From my records, our Dower's started in Newfoundland with James Herbert
Dower. Some of the Dower's from Conche, Newfoundland moved to the United
States from Newfoundland.
Here is some info on James Herbert Dower and I am always trying to find more
going back years before him. There has been a dead end there.
