George Carr Dow

George Dow was apparently mustered into service on 16 Apr 1861 as a 2nd Lieutenant in Company E 40th New York Volunteer Infantry. He also served with Company B 40th NYVI and Company D 62nd Massachusetts Infantry. It is unclear with which unit he was serving but he suffered a gun shot wound in the right hand and left thigh at the battle of Chancellorsville. He was returned to duty and mustered out 26 May 1865. He married Henrietta M Titcomb who died 7 Mar 1877. Apparently suffering from consumption and unable to care for himself he was admitted to the home for disabled soldiers in Togus, Maine on 28 Jun 1877 where he died.

CPT George Carr Dow (b. 11 May 1834 - d. 19 Dec 1877) was my 6th cousin 4 times removed. Wea are both descendants of Abraham Jaquith II (1644 - 1679)
