I am from the branch of the Tow family that came through Tow, Texas. We belive the family was in North Carolina in the early 1800's and many researchers believe our first immegrant ancestor came from Scotland. But we have done a DNA test through FamilyTreeDNA and most of the matches outside our near family are from Norway.
If you know of anyone in that would be interested in participating in genetic genealogy, I know we would be very excited to see if the Tow's of North Carolina are related to your family.
Any male with the last name of Tow/Towe/Tau etc would be welcome to join our project at http://www.familytreedna.com/group-join.aspx?Group=Tow/Towe/...
