Notes
General:
Death date from family tree of Steven Abbott. No source.
1930 Census for Gilmanton, gives the household of Simon Dow.

1 male under the age of 5
1 male of thirty and under 40
1 male of sixty and under seventy
1 female under age of 5
1 female of twenty and under thirty
1 female of sixty and under seventy

It would appear as though son Taylor Dow, wife and children are living with Simon Dow, as all the ages above would match, including Susan M. It also would show a young male, unknown, under the age of 5.
This would support some of the information in the Book of Dow which suggests that there may be more than the 2 children listed.

                2. George W. Dow
                3. Mary A. Dow

Notes
General:
Of Gilmanton, NH. From the Book of Dow "Taylor Dow m 1st Abigail Foss of Dover; 2nd Mary Emerson; d Gilmanton 1839; probably the Taylor Dow jointed the Baptist church of Exeter about 1833. Newspaper obituary in Gilmanton spoke highly of him, tailor, prominent Mason. At least two children:
George W. b. Epsom Mch 2, 1832; d widower Gilmanton Oct. 30, 1912
Mary A. m Oct. 1858 Charles E. Flower, both of Epsom. This must be the same as a garbled Epsom rec-Susan M. Dow m Nov. 13, 1849, Charles Flower."

It would appear the Book of Dow incorrect to Taylor having married twice, he died young and his widow Abigail Foss married Joseph Emerson of Epsom. Daughter Mary A. is in their houselhold 1850. The reference to the Emerson's is apparently through Abigail and not Taylor.
Dow also indicates that Susan and Mary may be one in the same. The Epsom record is not garbled. Charles (E) Flower did marry twice, both Dow's, and likely sisters. The 1830 Census for Gilmanton clearly allows for Susan to have been a part of Taylor's family based on her year of birth.
The strong connections to Epsom allow for some of Taylor's children to have been born there. Taylor Dow's mother, Mary Blake was born in Epsom. Charles E. Flower's father lived in Epsom and was married to Hannah Lawrence of Epsom. Following the death of Taylor, his spouse married Joseph Emerson of Epsom and resided there.
