"T J" was born to Lorenzo Dow and Sarah Wilkins Bright. His life was sadly short as he died as a result of the Civil War, as did so many other young men.
He was named after Lorenzo's brother, John, and Lorenzo's mother's maiden name, Thomas.
The only family photo of him was taken just before he left for war, and it seems they knew this might have been their last time together.
TJ's father was Lorenzo, and his grandfather was Elcana Bright (1762-1835). As Lorenzo's memorial was not created by me, I have been unable to link the family line together, but you can skip to Elcana using Find a Grave number 86840065.
