      NOTES:

      Carlton MOW was born in Richland Township near Rochester, IN. He moved to South Bend as an adult, and married Dollie KERLER there in 1927. In 1946 the MOWs moved to Moses Lake in Grant County, WA. Dollie passed away in 1970, and Carlton married the second time in October, 1971.

      The obituary published in the newspaper at Moses Lake for Dollie (KERLER) MOW nearly a complete history of the couple's places of residence and employment experiences. Compiler has extracted those sections relating directly to Carlton to reprint in this biography.

      . . . In 1931, Mrs. MOW took a leave of absence which lasted until 1943.

      Mr. MOW went to work for the DuPont Corporation in Charleston, Ind. in 1940, transferring to ALABAMA in 1942. In 1943, he was transferred to Hanford where Mrs. MOW also went to work that year for DuPont again as a private secretary and stenographer.

      The couple transferred to Rosemont, Minn., after a year, still working for DuPont, and from there to Orange, TEXAS working for DuPont again.

      In 1946 they left DuPont and came to Moses Lake where he began work for the A.M. BENGAL Construction Co. of Spokane.

      . . . Mr. MOW retired from the L & S. Construction Co. of Moses Lake in 1961 but Mrs. MOW worked for Seattle-First (National Bank) until February of 1966. . .

      The obituary published for Carlton was much less detailed --

      CARLTON G. MOW
