      NOTES:

      The 1850 census for Fulton Co., IN shows a 20 yr. old Adam MOW living in the home of David MOW, Jr., whose age is given as 22. The place of birth for both Adam and David is IN. David, Jr.'s wife, Eleanor HOLDSTOCK, and two small sons are also enumerated in this home, as is "Samuel", 59 yr. old and born in KY. Just 4 houses away there is a David MOW, Sr. (51), born in KY., also a James MOW (16) born in OHIO. Next door is another home consisting of William MOW, born OHIO, and his wife Caroline (20), born in NY.

      Since Adam later named a son David Bruce, compiler first assumed that David, Jr. and Adam were brothers and their father was David, Sr. who was enumerated in his own household. Margarett STICKLER STEININGER, granddaughter of David Bruce, wrote compiler that the "Samuel" shown in David, Jr.'s home was the father of the two young men.

      David MOW, Jr., the husband of Eleanor HOLDSTOCK, served in Co. F of the 87th Reg., Indiana Infantry Volunteers during the Civil War. He was discharged with total disability on Dec., 1862. Military Pension File records do not identify his parents or any relatives other than his children who applied for their "Minor Children's Benefits" long after the death of their father.

      Adam MOW's obituary states that he had married Harriet WALKER in MAR, 1850; (Marriage Records states 16 MAR 1851) the 1850 census showing Adam in his "half-brother's" home was conducted in October, 1850. On that census, there is a place for "Married within the year"; there is no tally by Adam's name to indicate that he had married. William MOW in household #41, however, reports that he had married in that census year.

      "DIED. - ADAM H. MOW was born October 6, 1829 in Shelby county, Indiana, and died in Richland Township, Fulton county, March 2, 1876, aged 46 years, 4 months and 26 days. He was married to Miss HARRIET WALKER, March 16, 1850, who with six children survive him. The deceased was a member of the church for a number of years prior to his death and was known and respected in his neighborhood as a clever, honest and faithful neighbor and citizen. His death is deeply mourned by all his relatives and friends. The funeral was conducted by the IOOF lodge at Salina, of which he had been a good and faithful member. The religious services were conducted by Rev. ROBERT B. BEATY, and the burial was attended by a large concourse of relatives, neighbors and friends?sixty-two wagons and a number of men on horseback were in the procession. His remains were laid away in the cemetery at the Central Church. As neighbors and associates we deeply sympathize with the bereaved family, hoping that at some time we may enjoy the reward and the society of Brother MOW." - B.C. WILSON.

      Compiler was still somewhat uncertain of the identity of Adam MOW's father, but in January 1998, compiler's husband found the MOW family on one of Broderbund's "World Family Tree" CDs. One of these entries had been submitted by Nancy NORQUIST of Shoreline, WA. The data submitted for that disk shows Adam H., b. October 04, 1829, and Rebecca, b. October 04, 1830, as the children born to John Samuel MOW and Rebecca ARMSTRONG after their marriage on 25 Feb. 1827. According to this disk entry, the child, Rebecca, died 05 Feb. 1844. No place of death or burial is listed.

      Since the WFT disks do not provide space for documentation/referencing, compiler has written a letter to Ms. NORQUIST, hoping to find out her sources of data. As of 22 Jan. 1998, there has been no response.

      Discovery of the web site data of the John Samuel Mow Family compiled by Arlene (Mow) Stalzer has been of considerable help in documenting data on this family.
