Thanks for the kind words, Duane. I would certainly like any information that corrects erroneous material from The Book of Dow. I would also respect the wishes of anyone still living to keep their info private - so I wouldn't pass along any info on them without their permission. I lived in ME for many years, and my mother taught school in East Vassalboro, which is on China Lake - not far from China ME.I now live in NJ.
All of my Dow line is from Essex and Bristol counties in MA. I haven't really been in touch with ME Dows, except in answer to a few queries.Most of my responses are based on information from The Book of Dow, which fortunately got my line right - as least as far as I can determine. I rely on it for clues, but the information in it always should be verified independently. That's why it would be great to have any corrections.
