Peter P Lowry 1855
My grandfather Peter Lowry (in photo) was born in Ballydoolough townland, county Galway to Peter and Bridget Kyne Lowry. His siblings were Bridget Lowry Loftus of Clonbur, Mary Lowry Malia of Scranton, PA, Catherine and Martin remaining on the homestead. He married Mary Coyne and lived in Minooka section of Scranton, PA near his sister Mary Lowry Malia. Peter and Mary had nine children; Martin, Catherine, Mary, Ann, Ellen, Cecilia, Bridget, Theresa and Peter (aka) Joseph. My father was Martin.
My great-grandfather Peter Lowry lived in Ballydoolough until his death in 1904 at 85. His children Catherine and Martin are listed as still on the farm in the 1911 census. Bridget married Patrick Loftus and remained in Ireland in nearby Clonbur having nine children; Catherine, Patrick, Mary, Bridget, Annie, Thady, Helena, Letetia and John.
I have no verified information on great-grandfather Peter's siblings. There are many Lowrys still in the area but they may or may not have been descendants of Peter's Lowry line.
