      Various mentions in Balltown Records
    • The book of Dow : genealogical memoirs of the descendants of Henry Dow 1637, Thomas Dow 1639 and others of the name, immigrants

      p 615
      Peter Dow enlisted in the 2nd foot company for the Lake George Expedition and drew pay L28 19 May 1755. He m Hampstead
      30 October 1759 Elizabeth Huse. First born was at Plaistow, then the family disappears from the place. History of Essex County notes a tradition that a Dow was an original settler of Jefferson, Maine, but knows no name...Census 1790 clinches the matter giving in Ballston Peter Dow Sr 1a 2b 2c and Peter Dow Jr 1a 1b 2c.
      [Children]
      ...
      Peter Dow is progenitor of almost every Jefferson Dow. He m Mary Kennedy, a Scotch Presbyterian, doubtless an immigrant after 1783. As she was a woman of much character, all descendants agree about her identity...
