I have a Daniel Stratton Stowe, born in Ohio in 1835, he was a masoner by trade but worked for the railroad.His daughter, Margaret, married Charles Perry, who also worked for the railroad.Charles Perry writes on his marriage application that he is from Texas.It might be a coincidence. My Stowes are from Ohio, Connecticut, Maine, Massechusetts. They have been in the US since about 1640, real Pilgrams I guess.
In researching, I found a census with Amos Stowe.1850 Liberty Township, Deleware County, Ohio.This Amos was born around 1845. There are names in the family, Daniel, William, that make me think that they are probably cousins somewhere.This Daniel is too old to be my Daniel.
Let me know if this is the family you are looking for.
