|Jerusha Waterman Dow|
Today I'd like to introduce you to my maternal 2nd great-grandaunt, Jerusha S. Waterman. She was born about 1827 in Ohio to her parents Asher Waterman and Bathsheba Paulk.
Her father, Asher Waterman, was a War of 1812 veteran.
This photo of Jerusha was found in the photo album of my 2nd great-grandfather, Ebenezer Perry Carlisle Webster, who was a Civil War veteran. Ebenezer was married to Jerusha's sister, Cynthia Maria Waterman. Here's a photo of the page where Jerusha's picture was found in Ebenezer's photo album.
The handwriting at the bottom of the album page reads: "Mas Sister Jerusia Dow." If you'd like to see more photos of Ebenezer's photo album, click HERE.
Jerusha married William Wallace Dow on 10 June 1857 in Lee County, Iowa. William was a widower with six children, five of whom were living at the time he and Jerusha married.
Jerusha and William had two children together:
- Mary Eunice Dow (1858-1935)
- Arthur Wallace Dow (1860-1910)
Thanks for reading!
