Civil War Service - The Three Lowery sons

Today I present the first of a number of posts for this Civil War series of my ancestors in the U.S. Census data where some of the young men later served in the Civil War. The Lowery family is a great one to start, because they had at least three young men serve in the Union army. Actually, two of the three have been featured in prior Tombstone Tuesday postings, with their gravestones showing they led long lives after their service. The 1850 U. S. Census image is from, and the following is copied from their transcriptions:

Frederick Lowery Age: 61 Estimated birth year: abt 1789 Birth Place: Virginia Color: White Gender: Male Home in 1850 (City,County,State): Harrison, Henry, Indiana
[fifth row down from the top]:
Frederick Lowery 61, Ann Lowery 38, Henry Lowery 19, Isaac Lowery 16, Walter Lowery 14*, Ann E Lowery 13, Francis M Lowery 5**, Philander Lowery 2**, Catharine M Lowery 0, John Conner 31, Harriet Conner 22, Lucinda E Conner 10

* Walter Lowery, 14: (1835-1914) Private/Sergeant, Co. I, 69th Indiana Infantry Volunteers

**Francis M. Lowery, 5:  (1844-19320 Private, Co. I, 69th Indiana Infantry Volunteers. Frances and his wife, Harriet DRAPER, had two children.

***Philander Lowery, 2: (1847-1914) Private/Sergeant, Co F, 57th Indiana Infantry)

Families are Forever!  ;-)

  1. Hi there. Any idea what became of the Isaac of this family perhaps? I'm looking for an Isaac Lowery born 1838 in Indiana. He was also on the Union side - Co G 55th Reg Indiana Inf. He ended up in Kansas by 1884 at the latest.
