Generation One

1. THOMAS1 DOW was born about 1614[2], and died on 31 May 1654[2] in Haverhill, Essex Co., Massachusetts, United States[2]. He married in Haverhill, in 1636, PHEBE LATTY, who died on 3 Nov. 1672[3] in Salisbury, Essex Co.[3]. [2]
"There is probably no immigrant to America for whose antecedents more vigorous search has been made by professional and amateur genealogists. Yet, not the slightest trace has ever been discovered. ... Thomas was none of the numerous of the name whom it was suspected that he might be. ... The antecedents of Henry Dow, immigrant of 1637, being known, the seachers began by assuming that the two were brothers or near relatives. ... They even failed to hit upon the item in Runham parish register showing that Henry Dow had a brother Thomas 14 years too old to fit the Newbury man and that this Thomas had a family and died on his inherited property in Runham. ... Henry and Thomas lived in adjoining towns and for ten years thereafter they were but 15 miles apart, without the slightest evidence that one knew of the existence of the other."[1]
