Katherine, Thanks for the quick reply. I am thinking of the possibility that your Andrew Dow could be a son or grandson of mine. I have found Andrew not to be very common in the Dow family names, so we may have a connection. I don't have very much info on my Andrew. He is the brother of my G.G.GrFather John Dow c. 1806 Echt Scotland. I am trying to find a link to the family of Andrew and their other brother William Dow.Denise.
