My uncle gave me a copy of his family tree to share on the internet.The reason I bring the Dauer spelling to this site is as the story goes, the original name from France was Dauer, but the spelling got transformed by Joseph Dower, in the 1870-80's when he registered to vote and it was supposedly spelled as it sounded.
