Jeff Fitz was nice enough to email me with some valuable information. I'll post it here in case it's of use to anyone else. Especially read the part about Mary Law Miller copying tombstone inscriptions. My thanks to her wherever she is.
I too am related to John Law and Dorothy Lowery. However, I have not had too much luck in this area, but here's what I know....
John Law b. 01 Jul 1820d. 20 Feb 1891 b. Brethren in Christ Meeting House Cemetery, Ringgold, Washington Co., MD
Mary Dorothy (Lowery) Law b. 10 Dec. 1825d. 12 Dec 1909 also buried Brethren in Christ Meeting House Cemetery, Ringgold, Washington Co., MD
`According to the IGI, there was a marriage of aJohn Law and Dorothy Lowrie on 21 Dec 1847 at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Waynesboro, Franklin Co., PA (just over the border from Ringgold) but I have not been able to prove that it was the same John and Dorothy.
John and Dorothy had, as far as I know, the following children in addition to your William:
Ann C. Law (my ancestor) b. 1850 d. 1920 bur. Ringgold m. Jerome C. Fitz b.15 Aug 1849 d. 24 Apr 1926 bur. Ringgold
David E. Law b. 21 Jun 1863d. 2 Apr 1933 bur. Ringgold
Emma B. Law b. 19 Jan 1870d. UNK
(Added by Mike Law: Actually there were 12 children. My Father may have a list. I'll post as I get them.)
Most of this information comes from an e-mail I received from Mary Law Miller in which she was responding to a post by me on the LAWS-L mailing list.
"Jeff, by a crazy coincidence, I drove by the Brethren in Christ Meeting House yesterday.I had previously seen the graves of John Law and Dorothy Law.They were knocked over in a summer storm by a falling tree several years ago.I went to check if anyone fixed them.Well, noone has and the stones have been completely removed.I did copy the stones in the past. They do not seem to be my direct Law family but I will print the gravestone inscriptions in case they help someone else.

I seem to have misplaced the rest of the e-mail that tells me the death date of Emma. (Added by Mike: ABT. 1953)
Please let me know if you can provide any additional information on John and Dorothy LAW
