LOWRY, David A., 22 Jul 1836 - 1 Nov 1864. (28-3-9)  "Son of Jas. B. & Elizabeth Lowry. He was shot while asleep by a cowardly foe." This death was probably related to the Civil War in some manner. Guerrilla Warfare was rampant up to and after the end of the Civil War in 1865 in Maury & Giles County.
