In taking on this project, I had no idea how consumed I would become and what a wonderful experience it would be.
I have spent four years so far working on it and imagine I will make it a remainder of my life project.
A special thank you to all of those who have gone before me and made what we all do today possible.
I am researching The Lowry's from Ireland and The Britt's from England. These families made their way respectfully to Indiana and Kentucky.
I would love to hear from others and share information.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Danny Jones,David Craig,Mary Hickman,Alisa Beatty,Tom O'Connell,Betty Hatter,Guy Lowry,Wayne Lowry,Charles Lowry and all the other people who helped by supplying photos and information.
This is an on going project so,if any errors are found,I appologize and request input and corrections.
