He married Margaret Steele August 18,1848 in Carmunnock,Scotland. Matthew died in Prince Rupert,BC,Canada at the age of 63 yrs. His body was returned to Seattle.Burial date and location unknown at this time. He left four full Bro`s: David,Alexander,Harry(Henry)and Robert.He left one sister,Jessie(Dow)Lyon. Any info on this Dow family would be appreciated.
