I am looking for any information
on the Frederick and Elizabeth Morrison
LOWER family. I have some info, enough to know that they were in the
Page/Taylor county area at the time of the 1870 census. They had been
in Elizabeth twp, Miami county OH in the 1860 census. It appears that
Frederick died in 1915 in Hawleyville and Elizabeth died in 1918 near
New Market. I believe they are buried in the Guss Cemetery.
One of their sons (my great grandfather),
Harry LOWER married Martha
Elizabeth HELLER 11 Nov 1890 in Nodaway, Taylor IA. Harry and Martha's
daughter Grace Ellen LOWER married James Beryl BENTLEY 18 June 1919.
They lived all their lives in the area and were living in Clarinda when
they died. I believe their daughter Madalene BABCOCK and her daughter
Teresa (BABCOCK?) still live in Clarinda.
Harry and Martha and at least
one of their sons, Clarence Cyril LOWER
(my grandfather), moved to southern California (Riverside) around 1920.
Another son, Shelby, died in California.
I would like to find someone who
knows the history of the family. I am
particularly interested in finding out about Frederick's father
Christian LOWER. He apparently died in Ohio before Frederick moved to
Iowa. The census records indicate Christian was born in Germany.
Thanks for any help.
