Other Information:

Henry Daniel Dow came to Clark Co. in 1817 from Connecticut and purchased land at that time and moved his family in 1819. He erected a saw mill in 1820. There was lots of timber to clear and saw into useable lumber. It was probably one of the first saw mills erected in Indiana I would venture a guess. He later received a land warrant from the government in 1842 as the government was promoting the settling of this territory. The next generation moved northward into Morgan county later. Henry is mentioned in the book by Captain Lewis C. Baird’s “History of Clark County”…noted on page 64.
