I am studying the Vowell family of adjacent Mecklenburg Co VA. Also in Halifax Co VA in 1790 was a marriage of Mann Page Vowell and Sarah Holt by Rev James Watkins. I suspect that Mann Page Vowell and Lucy Vowell were siblings. In 1830s a William Lofty of Cocke Co TN applied for a pension for his Rev War services in Halifax Co VA where he lived. Living adjacent to William Lofty in 1830 Cocke Co was Page Lofty, a surveyor. It is possible that Page Lofty was a son of William Lofty and Lucy Vowell although the 1830 census records are not consistent with that. Recent DNA studies indicate that Mann Page Vowell was the biological son of a MANN rather than a Vowell. It is entirely possible that Mann Page Vowell was a son of Page Mann who lived in adjacent Charlotte Co VA. Mann Page Vowell appears to be an out-of-wedlock son of Mary Vowell, born before her marriage to Christopher Bailey. I suspect Lucy Vowell was also an out-of-wedlock child of Mary Vowell. If Lucy Vowell Loftis/Lofty named a son Page Lofty, I do not know if the naming pattern reflects her own descent from Page Mann or references her brother, Mann Page Vowell. Glad to discuss this further at email@example.com.
