About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
The ancestors of the John William Lowry II family were remarkable people. Five major ancestral families came to the British North American Colonies and settled prior to the French and Indian War (1756-1763). Landing on the Atlantic seaboard, they initially settled in Pennsylvania, New York, and Virginia. Then, all Þve families moved into South Carolina. Men from each of the Þve families fought under George Washington during the War for American Independence. One served in the United States Army during the War of 1812. Others served in the armed forces at different times. All Þve families moved south and then west to purchase land in central Mississippi after the Choctaw Indians ceded that territory to the United States. There they remained. Both grandfathers of John William Lowry II served in the Confederate Army during the War Between the States. During the early years of the twentieth century he and his wife had nine children, all of whom led interesting and adventurous lives.
