Biography of William Lowe
Hancock County, OH Biographies

WILLIAM LOWE (deceased) was born July 27, 1803, in York County, Penn., where he there married, March 8, 1832, Miss Sarah Hendricks, who was born in Baltimore County, Md., March 1, 1812. Our subject and wife came to Richland County, Ohio, in the fall of 1837, and, after three years' residence there, finally located on land they had previously purchased in Jackson Township, this county. Here they began to clear up and develop theft farm, which was yet an unbroken wilderness. They had first entered eighty acres of land, to which they afterward added eighty acres and then forty acres, the farm now consisting of 200 acres of well improved land. Mr. and Mrs. Lowe reared a family of three children: Melchi, now living at home; Mrs. Tirbah Jane Ann Fahl, and Sylvester. William Lowe, the subject of this sketch, died August 22, 1876. He was a life long Democrat. He and his wife were early members of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Mrs. Lowe now occupies the family homestead. Melchi Lowe, who resides with her, was born September 21, 1833. He was prostrated, in 1851, by a severe attack of typhoid fever, which partly deprived him of the use of his lower limbs. He is a gentleman of good education and mental culture. Sylvester E. Lowe married Miss Susan Foster, December 18, 1874, and is now farming a part of the homestead farm.
