hardick and Lee came from.
