"The Van C. Lowes of Madison,Mississippi" Updated January 9, 2001
About Our Family Research
I was born in Laurel,Ms March 25,1949. My Mother was Betty Jo Brewer b. 1930 from Louisville,Ms(Winston Co.) Her parents were Olen Brewer b.1906 in Iuka,Ms and Meredith Woodruff b. 1906 in Winston Co.,Ms. My Dad was Jack C. Lowe b.1926 in Laurel,Ms. He was shot down in Korea and his remains were never found. I'm trying to work with the U.S. Army through DNA samples from my Uncle and Grandmother's niece in hopes of one day bringing him back to Ms to be buried. His Dad was Vernon Lowe b.1904 in Laurel,Ms. His Mother was "Sissy" Susan Burdette b.1904 in Ellisville,Ms. I've traced both sides of my families since I've been on the Internet and have found that we are of English,Irish and Scottish stock. It's truly amazing what I have learned from the Internet! I've been married twice and have a daughter named Vanessa Cheatham with three grand-kids. My second marriage,I had a son named Brian C. Lowe who attends USM. I'm proud of both of them! I'm single now and will probably stay that way. I work with maps on computers. I enjoy my job. Van C. Lowe
