Charles Joseph Dow

b. 12 December 1779, d. 22 June 1852
     Charles Joseph Dow was also known as Joseph Dow.1 He was born on 12 December 1779.1 He was the son of Joseph Dow and Elizabeth Cummings.1 Charles Joseph Dow married Olive Cobb, daughter of Perez Cobb and Abiah Richmond, on 3 November 1799.1 Charles Joseph Dow died on 22 June 1852 at age 72.2

Joseph lost his mother at age of 3, brought up by her family. A blue-eyed youth of mild manners, he acquired a taste for reading and music; at 20 teaching school in West Brookfield, adding a little income by an evening singing school. Olive Cobb was black-eyed, tall, handsome, and like her father, very "sot in her ways." Singing school and teacher, 2 in hand to ask the consent of the old folks. No fault could be found with Joseph except his youth and lack of money. Perez said no emphatically. They married and a few days later they returned to seek forgiveness and a temporary home on the Cobb farm. Perez crossed Olive's name out of the family Bible and made a new will. He'd show her, by heck, what filial obedience meant. He never relented; 41 years later his son Joseph died a bachelor and intestate. A son of Olive drove with his bride from Pennsylvania to Brookfield and collected Olive's share of the inheritance, several hundred dollars, then much needed by the old folks.


West Brookfield was thenceforth a closed book; the young couple packed their entire earthly possessions in a carpet bag, mounted the horse which Joseph had bought with every penny saved from singing school, and started for Pennsylvania, where they imagined teaching prospects were better. Preston offered them a haven; Joseph captured the school. It paid poor wages, but Joseph was useful in many ways. He played the fiddle and could pitch the tune, so he led the choir. He had a small library of English classics, out of which he found euphonious names, --Joseph, Addison, Charles Grandison, etc., applied freely to his own and to others' grandchildren. He knew about faries, Jack of Bean stock fame, and Red Riding Hood, and wove them into his school primer. Everybody liked him, but the glass factory at Bethany was needed to supply a living, for himself and later his children. Education of them cost every penny that Joseph could save and he gave the best he could. All of them taught school at some time, the oldest also a preacher. Of 10 children, 7 grew up, all inheriting musical, mathematical or artistic talents. Three were dark, stern, arbitrary, --the Cobb inheritance. Four blue-eyed, gentle, lovable, --next editions of Joseph Dow.
