Am trying again, maybe one of you might have some guesses or suggestions. I have a court doc from 1848 apparently resulting from a will left by ANDERSON LOWRY. My RILEY LOWRY is one of the defendants (and I'm guessing the othe defendants may be RILEY's siblings) Obviously there is a connection between RILEY and ANDERSON but I've never been able to figure it out -- Any ideas on who/which ANDERSON LOWRY this might be? or any other ideas on any of these people: Thanks.
