I am looking for any information I can find on James Greenway and his ancestors, who is my gr gr grandfather. I have no dates on him or his wives.He first married Minnie (or Mary) Lowry and had 7 children:
John Thomas Britton Greenway (my gr father) m Edna A. Robinson (7 children) Babe m Thomas Burke (3 children) Mack T. m Curtiss Thomas (0 children) Lula Bell m Joseph Edwards (6 children) Buhler Dell m Nora Potts (4 children) Cora m James Morris (2 children) Walter m Gertrude Noakes (2 children)
James' second wife was Betsy Lowry (Minnie's sister) James and Betsy had two children:
Fletcher m Annie Martin (3 children) Wilburn m Nellie Gaines (0 children)
James Greenway was born in Kentucky and lived in Nashville, was a carpenter and fought for the south in the Civil War.He was wounded in the leg in Georgia and drew a pension.His son, Wilburn, fought in World War 1.
It's my understanding, through family, that the Lowrys were 1/2 Cherokee but have no documentation as yet.I am just starting on the Greenway name in my history and haven't done much research.Anyone with any information please post here and email me.
