It was quite a surprise to find your request for information on Clyde W. Dow Sunday night 7/14/02.I am also seeking information about how he died.He was for three and half years my father. I had no idea about you and your mother because Mormon records have him still married to my mother, Laura Clifford Chase of East Limington, Maine.(She divorced him in 1954 after he abandoned us in late 1953.She died in a car crash 12/5/70 in Intercession City, FL.)I get the impression from your request that he did the same thing to you and your mother. I don't know if you ever got to see his mother's home in Limington or not but the last time I was there in 1966 it looked like an abandoned museum.I never did know Myrtle very well, but she lived like Miss Havisham in "Great Expectations".I also don't know if you were aware that Clyde had a sister.Marian King lived in Cornwells, PA and died of cancer 4/19/98.I contact her husband occassionally and have told him about you and your mother. I am not claiming to be some long lost brother of yours or anything, as you are apparently his natural son and I was adopted in late March or early April of 1950 (I am 52). There are a few things I would like to know from you to fill in the last 49 years.I am sure that you must have a few questions for me too. I can be reached at, Bssplyr50@aol.com.
I look foward to hearing from you. George Larrabee Dow New Port Richey, Florida.
