1900 census shows she resided in the Hilltop District of Charles County, Maryland. However, other records indicate that she (and her husband) resided at the Rosemary Lawn estate in nearby Welcome from the early 1870s until sometime after his death (in 1916) She was born in England, the United Kingdom. She was associated with the Cadeby Hall estate there.
****
She owned Rosemary Lawn until 1926 or so. Because land records show that the Dows never got title to the little cemetery on the estate (when they bought the land) is the likely reason the Dows aren't buried there. The cemetery is about an half-acre or so. It was kept by the prior owners so that their heirs would always have access rights; today that worry is moot as Maryland by law gives perpetual access to relatives no matter who actually owns the cemetery.
You can see that cemetery by looking up Rosemary lawn family cemetery in Charles county, Md.
