Re: Lowson in Forfarshire
I am also researching the Lowson`s in Forfar. I have an Alexander Lowson who was born around 1762. He married Ann Fotheringham in Forfar abt 1790. His occupation was a sadler. They went on to have seven children Alexander, Jannet, Robert, Ann, Helen, William & James. I think we could be looking at the same family here as I also connected the 79yr old Alexander as the grandfather B.1762.
I have not been able to find the parents of Alexander Lowson & Ann Fotheringham. My connection with the family is through Helen born in 1799. Other names connected with my search are Dalgety, Donaldson, Lindley & Rough. Other place names are Glamis, Dundee, Errol, in Scotland & Sheffield in England.
