  • Billie Girardeau, in his Ancestry World Tree on the Lowerys and Mullinaxes (http://awtc.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:2324130&id=I510293360) reports Thomas Lowery's wife as Sarah Richardson, rather than Sarah Wilkie. Richardson is Sarah's married name from her first marriage.  Yvette McClung reports in her McClung-Jacobson Family Tree (http://awtc.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=yrmcclung&id=I0954), that Sarah was married to a Richardson before she married Thomas Lowery.  I have found no record of children from the first marriage, nor the first name of her husband surnamed Richardson.

    Sarah Richardson
    Spouse: Thomas Lowrey
    Marriage 1780 Rowan County, North Carolina

    This transcription of the date as 1780 is from the printout of a computer database.  It is quite possible that the handwritten 1786 was misread and entered into the computer as 1780.  Another record indicates the uncertainty of the lst number of the year.
