Re: Col Thomas Lowry
Thank you for your interest, Sandy. This is what I know:
Col.Thomas Lowry of VA m. Rebecca Jones, who had red hair.
Their ch. were: 1.William, d. unmarr.; 2.Thomas m. Elizabeth
Diggs. Issue; Elizabeth m (NN)Richards; Sarah b. 21 Jul 1745
d. 3 May 1819. It is said she became engaged to George Stubblefield (son of Geo.)abt. age 15. To prevent her early
marriage, her father sent her to school 600 mi. from home.
Later she returned home and m. Col. Raleigh Dangerfield, &
had 6 ch., all d. in infancy. Two years after death of Raleigh, she m. her first love Geo. Stubblefield. He became
a Capt. in the Rev. Army, and his orderly book is among the
printed records of the Virginia Historical Society. Before
the close of the War, he rose to the rank of Major. While he
was away with the Rev. Army, the British soldiers persecuted
his wife, who with her children was obliged to flee from their home.
Ref:Some Virginia Families, etc. by McIlhany, GPC, 1962;
Note: According to Gen-Web posting by Mary Kay Lawson: a
William Lowry m. Rebecca and Col. Thomas Lowry m. Martha Todd.
Whether the McIlhany account is incorrect, and/or how this
fits, I do not remember. The McIlhany data seems to be quite
reliable in other lines. If someone can tell me a correct
and final account of all the Geo. Stubblefields, please do!
Good luck, JoAnne
