                                                       Lowry Cemetery

    This little cemetery is located in section 20, town of Marshall, on the farm formerly owned, we believe by Glen Richards. It is located in a field west of county trunk A south of the side road which leads west to the Sabin fish pond. It is known as the Lowry cemetery, for what reason we do not know. There are only two tombstones visible. One reads

            To the memory of
            our dear Mother
            Marandy Bailey
            Born June 27, 1799,
            Died August 26, 1861.

    The other is for "Sgt. W. M. Bailey, Co. b 20th Wis. Vol. Inft." That is all the marking on the stone but from records we learn he enlisted from the town of Marshall, July 15, 1862, was first a private, then a corporal and then a sergeant. He was discharged in December, 1864, on account of illness. It appears likely that Marandy was the mother of the soldier boy. Others may be buried in this cemetery but we saw no markers for them.
