The children of Jerusha Dow and Edmond Hillman were:

  • Mary Ann “Annie” Hillman
  • Isabella “Belle” Hillman
  • George Nelson Hillman
  • Moses D Hillman
  • Horace Greely Hillman
  • Cora J. Hillman (my husband’s grandmother) (1874 – 1965)

  • Jasper Hillman
  • Judson Hillman
  • Sylvia B Hillman

My husband and Dick Eastman (EOGN.com) are distantly related through their DOW lines.  Their common ancestor is Henry DOW (1577 – 1613).  Dick is fortunate enough to have an original copy of The Book of Dow, which was published in 1929.  (details below).
