Last week I got into a conversation on the Virginia Roots list
about the circuit-riding preacher, Lorenzo Dow. Lots of us have a Lorenzo
Dow 'Somebody' in our data. Since I have a lot of information about the
'original' Lorenzo Dow, they asked if I would post a web page about him. (He
was born in 1777 in CT and died in 1834 in Georgetown, DC.)
Well, I ran home from work and put up the Lorenzo Dow page after
supper! I hope you find it interesting. He was something! I can just see
him jumping out of a church window onto a horse and riding away shouting
that he would be back one year from the day! He did, too!
The site is: http://www.acun.com/dentons The link to the article
about Lorenzo Dow is about half way down the first page.
I hope you enjoy the stories!
