Lowson in Forfarshire
By Bob Winn October 29, 2007 at 01:30:47
I am seeking info about the Lowson family (at least the surname appears as Lowson in the 1841 snd 1851 censuses), who lived in Forfarshire in 1851 and earlier.
Alexander Lowson (1833-1928), son of James and Margaret Lowson,immigrated to the U.S. in 1853 and changed his name to Lawson. He was living in the Civil Parish of Forfar in 1841 and 1851. In the household in 1841 is another Alexander Lowson, aged 79 years. I am assuming this is the grandfather of the Alexander born in 1833.
Any assistance will be appreciated.
