The following are some of the Lowry/Lowery working notes.. We are still in the process of expanding and correcting these pieces of information.. We are presently in the process of obtaining additional information of the Lowry/Lowery's in Shelby, Coosa, Jefferson and Macon county Alabama. We have no information on connection families such as Avery, Cameron, etc. We are continuing to find additional data on Andrew Madison Lowery and his family, and on William Walter Lowery. Any amplifications or additional data will be greatly appreciated.

Descendants of David Lowry
10/10/1999

Generation No. 1

1.  DAVID1 LOWRY was born Abt. 1780 in ,SC, and died Aft. 1850.  He married SARAH CRUMPTON Abt. 1802 in , Greenville,SC, daughter of LUKE CRUMPTON and MARY DUKE.  She was born April 04, 1787 in ,Greenville, SC, and died in AL.

Notes for DAVID LOWRY:
David and Sarah Lowry were in Shelby County AL prior to the 1820 census report. In the 1830 census report, Thomas and George were married and were living near David and Sarah.  George and Thomas moved to Coosa County AL in the very early 1830's.. Living with George's family were two older people who appear to have been David and Sarah.  In the 1850 and 1860 census report George and his family had moved to Jefferson county AL.  Thomas and his family and David and Sarah were back in Shelby County AL in the 1850 census report.  Thomas dissappeared after the 1850 census report and was assumed to have died.  David's wife, Sarah, was with David (son of Thomas) in Jefferson county in the 1860 census report, living near George.  Also living near George in the 1860 census report was William Lowery (son of George) and his family, and David Lowery (son of George) and his family. David Lowry  was not seen after the 1850 census.  David and Sarah were living next to their son (Thomas) in Shelby county in the 1850 census report . All of the children of David have not been located at this time.  The 1820 Shelby County AL Census report indicated that David and Sarah had three boys and three girls (under the age of 21). Thomas and George married prior to the 1830 census report.
The movement of these families must be viewed with caution, the County lines varied in the early years.
It appears that Sarah (d:1821), Nancy and Lousia are daughters of David and Sarah.
 

Notes for SARAH CRUMPTON:
Sarah and her husband David Lowry are identified as being born in South Carolina in the 1850 Shelby County AL census.  It appears that David died between 1850 and 1860.  Sarah is identified with what appears to be the oldest son of Thomas (David) in the 1860 Jefferson county AL census.  (David could also be a younger son of David and Sarah??)  In the 1860 census she indicates that she was born in Ohio ?  Minnie Lowry, one of their older children, indicates she was born in S C. (There is a probability that Minnie didn't exist, See Minnie's notes)
Sarah's five (5) brothers, James, John, Luke Jr., William and David and their sister Miriam (wife of Jesse Avary) all moved to Bibb or Shelby County Alabama in the early 1800's.
U.V.Waldrop found the valuable "Book of Ages" in a trunk in Alabama , with the names and birth dates of the Crumptons.
The Crumpton data was provided by Dan Crumpton, P.O. Box 47, Warrenton, GA 30828.  He is a member of the "Crompton List" on Roots.

 iii. MINERVIA (MINNIE) LOWERY, b. Abt. 1802, SC.

Notes for MINERVIA (MINNIE) LOWERY:
Minervia "Minnie" Lowery was shown in Census reports as being born i n SC. An independent researcher indicated that she married Jessie Ava ry in Alabama.  Jessie Avary was married to Miriam Crumpton, a younger sister of Sarah Crumpton Lowry. Jessie and his family migrated to GA, and then to Alabama.  Jessie and his family lived next to other Crumptons and David Lowry and Sarah in Alabama.  Miriam appeared as "Myron" and "Minnie" in some records. Avary researchers indicate that Jessie's wife, Miriam (Minnie, Myron) is buried with Jessie.  In all probability, There is NO Minnie Lowry.  Research is continuing to identify David and Sarah's daughters.

The Following appeared in the Book "Pioneers and Residents of West Central Alabama prior to the Civil War" by Madge Pettit :
Jesse Avery was born in 1803 in South Carolina and was married to Minnie (Lowery ?) who was born in 1802 in South Carolina. Her father is thought to be David Lowery, born 1780 in South Carolina and her mother thought to have been Susan, born 1785 in South Carolina. The 1850 census for Shelby County, Alabama, indicates Jesse and Minnie were living at house #231 with following children : Robert L.,Luke, Lydia, Esley D., Elizabeth, Sarah, Jane, James, and Frances.  Next door at #230 were David and Susan Lowery, and at #239 was Thomas Lowery.

Generation No. 2

2.  THOMAS2 LOWERY (DAVID1 LOWRY) was born Abt. 1804 in ,KY, and died Aft. 1850.  He married MARTHA CAMERON September 22, 1825 in ,Shelby, Al.  She was born Abt. 1807 in ,TN.

Notes for THOMAS LOWERY:
Thomas Lowery was married in Shelby County AL in 1825.  He was last seen in the 1850 Shelby Co.AL census report with his wife and family. The 1840 census report appears to indicate that Thomas had two older sons.  He appears to have died after 1850. We do not know if he took his family to Macon County AL in 1850, or that his three older sons Calvin, Andrew and Richard, went there on their own.. The three boys were all married in Macon County AL.  In the 1860 Covington County AL census report Kesiah Jane (Mathis) Lowery and her family were located near the Wesley Math is family and the Jesse Beck family. Andrew Madison Lowery did not clearly appear in the census report.. There was a Madison Lowery listed in the place of Martin Lowery (age 4).  Also in the household was an Elizabeth Lowery.. Elizabeth appears to be the youngest daughter of Thomas Lowery of Shelby County AL. All of this points to the death of Thomas. We now have to locate Thomas's wife, Martha. Thomas's Father, David was located in the Shelby County AL census 1820 census report.  David and his wife appeared to be living with their Son, George, in Coosa Count y AL 1840 census report; and with their son, Thomas, in the Shelby County 1850 census report.
David was born in 1780 in SC and was one of the early settlers of Shelby County AL.  Living next to David and Thomas in Shelby county is Jesse Avary who was married to Minnie / Miriam Crumpton  who was born in 1802 in SC.
Thomas Lowery was elected a county commissioner in Coosa County AL i n 1833.
There is a record of the commissioners meeting in May 1834 at Lexington.  The records indicate Thomas Lowery attending.  The next term a public road was ordered to be opened from Bait's Ferry on the Coosa River, and the nearest and best route to the county line of Coosa and Talladega to Talledega Town.  John Cameron was one of the appointed reviewers to mark out the road. They also ordered the opening of a public road beginning at the county line in the town of Wetumpka and run then in a straight direction to the county line of Talladega county, at or near Thompsons Coker's.  George Lowery was one of the reviewers on this road that was known as the Jackson Trace.
Thomas was a Capt. and George was a Lt. in the Coosa Militia.  They both got bounty land.

7.  ANDREW MADISON3 LOWERY (THOMAS2, DAVID1 LOWRY) was born 1833 in ,Coosa, Al, and died 1871 in Evansville, Escambia, Al.  He married KESIAH JANE MATHIS August 31, 1851 in Tuskegee, Macon, Al, daughter of WESLEY MATHIS and MARY.  She was born October 14, 1835 in ,FL, and died April 10, 1920 in Canoe, Escambia, Al.

Notes for ANDREW MADISON LOWERY:
The following is a quote from the "History of Escambia County Alabama ".
"Andrew Madison Lowery was born of Scottish Immigrant parents in 1833, probably in Laurens County, Georgia. He served in Finnegan's Florida Regiment in the Civil War.  He was living in Georgia when the war ended and migrated by oxcart to Evansville, Alabama.  A man named Franklin shot and killed Andrew, alleging that Andrew's dog was killing his sheep."  Evansville was a booming town which sprung up around a saw mill. The sawmill burned down in 1871 and the town vanished, as fast as it had sprung up. Evansville (1838-1871) was in Escambia County Alabama; near the old Miles Crossing, very near to the Sardis Church. Evansville was 2 miles east of Wawbeek (Miles crossing). Wawbeek is between Canoe and Flomaton. Andrew and Kesiah are buried in the Bowman Cemetery at Wawbeek. Andrew died at age of 38, Kesiah died at age of 84. A major effort was mounted in early 1994 to locate Andrew's parents, brothers and sisters.  It appeared that Andrew missed the Georgia and Alabama Federal census (possibly because of the War between the States and his migration). The search has identified many Lowery's in Georgia as possible relations but no connection was accomplished. The 1880 Escambia County Alabama Federal census presented some conflicting data that redirecedt the search efforts.  The census indicated that Andrew was born in Alabama, and his children (except one) were born in Alabama. Kesiah was located in Macon County Alabama in the 1850 census (with her family).  Kesiah wa s again located in the 1860 in Covington County living with or near her family.  She had five children at this time.  Andrew was missing and is assumed to be with the Confederate Army at this time? The 1880 census indicated that Andrew and his children were born in Alabama? 1900 census data indicates that their daughter Victoria was born in Georgia, so the data that the family was in Georgia during the Civil War appears to be true. Research indicates that Andrew and Kesiah met and married in Macon county Alabama.
The VERY First location of Andrew Madison Lowery was in the 1850 Shelby County AL census. He was located as one of the Children of Thomas Lowery.  The census showed a child of the same age as Andrew Madison Lowery named "Andrew M. Lowery". Andrew and (at least) two of his brothers went to Macon County AL, Most likely for work.  Macon County was a booming "King" Cotton area.  All three married in Macon County.
The Wesley Mathis family was located in Macon County in 1850, and in Covington County in 1860.  Living close to them in Covington County was the Beck Family. Madison and Kesiah received a land grant in Covington County Alabama on 1 January 1855. The land grant was for 320.4 acres.  Also receiving land grants were Lunich Lowery (321 acres, 1855), Robert M. Lowery (78.8 acres, 1856) and William G. Lowery (160 acres, 1895).  A John Mathis received a land grant of 34.94 acres in 1886. Were these Lowery's related or is the connection to be made in Macon County Alabama? Andrew gave his name as Madison Lowery in the marriage license at Tuskegee, Macon County, Alabama (31 August 1851) and for the Covington County land grant.
 Searches were retraced and a check for a "Madison" Lowery was included. Other Lowery's that were married in Macon county and could be related are: S.R. Lowery, Elizabeth Lowry, S.R. Lowery and Elizabeth Hanley (27 Dec. 1851), Thee Lowery and Catherine Daniel (1 July 1853), Richard Lowery and Willis A. Williams (23 Dec 1855), Calvin Lowery and Eliza Hudson (6 April 1856), and Theodore Lowery and Richard P. Calvin .  The first location of Madison Lowery was his marriage to Kesiah Jane  Mathis in Tuskagee, Macon county on 31 Aug. 1881.  The second location is for land (320 acres) in Covington County Alabama in Jan. 1855.  In both cases he was identified as "Madison" Lowery.
The 1860 Covington County AL census report appears to suffer from many errors. Andrew Madison Lowery is not identified.. A Madison Lowery is identified instead of his child Martin Lowery..There is an Elizabeth Lowery in the household.  This is most likely Andrew Madison's youngest sister. The marriage licenses in Tuskegee, Macon co. AL identify Andrew Madison and two of his brothers, Calvin and Richard.

Notes for KESIAH JANE MATHIS:
Kisiah Jane Mathis survived her husband by 49 years but her pioneer spirit enabled her to rear her children by hard work.  She contracted work with the railroad, hauled cross ties, and she and the two oldest sons, chopped and delivered wood to the railroad to be used for fuel in the steam engines. She would "dead-head" on the train to Montgomery from Canoe and bring back the payroll for the railroad workers.  She moved to Canoe in 1871 and lived to 1920. Most of Andrew and Kesiah's children are buried in Bowman Cemetery. Three of her children homesteaded in Canoe;  Andrew Martin Lowery, Mattie Jane Dunaway, and Mary Dawson.  The 1860 Census (Covington) and 1880 Census (Escambia) indicate children born in Ala. Kesiah's parents came from South Carolina.  They moved to Florida, Georgia, and then to southern Alabama. Kesiah's brother and sister's, along with her son William Lowery and his wife, were the founder's of Enon, Florida. William Walter Lowery later moved to Williams Station (Atmore) and became a major influence in the development of Atmore and Escambia County. Kesiah died at age of 84.

Salley and Kisiah were born in Florida.  The Escambia Historical Society also
indicates that Salley and Kesiah were born in Florida.
  Data for future use from Enon Cemetery:
(Salley Mathis b 1833 m John J. Grimsley and was one of the founder s of Enon, Florida. James Larkin Mathis b 1848 m 1st Smantha Hudgins , 2nd Mattie Dennis; Mary Ann Mathis (Holland) b 1839).

Mathi s b 15 Oct 1851 d 19 Sep 1927; Emmie Niger (child of Nance Wesley Mat his) b 1 Mar 1889, d 18 Sep 1892. We are in touch with John Uhel Grim sley (Bainbridge GA) and Arron Grimsley (Pensacola FL) and have established our relationship with the Grimsley tree by way of the Mathis a nd Beck trees.

Kesiah Jane Mathis name appears as "Kisiah" in the 1850, 1880 census reports.
It appears as Kesiah in other reports and Keziah in one report.

A six month search has not revealed a single census report that identifies Andrew Madison Lowery. After an intensive search of Georgia and location of the most likely family trees in Laurens Georgia, the search has now moved to Alabama (1880 and 1900 census reports indicate Andrew was born in Alabama). Andrew met and married Kesiah in Tuskegee, Macon County on 31 August 1851. The by M.S. Kelton (JP). Search of the two Lowery families that lived close to the Mathis have not revealed Andrew.  The search has continued to other families as older children often worked as Laborers. "Madison" was finally located with his family in the 1850 census of Campbell County Georgia (this proved to be a false connection). Kisiah and her son Andrew Martin acquired considerable land in the Canoe area. Her son Andrew Martin had a saw mill for many years.  It is assumed that the land was acquired to provide wood for the trains and for Andrew Martin's saw mill.

11.  WILLIAM WALTER4 LOWERY (ANDREW MADISON3, THOMAS2, DAVID1 LOWRY) was born March 22, 1853 in ,Macon, Al, and died March 12, 1935 in Atmore, Escambia, Al.  He married MARY FLORENCE BECK April 16, 1874 in Perdido, Escambia, FL, daughter of JESSE BECK and SARAH WOODCOCK.  She was born November 14, 1857 in ,Covington, Al, and died April 05, 1930 in Atmore, Escambia, Al.

Notes for WILLIAM WALTER LOWERY:
William Walter Lowery was born in Macon County Alabama. The family then  migrated to Covington County. During the Civil War, the family migrated to Georgia.  After the war, they migrated to Escambia County Alabama.
William Lowery was approximately 18 years old when his father died and his mother migrated to Canoe, AL. He was 21 years old when he married Mary Beck. They were married in the "Perdido" area in Escambia county Florida. ( This is the area where the Beck's and Mathis migrated to from Covington County AL.) They moved to the area of the town of Center in Shelby County Texas and began their family. Some of the Beck's (Jesse) were also settled near Center. They returned to Alabama where they were involved in the founding of Enon , Florida. William started homestead on 160 acres (Southwest quarter of Section ten, in Township three North of Range thirty three wes t of Tallahassee Merridian in Florida) in December 1880. He built a log dwelling with kitchen, outhouse smoke house, crib, stables and fencing. He cultivated 10 to 12 acres each year for food for his family and farm animals. He received ownership of the land in June 1886. H is homestead document was witnessed by A.D. Beck, Wesley Mathis, P.H . Williams, and J.L. Mathis. His land was located near the near the area where Enon was founded in about 1885. He was in volved in the timber business (logging). He would cut down the original growth yellow leaf pine trees, haul them to the Perdido river, and float them down to the sawmill at Muscogee. Rumors are that he developed the method of tieing logs together and floating them down to the sawmill (Perdido river) with the crew living on the make-shift raft (This is doughtful, as this became common practice in the timber industry). Documents indicate that William, members of the Mathis famil y, members of the Beck family, and other closely associated people founded the town of Enon, Florida in 1885. These document are off by ab out 5 years. They started their homestead requirements in 1880 and completed the requirements about 1885.  It is assumed that their primary industry was timber and farming. The area was quite remote, with no railroad or postoffice. They would often have to use the postoffice in Ray, Alabama (across the Perdido river). He sold his land to James L. Mathis ($200) in August 1891 after he moved to what was then named Williams Station, Alabama.
  Williams Station was renamed Atmore in 1895. William had one of the first stores in Williams Station, and there is some speculation that the "Williams" in "Williams Station" is William Lowery. The most accepted version of how Williams Station got its name is attributed to Bud Pleasant Williams .  Mr.
Williams was a neighbor and friend of William Lowery in Florida.  The people in that area would travel up to the railroad stop in Alabama for supplies and the story goes that Williams Station was named after Pleasant Williams.
William Lowery became a major contributor to the development of Atmore and Escambia County.  He was affectionly known as "Uncle Bill" to the people in the area.  He was involved with the first bank (Bank of Atmore) which is still in existance. He opened the first ice house, and many other enterprises. He was the Vice President of the Atmore Hardware when it was incorporated. The Atmore Hardware was the first hardware sto re, first undertaking establishment, first Ford agency (Model T), and first furniture store in town. He was the Escambia County Commissioner from 1900 thru 1904. He was deeply involved with the design and construction of the County Courthouse built in 1902, The corner stone of the County Court house bore the inscription "W. W. Lowery". He held considerable land; not just in the center of Atmore, but in surrounding areas.
He was one of the real pioneers in the development of Atmore and the surrounding area.  He built houses for his children in the city block that he owned.  He developed and installed running water to the adjorning houses long before Atmore provided running water for the residents. He and his children
made major impacts on the local area. He is typical of the men that made America so great. He was a man of high moral standards and integrity , and was not afraid of work. If something needed fixing, he fixed it. William died at the age of 81 of Cancer. Present research indicates that William met Mary
Florence Beck in Covington County Alabama where she was living with her family. The Beck's, Lowery's and Mathis were close neighbors and friends. When William died, he left his house and its belongings to his daughters. The house became known as the "Lowery House". He left his bank stocks and other assets to his sons. Unfortunately, the "Lowery H ouse" and the house behind it (Winton Walter Lowery Jr. house) was bought and replaced by the Atmore Advance Newspaper.  Very recently, it was discovered that the houses in the Lowery block are being restored.  What a shame that the grandest one of all is not there.

Notes for MARY FLORENCE BECK:
Mary F. Beck and William Walter Lowery were married in Perdido,FL b y the Rev. Joseph Johnson on 16 April 1874. The marriage certificate indicates that Miss Mary F.Beck was from Perdido, Florida. Escambia County Florida Marriage license issued 4/14/1874. A family record indicates she was from Covington County. There is a connection between the Beck's and the Grimsley's. John Grimsley married one of the Mathis girls (Salley). Some of the Beck's, the Mathis, and W.W. Lowery were involved in the founding of Enon, Florida. After they married Mary and William moved to Texas (during the dark days of corruption and suppession that was imposed on the Confederate states after the "War between the States",) and returned when the reconstruction period began. They were involved in the formation of the town of Enon, Florida in 1880 and later migrated to Williams Station (Atmore) where William realized his "American Dream". Mary Beck died at the age of 72.

Notes for JR. WINTON WALTER LOWERY JR.:
Winton Lowery was born in Williams Station in 1884; one year prior to the town changing its name to Atmore (in honor of C.P. Atmore, L& N RR Agent). After graduating from school, be became a druggist and was often called "Doc". He joined the Army Medical Department in World War I on 19 July 1917 and was discharged on 6 September 1919.  There is no indication on his records that he went overseas during the War. He managed the local movie theater (owned by his father and Rankin and later willed to him) until he was forced to sell the Strand theater to an Entainment chain in 1934. He also opened up a theater in the "Colored section" of Atmore.  John Benoit Sr. managed this theater for him .  He was also involved in other activities such a "boxing ring" that produced boxing events for the area.  He would often put a number of children (including his own) into the ring, blindfolded, for entainment and fun between main events. The children thought this was great fun and no one was hurt.  He was very active in the local community. He was the first president of the Atmore Lions Club in 1928, and again in 1931. He was a 32nd degree Scottish Rite Mason (Mobile Consistory). It is assummed that he was a member of the local Atmore Masonic Blue Lodge.
  After the sale of his Movie Theater, he began a number of business ventures in Mississippi, Lousiana, and Texas. He was a commercial printer, scrimp boat owner/operator, a Physio Therapy Health Clinic owner, a Night Club/Resturant   manager, a tire shop owner, etc. He contracted Leucaemia while opening an Ice Cream Parlor in Houston, Texas. After the medical profession took all of his money, he was moved to the Veterans Hospital in Boloxi, Mississippi ; where he died in 1940.
  His travels from Atmore took him to Gulfport, New Orleans, Houston, San Antonio, Del Rio, and Corpus Christi. He was not afraid of hard work and was willing to venture into new fields of business. After his death, he was buried in the Bowman Cemetery, with full military honors. After his wife's death, he was moved to the Lowery plot in the Oak Hill Cemetery. Winton died at 1:43 AM on 14 April 1940 at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Boloxi, Mississippi. He received an Honorable discharge from the Army. Records indicate that he was 22 years and 11 months of age when he enlisted. His records indicated his occupation as a Druggist when he entered the Army. The discharge record indicated he had Blue eyes, Brown hair and a Ruddy complexion, and was 5 foot 4 3/4 inches in height. He received a Victory button. He was stationed at Fort McPherson Georgia. Florence, his wife, never remarried and managed to keep the family of four boys together until they reached maturity. Winton and his wife Florence had a house directly behind William W. Lowery while they lived in Atmore. Winton died at the age of 46.

Notes for FLORENCE OLIVIA LYNCH:
Florence Lynch graduated from the Escambia County High School, Atmore , Alabama. After she married Winton, they lived in a house behind Winton's father. As Winton began to make his mark in Atmore, she raised their family of four boys. Winton (III) was born in a hospital, the remaining children were born at home. After the Theater was sold, t hey moved to Gulfport, Mi. (34-45); New Orleans, La. (35-36); Houston , Tx. (37); San Antonio, Tx. (37); Houston, Tx. (38); Corpus Christi , Tx. (38); Houston, Tx. (39); Del Rio, Tx. (39); and Houston, Tx. (4 0).  After her husband died in 1940, Florence returned to Atmore with her four sons (destitute from the medical/hospital expenses). She resisted the suggestion of splitting up the family and raised her boys until they entered the service in World War II or went to college . Three of her sons were in the Navy in World War II (Winton, Maurice and Tom; Tom lied about his age). Henry was in the Air Force during the Korean Conflict. Florence was on the local draft board, and remained there until her sons returned from the Navy in World War II. She built a nice little house in Atmore, and lived there until her death (heart attack). All of her boys were successful in life and enjoyed the advantage of being an American. Florence never remarried after her husband's death. She said she had a good marriage and "couldn' t put up with another man". Florence died at the age of 76.
  There is a dispute on Florence's middle name. It is indicated as Olivia and Olevia on various documents.  She received a late release birth certificate that indicates her name as Olevia and that she was born in Bay Minette, AL.  She was born in Pine Barren Florida and I suspect that her correct name may be Olivia, in spite of all the documents I have that indicate otherwise. Hopefully, a check of the Escambia County Court house in Pensacola FL will straighten it out. Her sister Francis spelled it Olivia in her genealogy papers.

Notes for DONNIE DEPREE LOWERY:
Records indicate that Donnie Lowery was part of the famous "Rainbow Division" that played so vital a part in the battles of the Argonne Forest, Belleau Woods, Chateau Thierry, Second Somme, St. Michiel and others that help bring an end to the World War I conflict. ( so far three of William Walter Lowery's boys appear to have been in World War I, are there more?). Donnie was gassed, and wounded in the knee during the war .  Donnie and his family moved to Tampa, Florida. He was in the Real Estate business.  They later moved to St. Petersburg, Florida where he continued the Real Estate business.  They lived very close to the Gulf beaches. Donnie died at the age of 70.

12.  ANDREW MARTIN4 LOWERY (ANDREW MADISON3, THOMAS2, DAVID1 LOWRY) was born June 21, 1855 in ,Covington, Al, and died July 22, 1952 in Canoe, Escambia, Al.  He married MILDRED THERESA (MILLIE) BRYARS September 19, 1880 in ,Escambia, Al, daughter of BENJAMIN BRYARS and LUCRETIA MILES.  She was born March 09, 1860 in Canoe, Escambia, Al, and died December 06, 1938.

Notes for ANDREW MARTIN LOWERY:
Andrew Martin Lowery was a Baptish minister. He homsteaded in Canoe , Alabama; and most of his children are buried there. (Check: there may be a mix up of Andrew's and Mildred's death year, i.e., 1952 for Andrew and 1938 for Mildred from tombstone. History of Escambia County Alabam a indicates the reverse, 1938 for Andrew and 1952 for Mildred. Will stick with tombstone data at this time).(also LDS data mixed up?) There are two markers at the Bowman Cemetery that appear to belong to Andrew Martin Lowery's children : one is dated May 18, 1881 (Infant son) , the other just says Infant of M (?) Lowery (rest is unreadable). According to Tom Lowery Sr.; Jessie Forte placed five small head/foot tomestone pairs there.
There is a document that indicates that Andrew Monroe Lowery Jr., son of Kesiah, built and operated a sawmill and was deeply involved with the building (1884) of the Canoe Baptist church.  There is no Andrew Monroe Lowery Jr., it is referring to A.M. Lowery (Andrew Martin Lowery ). Andrew Martin Lowery sold his sawmill to the McKinnon brothers in 1894. Andrew died at the age of 83.

moved to Pensacola, Florida.
  There were about five generations of Lowrey's in Canoe, Alabama. The oldest four boys of Robert were all in the Armed services during World War I I, all at the same time. It appears that only person in Canoe, Alabama who retains the family Surname (Lowrey) is Leo Lowrey.

16.  VICTORIA A.4 LOWERY (ANDREW MADISON3, THOMAS2, DAVID1 LOWRY) was born May 29, 1862 in ,GA, and died November 15, 1938.  She married WILLIAM M. DUNAWAY November 1887.  He was born November 01, 1863 in ,FL, and died February 12, 1926.

Notes for VICTORIA A. LOWERY:
Victoria A. Lowery died at the age of 76. Her mother, Kesiah Jane, was located in her household in the 1900 census report (listed as mother in law).  It is assumed that she resided with her daugher and her family until death. The 1900 census report also indicates that Visto a was born in Georgia.  This tracks a report that indicates that Andrew Madison Lowery moved his family to Georgia during the Civil War, and moved them back to Alabama (by oxcart) after the war. It may be a wise move to investigate the Dunaway tree for additional data on Kesiah and Andrew Madison? Victoria and her husband William Dunaway are both buried in the Bowman cemetary. If we can locate where in Georgia Victoria was born, it may aid in the Georgia/Lowery connection.

19.  JAMES T.4 LOWERY (ANDREW MADISON3, THOMAS2, DAVID1 LOWRY) was born September 1868 in ,Al.  He married GEORGIA ELIZABETH RAWLS January 07, 1892.  She was born August 1862 in ,Al.

Notes for JAMES T. LOWERY:
James T. Lowery was located in the 1880 Escambia county Alabama censu s, living with his mother, Kesiah. He was also located in the Escambia c ounty Alabama census of 1900, with his family.  He indicated that he had a General Store. It is believed the store was located in Atmore, Alabama. He also
owned a number of pieces of property in the area. The 1880 census indicated that he was 10 years old (born 1870).  The 1900 census indicates that James was born in Sept 1868. As of this point in the investigation, he has not located in a Cemetery in the Canoe or Atmore area. The "History of Escambia
County Alabama" lists him as a member of the Andrew Madison and Kesiah family, and lists some of his children. There is some confusion abou this parents.  The 1880 census report lists his father and mother as being born in Alabama.  The 1900 census report lists his father and mother as being born in Georgia.  This does not agree with the birth data on census reports for these years with where the father and mother were born.  The data on these reports indicate Andrew Madison was born in Alabama and Kesiah was born in Georgia.  (Actually, Kesiah was born in Florida - her family had moved from Florida, to Georgia , and to Alabama.) The other confusing data on the 1880 census report was that James was listed as a servant, while the other children were listed as sons and daughters? The 1880 census report also reported James as "BM10". Was James adopted, or was it the usual mixup's found on census reports? The other children's data were in general agreement on the census reports. The 1880 census report indicated that the family lived in Canoe Alabama.  The 1900 census report indicated the family lived in Atmore.
