CABOT -- George Dow, who died at his home Thursday, Sept. 19, aged 69 years. He was born in this town and was a son of Job and Tamar Dow. In 1866 he was united in marriage to Miss Lucy Pratt of West Charlestown. Six children came to their home, one dying in infancy. In 1886 death claimed the mother, leaving Mr. Dow with five motherless children. The only daughter, being old enough to take her place as housekeeper, until February 1888, when he was married to Miss Maria Waterman, who was an esteemed Christian lady, and one who has proved a good step-mother, caring for her companion several months with untiring devotion.

Mr. Dow had lived in town the past 26 years, being at first a successful farmer, later moving to the village and having charge of the grist mill, until failing health obliged him to give up work, and for some months has been under a doctor's care

He enlisted in his country's cause July 18, 1863, being a member of Co. C., 2d Vermont regiment. He had, at one time, been a member of the Congregational church of this place. He leaves his companion and five children; Bert H., living in Willimantic, Conn., Eugene in Medford, Ore., the other three in this vicinity.

Funeral services were held at his late home, the Rev. C. B. Attwood officiating, with burial in the family lot in Cabot cemetery.
