Joyce, This Dow family is the same one I gave in my earlier reply based on information from The Book of Dow. However, the book lists 9 children for Henry and Rebecca, and you say there were 8. If the book is wrong, I'd like to make a note of it. Although the book provides a lot of interesting and accurate information, like all such compilations it has its share of errors. I do try to keep track of any I come across.The book lists Polly, Elisha, Asa, Henry, Benjamin, John, Nathan, Asa, and Rebecca. Possibly the confusion is in the two named Asa. The first is listed with a birth date27 Jan 1792. He died young. The 2nd Asa was b. 8 May 1803. He died 12 Nov 1815. I have no independent information to support these names or dates. Thanks for any clarification you can provide.
