I have few records for the part of Grayson that stayed Grayson after Carroll was created. The Lowes apparently were in the ppasrt that rewmasimned Grayson

There wetr4e a dozen Lowe families in Virginia in 1820 and none were in Grasyson.

Lots of "Low" familes and census-takers were often poor spellers. None of them were in Grayson either.

John Williams bought "the Reece place on Mill Creek" from Greenberry McKenzie in 1807. Williams sold this land to Elijah Lowee in 1836. By then, Williams lived in Ohio.

Williams lived on Chestnut Creek in present Carroll which was a largely Quaker settlement.

You might check Quaker records for Lowes.
