I have John Lorenzo Dow b.15 April 1799 Windham Co. Conn. m. Harty Ellis, had 9 children all boys. They went first to Indiana, then to Cumberland Co. Il. Due to a fire at the Cumberland Co. Il. courthouse and the dispersement of the family, much of the family is not known.Some are thought to have gone west.Could these two families be connected? My ancestor is his son John Lindsey Dow, would be interested in sharing info on any other family members.
