Our Lowery Cousins - three served in the Civil War

 Our Lowery Cousins
Three served in the Civil War

My 3rd great grandfather, Walter Kinnick (son of John and Mary), had six sisters. It has been fun finding each of them and following their descendants. One of the sisters was Ann (1812-1872), who married Frederick Lowery (b. 1789, VA) on 18 May 1832 in Belmont Co, OH.

Three of the four Lowery boys served in the Civil War:

Walter Kinnick Lowery (1835-1914)- Co I, 69th Indiana Infantry

Frances Marion Lowery (1844-1932) - Co I, 69th Indiana Infantry

Philander Lowery (1847-1914) - Co F, 57th Indiana Infantry

I recently received some Lowery information from a cousin in Winterset, Iowa. Here is a copy of  one of the pages. We are currently discussing some of the spellings of names, etc.

Families are Forever!  ;-)
