    During the winter of 1858-59 Dr. Andrew J. Lowe gave instruction in an informal manner to a party of young men at his home in the Ninth District, The young men formulated their own rules, and met and adjourned at their pleasure* their instructor joining them when his business affairs permitted. Some of those who had the benefit of his instruction were Samuel G. Jones, Thomas Lomax, John F. M. Fain, Wesley Morrison, Pleasant Poore, Samuel Woolard, Amsel Murphree, William Burchard, Jared C. Frazier, W. J. D. Spence, “ Bud ” Woolard, and Henry Lowe. Dr. Lowe, who was a son of Maj. Lewis Lowe, was a good physician, but preferred farming. He was a member of the Forty-Sixth General Assembly, and died during the term.

    On April 24, 1859, a hurricane of violence unparalleled in the county’s history swept across the Ninth District from southwest to northeast. Fences, or- chards, and outbuildings were destroyed. Maj. Lewis Lowe’s residence was unroofed, and a tree falling across the residence of John A. Jones was perhaps what saved it from being blown off the bluff into the river. In Lowe’s Bend the walls of Josiah Gotham’s house were blown away, together with all of the furniture, except the chair in which Gotham sat. Bedclothes and wearing apparel were found miles away.

    The early settlers of Wolf Creek, so named on account of the large number of wolves which infested its hills, were Henry Sawyers, John Duff, the Devineys, the Bakers, the Blackwells, Henry Powell, and Ammons, who was the owner of a small water mill. Rans Peppers, of this creek, was one of the principals in the "rough-and-tumble fight” which took place at the Lomax muster grounds in 1858. The other principal was Willie Forrester, who yet lives on Sugar Creek, where he is a. highly respected citizen. Other participants were Maj. Lewis Lowe, Chambers, Thornton Scott, and a. brother of Rans Peppers, on the Peppers side; and Bright Forrester (who was left-handed), Richard Forrester, Stephen Forrester, and Carroll Forrester, on the Forrester side. This was one of the many incidents of a like kind which almost invariably occurred on general muster days.
