Nancy Lowthorp, daughter of Thomas Lowthorp and Mary Baker was in Lee County Mississippi by the mid 1880 as a young woman in her teens.She married there in the late 1880s and lived there for several years before migrating to East Texas.What brought Nancy to Northern Mississippi?Her great uncle Bryant Lowthorp supposedly moved to Mississippi from NC around 1850 after marrying Elizabeth Davis.Did Bryant live in Lee County?Was Nancy visiting/living with her great uncle's family??
Checking the cemetery records of Lee County reveals the following:
LEE COUNTY CEMETERY RECORDS 1820-1979, copyright 1981, Northeast Mississippi Historical and Genealogical Society, Tupelo, MS.
page 358 Tupelo Memorial Park, Tupelo MS Ernest F. Lowthorp Sept 24 1896-June 29 1956
page 134 Glenwood Cemetery, Tupelo MS Lila H. Lowthorp Sept 15 1864-Apr 5 1959
page 306 Saltillo Cemetery, Saltillo MS Willie Lee Lowthorp, inf daughter of J.T. and D.J. Lowthorp Apr 13 1893-Jan 24 1894
Anyone on the list recognize these folks?Do you know the connection to Nancy or perhaps her brother Benjamin??Please comment if you have any information.Thanks. db
