STEPHEN LOWLEY, Postmaster of Tipton, was born in England, January 18, 1819. He grew to manhood in his native
country, learning, in the meantime, the tailor's trade. He emigrated to America in 1845, and worked at his trade
in Boston, Hartford, Concord, New York, Philadelphia, Nashville and Memphis, Tenn. In 1853, he located at Indianapolis,
and in 1856 came to Tipton, where he has since resided. He is a Republican, and has always been prominent in the
politics of his party. He was appointed Postmaster toward the close of Lincoln's first administration, and has
held that position continuously ever since, and in connection therewith he has carried on the tailor's trade. He
has been twice married, first in England, in 1840, to Miss Martha Jackson, who died in Pittsburgh while he was
there working at his trade; the second marriage occurred in Indianapolis, in 1854, to Miss Sarah C. Haugh. By his
first wife, he has one child, George W.; by his second, one child, Ardella. Mr. Lowley, although in his sixty fifth
year, is still to be found at his post. He is a genial, sociable old gentleman, and is so closely identified with
the best part of Tipton's career, that any history of the county, with his biography omitted, would be incomplete.
He owns a very nice residence in Tipton, opposite the Presbyterian Church.
