Do you have any information on a Henry Dow of Jefferson, Maine?All I know about Henry Dow is that his second wife was Annie Gallagher.They married about 1836, when Annie was approximately 16 years old, based on the fact that their first child, Nancy Agnes Dow, was born in 1837 in New Brunswick.Their second child, James Henry Dow, was born in 1839 in New Brunswick.
Henry is listed in The Book of Dow on page 634.The only reference to his father is that his dad was 'another Dow of Perham.'Perham, Maine was not settled until 1860-62 so Henry's dad would have been older when he went to Perham.Since 'Jefferson annals' are mentioned, I am guessing Henry was born or lived in Jefferson, Maine at some point.
I don't know anything about Henry's first wife or if they had children.
Henry must have died about 1840 because Annie Gallagher married James McNeil in New Brunswick about 1842.I know that Nancy Agnes Dow was baptized in Van Buren, Maine in 1840.
Nancy Agens Dow, Henry's daughter, is not mentioned in The Book of Dow but James Henry Dow is listed as 'one child found'.
Does any of this connect ot any of your information?
