In Reply to: Lowry and Crowley by Susan Clancy of 94936

Susan,I found various records which relate to your family.

1855 Massachusetts census:
Boston,Ward 11,Suffolk,Mass
William Lowry age 45
Mary Lowry age 50
Susanna Lowry age 24
William Lowry age 20
Jaime Lowry age 18

1860 US Census;
William Lowry age 60,born 1800 in Ireland
Mary Lowry age 60,born 1800 in Ireland
James Lowry age 23,born 1837 in Ireland

1865 Massachusetts census:
William Lowry age 60,born Ireland @ 1805,ropemaker
Mary Lowry age 63,born Ireland @ 1802

I could not locate a marriage for Susanna nor James but James must have married between 1860-1865.As for Susanna I cannot locate any record for her.Perhaps she died?

Marriage cert:
groom:William Lowry
groom's father:William Lowry
bride:Ann Sweeney
bride's father:Daniel Sweeney
married:25 August 1855

I did not locate Lowrys in Boston passenger lists.Could they have come in through New York?

I did find 2 births of children to James and William which struck me a bit odd.

Susan Lowry
born 4 Feb 1867 in Lyman,York,Maine
parents:William Lowry/Ann Sweeney

Mary Jane Lowry
born 22 June 1868 in Lyman,York,Maine
parents:James Lowry/Mary Jackson

in both these births the children are listed as being born in Lyman,York,Maine and Hingham,Massachusetts.Do you know connection to Maine?

Also,according to death certs for Mary Lowry,James Lowry and William Jr,Mary's mothers maiden name is not coming up as Crowley.

William Lowry Sr
died:22 Jan 1870
born Ireland @ 1800
parents born in Ireland
died apoplexy

Mary Lowry
died 3 May 1870
born Ireland @ 1792
parents:Peter Cowley/Polly ?

James Lowry
died:12 Nov 1881
born:1836 Ireland
father:William Lowry born Ireland
mother:Mary Kallan/Callaghan born Ireland

William Lowry(Jr)
died:6 Nov 1882
age 48
born 1834 Ireland
father:William Lowry
mother:Jane Callan

Mary Lowry
died:10 Dec 1871
age:24 born 1847
parents:William Jackson born Ireland
Ellen Bowen born Ireland
spouse:James Lowery
died of consumption

Do you know if William Lowry was naturalized?I did come across the name a couple of times so it would be worth checking it out as naturalizations can have good info.I would also try to discover the connection to Maine.Hope this helps,Kim
