Murdered by a Southern Sympathizer

Charles Dow murdered by Frank Colman.

Read about his murder at Wikipedia. It is also recorded in the Stony Point Church and Cemetery and Historic Hickory Point by Ruth Endacott Brown in 1968.

It is believed there were about 75 burials here at one time. As with any early day cemetery that is moved some were probably unknown and missed.

Charles was later moved to the Oakwood cemetery, along with his father who had been buried at Stony Point cemetery.

The Dow and Stony Point cemeteries are located in Baldwin, just outside of Lawrence. I hope to visit the Dow grave at Oakwood on a future visit to the area.
