My husband is a decendant of an Andrew Dow born in Scotland in the late 1700's. Married Margaret McMath in 1803. They had a son Andrew Dow Born 2-14-1813 in Scotland. He had a son William Dow born 1-4-1841 in Scotland, married Virginia Breckenridge in 12-18-1867 in Lexington Ky. They had a son William Breckenridge Dow born 10-9-1870 in Lexington KY. He died 10-9-1936 in Warrensburg MO. Maybe there is a connection.
