WHLowry was raised by the McCoy family from around age 7-9; we believe due to being an orphan. We also have some speculative parents for him from a census in 1850, but its not solid evidence.

RNLowry abruptly left TN and his first wife for unknown reasons (family legend is that he killed a man and fled the state). It is believed that he died in Fannin County or Travis County (in Austin), but no gravestone or death certificate to verify this.

So these two create some rough spots in trying to trace lineage; and WHLowry leaves a dead end.
