Re: Dow- Strafford Vermont
1860 Strafford VT census has Solon age 4 in home of Royal Dow, 42 and Susan Dow 34.There are other children in the household, including Susan A. age 8.

Royal was a blacksmith, and according to The Book of Dow, was b. 14 July 1817, son of Daniel Dow and Polly Day.
The 1850 census also has Royal and Susan Dow - with the 2 oldest of the children who appear in the 1860 census - so it seems likely that these are the parents of Solon.
I will email you with additional information on the ancestors of Daniel.
