Notes by Mr. Kirkland: Mary Frances Crow and William Chappell Lowry lived in
Smith Co., TX about 8 miles SE of Tyler in the Bascom community, and are
buried in the Bascom Church Cemetery. All the marriages listed took place in
Smith County, as did the births of their children.
Dock Lowry recalled ca. 1959 that Mark, Russell, and Lawson Lowry were first
cousins of his father William Chappell Lowry.
W.C. was born in AL, his parents in GA, and seems to have lived in MS
sometime before moving to TX.
Mary Frances Crow was born in TN, and her parents in SC or TN, according to
the 1880 and 1900 federal census records, respectively.
