Would like to connect with the Dow family from Morgan Co., IN.
1st Lt William E. Dow US Army Armed Forces WWII casulty. Birth:Jan. 13, 1921 Death:Apr. 16, 1945
Just got my report back from the MtDNA sample I sent to the Armed Forces DNA registry in December.Mitochondrial DNA was needed in order to some day help identify the remains of my second cousin on my mother's Butler family side.The Army tracked me down for MtDNA because of a request from a relative of William E. Dow to identify his remains, if they findthem one day.Very interesting process.The report was sort of understandable (not really).There are currently 10,428 family reference sequences in the Army's Family Reference Database (DNA data base).They reviewed 1124 bases (DNA talk) and they have observed my sequence in the mitochondrial database 278 times.Hope this helps.He was from Paragon, IN.I never knew my maternal grandmother or the sister (Bertha Butler Dow) who was his mother.
