In Reply to: Re: LOWERY/Lowry families of Jefferson Co., GA by Jan Lowry of 380

Jan, I have a couple more scraps of info for you concerning the Lowery family. I don't know much about the McGill line. Margaret McGill Lawson's parents were Roger Lawson and Margaret McGill and her grandfather was John McGill.

The early tax records of GA show many Lowerys, including some in close proximity to William:

LOWERY, DAVID JACKSON 1799 FORK OF OCONEE
LOWERY, JOHN GREENE 1797 WATSON
LOWERY, JOHN JEFFERSON 1799 CARSWELL
LOWREY, JOHN WILKES 1791 MCCORMACK
LOWREY, JOHN CHATHAM 1793 NO DISTRICT
LOWREY, LEVI BURKE 1798 DISTRICT 1
LOWREY, LEVI BURKE 1798 DISTRICT 1
LOWREY, LEVI BURKE 1798 DISTRICT 1
LOWREY, PRUSS ANN BURKE 1798 DISTRICT 4
LOWREY, SIMEON BURKE 1798 DISTRICT 2 4D
LOWRY, BENJAMIN WILKES 1791 CLAY
LOWRY, JOHN HANCOCK 1796 KIRK
LOWRY, WILLIAM JEFFERSON 1799 HAMPTON

I have some info concerning some Lowery wills. I cannot take credit for the misspellings, however. This is a copy/paste of an email sent to me.
