The Dows and Parkers first settled in Maine in the early 19th century. They were sea captains, teachers, housewrights, ship builders, and served in local government. After a career at sea, Capt. Millard Dow and his wife Jennie left behind a treasure trove of letters, artifacts, and photographs from their families and travels. Handed down among their many descendants, we are gathering these together here to tell their story.
