I have been trying to find my maternal grandmother who was a Lowery. Her first name was Oceola. She was born in Alabama on 28 Jan 1872 and died in Dallas, Texas on 27 Jan 1967. She married James Andrew Wilson in abt 1888. James Andrew Wilson was born in Wayne County, Tennessee on 23 May 1869 and died on 28 Mar 1953 in Dallas, Texas. Her parents were Wm. Hollis Lowery (born in Ireland) and Mary Frances Lowery(born in Alabama. Both were born abt 1845. If anyone of the above people are in your tree I would greatly appreciate you contacting me. I have made a great many searches in Ancestry and this site with no results. Thanks for reading my post. Regards, Eugene

I cannot help but wonder whether you could be connected to my family. Andrew Lowery was born in Ireland, and he came to Illinois with two brothers. One of his brothers went south and was never heard from again. My grandfather, William Benjamin Lowery (1864-1949), might have been named for one or more of Andrew’s brothers. My grandfather chose the name of Miriam Frances Lowery for his daughter. I know he liked the names and wonder if they had a connection to family members. At one time there were seven people named Bill Lowery in our family. Judy Robinson

I'm searching for Lowery connections too. My great grandfather was George Francis Lowery, born in Illinois in 1873 according to his death certificate. He spent his adulthood in Arkansas and Missouri. I have not been successful in tracing his family...don't know parents or siblings. The name Frances and Illinois caught my attention in your post. Might you know of any connection to George Lowery?

Mr. Eugene, Your grandmother is located in the Laurel Land Memorial Park in Dallas. She was buried there on 30 Jan 1967 according to the Death Certificate which was informed by and signed by your Aunt Pebble Wilson Claunch. She had died at the Parkland Memorial Hospital where my sister, Janel Lowrey, was born six years earlier. I'm surprised you’ve had any difficulty locating your grandmother. I know it's a bit of a drive from Oregon, but according to her obituary, your mother, Pearl, was still living in Dallas at the time of the funeral. Surely she would have told you all about it. But if not, perhaps your search was not successful because you searched on the name "Oceola." Her name is actually recorded in two parts, a given name "Osey" and middle name "Ola." Ola was a common girl’s name in the South during that period. My great-grandmother Lowrey also had the name Ola, being born in 1880 in Louisiana. Search again on Ancestry.com for simply "Osey Ola Wilson." The DC is the very first hit. You’ll have to have an active subscription to view the image. Failing that you can view the image for free, after registration (also free), on FamilySearch.org by searching Records for that same name, though the DC is the #2 hit on that site. You can also find her on FindaGrave.com, memorial #153612239. I have just uploaded an image there containing her obituary as published in the Dallas Morning News, a paper I read often growing up in Richardson. I have also submitted a Photo Request for her marker. So stay tuned.

Mr Regan: I's been a long time and you may not recall writing information about my grandmother Osey Ola Lowery. Thanks for the help. My grandmother's parents were William Hollis Lowery and Mary Francis Lowery. Both born around 1845.I cannot find them in any census or other documents. I did find out my grandmother was born in Lawrence County, Alabama. In two census grandmother said her father was born in Ireland and in other censuses she said he was born in Alabama. I am guessing he was born in Ireland and came to America by serving in the Union or Confederate Army. There was a report she was part Indian. She might have preferred to state her father was not born in Ireland as there were times when Irish was looked down on. If you have any other ideas I would appreciate hearing them> Thanks again.

Kit no. 577146 is my son. His grandfather is unknown to us. He is matching lowery from Georgia on YDNA chart in FTDNA. Looks like he may be in group 2 on your project but I'm unsure. I suppose he is ungrouoed because we do not know his ancesters(?). Would like to know more about these Georgia Lowerys. Thx.

Anyone in this group from Georgia? Hall county or surrounding areas? Looking for lowery I found a Robert Ernest Lowery living in Chicopee Mill village in 1940. He had 2 sons. The youngest being jimmy c. And would have been 5 years older than my sons grandmother. My sons father was born 1958 in hall county and was given his mother's husbands name, Benton. He later took his stepfathers name, Truelove. Any info on my sons line of lowery is appreciated!

Sorry this answer comes 15 months late. Yes, you are quite right, your boy is definitely matching with our Group 2 - Yellow. I have just moved him up there. Also moving up is kit 405303 of surname Taylor. Note, from the colorized results chart, that he is differing from the Mode of the group only on marker CDY. This marker is the fastest moving of them all, indicating a more recent mutation, thus his more longer term ancestry is consistent with the group. Mr. Taylor, testing 37 markers like your son, is spot on with the group Mode. As you can see from that results chart, upgrading to Y-DNA67 is not likely to produce any fruit since everybody in the group matches exactly in that panel (Panel 4=markers #38-67). Upgrading to Y-DNA111 has limited potential in that there are only two others testing to that level one of which, kit 204271, is sure to deviate significantly based on differing from the Mode in both Panel 2 and a slower moving marker in Panel 3. A better value instead of $228 for the upgrade to 111 would be to invest $79 in adding the Family Finder product to the kit. This tests the autosomal chromosomes of the nuclear DNA and is much, MUCH, more sensitive in detecting more recent common ancestors such as your son’s bio-gramp.

I am looking for any descendants of Andrew Jackson Lowry, James H. Lowry and Andrew H. Lowry of Dadesville Ala 1700 to 1930 timeframe. A J Lowry seems to deadend with some info from the census that states he is from Tenn.

Our Andrew Lowery lived in Illinois and came from Ireland. His children were born in the early 1860s, my grandfather William Benjamin Lowery having been born in 1864. (I believe I mistakenly posted his birth earlier as 1863 instead of 1864.) Judy Robinson, robinsonjfaye@gmail.com, Kit of Donald J. Lowery who is my second cousin

I have taken the YDNA 37 test. I am researching the lineage of Robert Berry Lowrie. The brick wall is finding his father, believed to be a Robert and his father believed to be John. I have not found any documentation for this connection.

We determined, from our "Group 30 - Light Cyan" results, that you've suffered an NPE somewhere in your line leading to Robert Berry Lowrie with the sire likely being of surname Holcombe. Keep us posted as to any progress you make with the Holcombe group.

Unless your Lowery matches at Ancestry have been tested in Family Tree, they do not have Y-DNA entered in the same bank of kits. Therefore, you cannot be matched if they have not been tested in Family Tree as well. Also, I must clarify that our Donald Lowery, my second cousin of our test in Kit No. 286036, is not the same Donald Lowery shown immediately above. I am Judy Robinson, granddaughter of William Benjamin Lowery (1863-1949). My second cousin, Donald J. Lowery, and I share our great grandfather, Andrew Lowery. Andrew and his two brothers came from Ireland. He settled in Morgan County, Illinois, married a Burch, and had three children in Franklin, Illinois. The children are Nelle Lowery, William Benjamin Lowery, and Joseph Lowery.

P. S. (Touching Return ended my entry rather than creating a paragraph!) If anyone can connect to our information, I would be thankful to know how. I hope to learn of family of Andrew’s brothers and together find a way to learn of Andrew’s parentage and earlier genealogy. It is possible that Andrew’s brother who died young might have lived in Illinois. Andrew lived in Chatham, Illinois for a short time. Then after learning boot making and becoming known as The Maker of Fine Boots, he lived the rest of his life in Franklin, Morgan County, Illinois. We do not know where in the southern part of the United States Andrew’s other brother went. We only know that he went south, and the Civil War either started or was in progress. He was never heard from. Neither do we know how old the brother who died young (younger than Andrew lived to be) was. I expect he had family, but I never heard for certain. If anyone is familiar with this family history, please do contact me, Judy Robinson. My email address is robinsonjfaye@gmail.com. Thank you to everyone who has done testing and to everyone who has shared information.

Hello everyone! Recently, I've upgraded my test to include the Y111 and the Big Y. I encourage everyone in the Lowery Project to join the I-M223 Y-Haplogroup Project to find out just how closely we are related. My original Y37 test was too vague, so I'm looking forward to finding out my specific Haplogroup branch through SNP testing.
James Lowry
February 17, 2017 @ 1:14pm
Since I (kit# 104494) matched with someone from another Haplogroup, I asked Wayne Roberts (the Administrator of the I-M223 Y-Haplogroup Project) why and this was his reply about our Lowery Project: "You would also be I-L126, a sub-branch of I-M223 (our Isles Scots/Irish/Welsh/Manx sector). So Group 6 and Group 8 in the Lowery Project are all I-L126 except for Kit 115393. Your Big Y test will be of great help in determining which sub-branch of I-Y4171 and if you fit into any Clan group or form your own unique line. Kit 115393 is part of sub-branch I-CTS6433. Kit 311684 in the Ungrouped section is also I-CTS6433. To better predict these two and also Kit 79359 in Ungrouped, they would need to upgrade to 111 markers or test for the I-M223 SNP Pack. Group 30 which are also I-M223 appear as though they may be part of sub-branch I-CTS1977 but without any SNP testing or upgrade to 67 or 111 markers it is more difficult to predict."

I'm no expert, but I think Wayne meant Group 6 and Group 9 (instead of Group 8).

The family settled around Athens, Ohio and are mentioned in the History of Hocking Valley book. My line of Lowry/Lowery's moved to Farmington, Iowa prior to the Civil War, and added the "e" to Lowry around that time as well.

I'm lost. It says I have 6 new matches. How do I see what my DNA is and who or what I match with?
Richard Dunn
August 16, 2016 @ 3:08pm
Phillip, it depends on which tests you took. YDNA (father) mtdna (mother) or Family Finders which will give you your cousins from both sides. Each test has a list of Matches but the lists look somewhat different. If the match is for YDNA at 12 or 25 markers then we all get those emails every day. What tests did you take?
Phillip Lowery
September 14, 2016 @ 9:31am
I took the 37 YDNA.
Richard Dunn
September 18, 2016 @ 12:19pm
So your emails should tell you 12, 25, or 37. We all get lots of matches at 12 or 25 because they are your very distant relatives and we all have thousands of them. I suggest you upgrade to 67 and those with a genetic distance of 0-1 are your blood kin that you share a grandfather with in the last 8 generations...
