In Reply to: Re: LOWERY and DOTY by marissa baker of 1382

I am not descended from Samuel Doty, but am descended from William C. Lowry's parents. The Dotys you have listed as Nancy's siblings married into another of my lines at two places. George W. Doty married my gg-grandfather's twin sister Mary Miley Dowdy. This is one of several places where the lines of Dowdy, Doty, Lowry, and French, cross one another. In this case there was tragedy ahead as George and Mary's daughter Mary Isabelle married Henry Elijah Lowry who was murdered by David Mack Dowdy Mary Isabelle's first cousin.
Samuel A. Doty married another sister of Mary Miley Dowdy, Nancy Elizabeth Dowdy. I am descended from John Thomas Dowdy who married Annie Lowry. Two of J.T.s brothers killed two of Annie's brothers - one of the killings was the one I referred to above. Henry Elijah Lowry was town marshal at Big Sandy at the time and we are trying to have him included in the list of Tennessee law officers killed in the line of duty.
