What little information I have on this family comes from Internet sources, largely the LDS site at www.familysearch.org/ . Johannes Clauw/Clow and Bata Huyck, settlers of Dutch origin in Kinderhook, New York, had 13 children.

Two of their sons, Andrew and John, moved to Highgate, VT, before 1800 and were farmers and blacksmiths there. Their children were baptized in the Anglican church in Philipsburg, Quebec, apparently because both Clow families attended church there.

Andrew Clow and his wife Catherine Truax had a son named John William Clow who was born March 12th, 1805, in Highgate, VT. John Clow later moved to Shefford County, Quebec, where he and his wife Sophia Teachout were living in 1881.

John Clow and his wife Catherine Primmerman had a son named John Edward Clow who was born on March 12th, 1815, either in Philipsburg, Quebec, or Highgate, VT, and who was baptized on February 4th, 1816, in Philipsburg, Quebec. He married Dorothy Catherine Smith according to sources at the LDS site.

Both John and Andrew Clow also had sons named Andrew born in 1817 and 1818, whence my problem with connecting either set of parents to my ggg-Grandfather Andrew Clow born 1810/1820 in Quebec but who lived in Highgate, VT, and married there. Andrew and his wife Mary Shutts eventually moved to Wisconsin where they then disappeared off the face of the earth.
