Just wanted to ask as question. Are there any records that show that George Smith served in the Revolutionary War? His abt. birth date (1743) would put him about the right time. Thanks Nancy

Subject: [GEORGE-STERLING-SMITH] Sarah Ann Lowery Smith's mother and father

After 18 years of searching I finally found who both parents of Sarah Ann
Lowery were.

Father: Overton Thomas Lowery, son of Aaron and Maple Holland

Mother: Mary Wheeler.

Marriage took place December 24, 1806 in Albemarle County, Virginia
according to the Virginia Marriages 1740-1850 database compiled from various
County records.

Overton and Mary Wheeler Lowery moved to the Edgefield, Davidson County,
Tennessee area where he was engaged in farming Overton is found in several
censuses up to 1860 when only his widow Mary is shown.

The Lowery farm was located less than 10 miles from Edgewood, Edgefield,
Davidson Co. TN the home of Anthony Wayne Johnson and where the Capt. George
Sterling Smith family resided hence Sarah Ann Lowery obtained the position
of housekeeper for the Smith's and hence she met Dr. William Boyce Smith.

If you have any questions let me know.
