Lida B. Lowery (1885-1955)

I am seeking information about my G-Grandfather, Lida B. Lowery (22 Jul 1885 - 1 Nov 1955). I know nothing of his family and have temporarily hit a brick wall.

Lida is listed in Rutherford County, NC in the 1920 Census and spent the remainder of his life there. However, there is only one record of him prior to 1920 that I've found. That is his marraige record, as follows from "McDowell County, NC, Marraiges 1894-1912":

#614 Date of Issue: 19 Feb 1907
Male: Lida Lowery Age 21
Female: Ened Hicks Age 18
Marr. Date: 22 Feb 1907
Marr. Place: Marion Township
Marr. By: J.M. Greenlee, M.G.
Witnesses: A.E. Hollifield, L.B. Hollifield

I know Ened's family was from McDowell County but I'm not sure if Lida Lowery's family was from there also. There are a few Lowery/Lowry families in the 1880 McDowell County Census (before Lida's birth) that could possibly be his family. But I have been unable to access information from an 1890 or 1900 Census for McDowell County.

If anyone has information on Lida B. Lowery and his family, or has access to a 1900 census and is willing to look it up for me, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you in advance.
