Indiana Lowrys / Lazarus b:1790

Indiana Lowrys / Lazarus b:1790

Hi, I'm trying to find info for Lazarus Lowry born: 01 May 1790 died 19 October 1852 in Marshall Co, Indiana. Married to Elizabeth Sweak... I have his father listed as James Lowry born 1755 in Ireland died 1810 in Jefferson Co. Ohio, and mother as Ruth ? some say "Peterson" born 1755 in Ireland died after 1793 in Ohio. The problem comes with The father of James listed as Col. Alexander Lowry b: Dec 1723 in Ireland married to Mary Waters 26 Sept. 1752 in Lancaster, PA. Which makes James being born in Ireland in 1755 unlikely...
Do I have the wrong birthplace for JAMES LOWRY? or the wrong father for James Lowry?
I'm new at this so any help anyone has would be great! Thanks

You are correct in that Lazarus is the son of James and Ruth (unknown) Lowry. This James was born in Pennsylvania. He is my g-g-g-great grandfather. His father was also James born In Ireland about 1717. James is a very common name in the Lowry family and there are several others, all in the same area and about the same age. The second James was a brother to Colonel Alexander Lowry. I have other information if you are interested.

Hi, It's Dan Lowry. We talked a while back. Can you please explain to me one more time how James Lowry 1755-1810 is related to James 1717-1780. I've been searching alot, and can't seem to find that Son to Father link anywhere online.

Hi Dan,

Can't put my finger on your phone number. Know I had it as I talked with you sometime ago. Hopefully this will make some sense. If not call me at 812-294-1143.

James (1717-1780) is the son of Lazarus and Elizabeth or Etta Campbell. Lazarus along with his wife and 5 sons immigrated in the early 1700's to Lancaster County Pennsylvania.

James is the oldest son, he married Susannah Patterson about 1747 in Lancaster County Pennsylvania. They had 3 sons that I'm aware of. James (1750-1810), Robert (1752-????), Alexander (1743-????).

James (1750) married Ruth ??????. Their oldest son is Alexander, who married twice. Spouses names unknown. He had 3 children by the first wife and 7 by the second (of which William Harrison is one).

The Sarah Cochran you have listed as Alexander's wife is the third wife of Col. Alexander Lowry (1723-1805). This Alexander is a brother to James (1717-1780).

It is very confusing with all the same name being used one generation after the other. (Lazarus, James, Alexander)

Let me know if you need more. I can send copies of information that I have.
