I am searching for more information on John Lowthian (many different spellings) who married Permelia/Primecia McGirk in Howard County, MO in 1839. I believe Permelia passed away in 1849 because John appears with the children in 1850 and some of the children in 1860. He is living with his son, John, in 1870. Some census records indicate his birth is in England and one indicates KY. His children are Martha Ann who married Stephen Callaway, Sarar/Sallie who married Davenport Burris, John and Isaac. Any help would be appreciated.
