Dow Bunch Stories

 

  1. "Dow was once challenged to a fight in Albany Ky by a rough & tumble fighter of the day.  On his way to this fight someone said Dow this bully is going to grab your hair and beat you up!, Dow took out his Barlow knife, cut his hair and won the fight."
    1. -  In 1968, this story was re-told in Allen Trout's column of the Louisville Courier Journal.  A man named Al Huff wrote to the Courier the following day saying his ggrandfather was the saloon keeper in Albany and often promoted fights there.
       
  2. "During the Civil War, raiders came and stole Dow's horses. That night, Dow went and got them back." 
    1. -  Dow did not serve in the civil war despite his reputation as a great fighter.  Indians were exempted.
