"JOHN TAYLOR", of the Hampton, New Hampshire family, had a daughter Sarah, who is seen in records [Desc. of Jasper Blake] as the wife of William Blake of Epsom, Northwood, and Barrington, NH. Their daughter Mary (or Molly) Blake would marry Simon Dow of Rye, Hampton and Gilmanton, NH, and they would name one of their sons:
JOHN T. H. DOW (unknown what middle initials stood for), born about June 1842 in Newington, NH. He died in Hampton, NH on 12 Apr 1904, and was buried in the "Hampton" (probably High Street) Cemetery [NH VR]. He had married, on 29 July 1866 in Newington, to Mary Ann (Riley) Leavitt. They had 2 children, daughter Ida May and son:
JOHN TAYLOR DOW, born 8 Nov 1869 in Portsmouth, NH [NH VR]. He had nine children with his wife Dorothy (Yeaton), who he married in 1889, and all of them grew to adulthood, except one:
JOHN TAYLOR DOW JR, who died of whooping cough on 23 July 1910, aged 11 months, nine days [NH VR]. He was first buried in Harmony Grove cemetery on 26 July [Ports. Herald, 7/27/1910], but his death record filed by the New Castle, NH clerk on 17 Aug shows him being buried in that town's Riverside Cemetery on that later date.
Though the naming pattern slightly changed with the next generation (that would be me), I revived the old family name when my son was born, some 200 years having past since the first John Taylor Dow was born.
[note: no dates posted for my living relatives, though a genealogist can probably figure it out :)]
