Can any Lister help me find family records for 'CURTIS WILLIAM DOWD' who was living in Rochester at that time ?
He was born in Scranton,PA area and was age 36 at that time. I am interested in learning what family members were with him-wife and kids- or if not married-if he was living with another friend or relative. Thanks for any help.

You can search the 1892 census here for free

The only close match I find is a male Dowd, age 41, living with a female, age 34, and two males, 9 and 1. Their first names are hidden in the binding of the book.

Do you know where he was in 1900?

Thats the problem-I cant find him anywhere in 1900.I thought if 1892 showed me his fam-it may help me verify he died or left. I found him in 1880-unattached.Findagrave doesnt seem to have him there either.I wonder how I could find first names from 1892. Maybe a better copy somewhere else. Thanks.
By the way-Curtis is a descendant of Henry Doude-Puritan settler in CT in early 1600's.

I am not sure this is the right Curtis Dowd but I found a newspaper article where a Curtis Dowd committed suicide in a Rochester Hotel in Oct 1908.

Nothing was said about any family-the only thing they mentioned was that he was a civil engineer and was deaf.

If you want the notice let me know

Kathy-Would appreciate that article about the suicide in 1908 for Curtis Dowd. Not a real common name- have to believe it is probably him. Might be buried with other fam possibly.Thanks. gtferguson@juno.com
