The family tree information you were given is looking good. The 1930 census for Walker Co., GA shows Robert W. Lorance , age 18, as head of household in the Chestnut Flat district. His wife, Lillie, age 20, and they have just had a son, William who appears to be 5 months old. Robert W. is renting his place and says he was 16 when he married Lillie (she was 19). Both were born in Georgia. He is a farmer.

The 1920 census of Catoosa Co., GA lists several Lowrance families living next to each other in Wood Station. Sheet 3B has Charles M. Lowrance, age 19, and wife Olie G and son James M.; then comes Andrew J. Lowrance who appears to be your line; Amos L.Lowrance, age 19 and wife Eva B., age 22; and Willis L. Lowrance, 37, with wife and children; Arthur R. Lowrance, age 29, and family

Andrew J. Lowrance, 52, born Tenn., father born NC, mother born Tenn., farmer
Mandy M. wife, 36, born Georgia, GA-GA
Thomas A., son,18, GA, TN-GA
