Do you know anyone who lived [or lives] on Lowrie Street?
Here are my relatives that had a residence there once upon a time:
Death record states that Helen ‘Ellen’ Wohleber Unversagt lived at 29
Lowry Street in the 13th Ward for a period of one year before her death in 1890.
Louis Simon lived at both 100 Lowrey (Lowrie?) and at 1713 Lowrey Street in
“ ... found a postcard addressed to Louis (not Lewis) Simon at 1713 Lowry
St., Troy Hill, N.S. Pitts. [North Side, Pgh., PA.]
Residence of Louis Simon. oldest son of Louis and Susanna SMITH SIMON,
lived at 100 Lowrie and Edward H. Simon lived at 1713 Lowrey Street in Troy Hill
in Pgh. [1930’s]; then moved to Chillicothe, Ohio
“ ... they lived at 100 Lowrie St....Susan was something like 90 at the time
and lived at that address ...” in 1930. Perhaps this plot of land:
On April 4, 1889 Jacob Eichler sold to Suzanna Simon, wife of Louis Simon,
for $500, a plot of land in Ward 13 of Allegheny County (See: Deed Book #1026,
Dr. H.M. Lewis of 14 Lowrie St
Residence of Florentz Alphonse Wohleber at death: in 1904 was 27 Lowrie
St., Troy Hill, Allegheny City,13th Ward, PA.
In the Directory of Pittsburgh and Allegheny cities, 1877-1878 Jacob EICHLER
is listed as working in or owning a variety store and living at 32 Lowrie St.
in Troy Hill
Friends are being received in the Miller Funeral Home, 1550 Lowrie St.
Troy Hill Citizens Council office, 1619 Lowrie St., Pittsburgh 15212;
… Their parents, Florentz Alphonse and Helena Simon Wohleber would retire
from the farm and establish a residence on Lowrie Street on Troy Hill;
US Census of 1930 lists Robert A. SIMON 46, a widower, living with his
sons: Robert L .21, Allan 20, and Paul 11, at 1634 Lowrie St. in the 24th Ward
of Pittsburgh, PA.
And the root of it all may be:
US Census: of 1860 lists Jacob Esterle 30, living with the Lowrie family as a
servant man … Walter Lowrie 53, is the head of the household and his
profession is PA. Chief Justice. His wife, Rachel 50, and his son, James A. 29, an
attorney also live there.
And a living descendant?:
Mary Wohleber's latest book is: History of the City of Allegheny Fire
Department, 1828-1907, published in 2001. A review of which was published in the
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on August 24, 2002 by Patricia Lowry <
