E-mail from January, 2009:


I am working on the Aquilla Lowe family from Knox County, Tennessee for our Lowe DNA project at Family Tree DNA in Houston. His son Isaac settled in Sabine County, Texas around 1828. We have two Lowe men from this family in our FTDNA Lowe DNA project.

In working thru the various censuses, I came across this unknown Lowe family in Sabine County in 1850..

Believe this Moses Lowe to be the son of your Andrew R. Lowe.

We can track Aquilla back to Harford, MD. or York County, Pennsylvania.

Can you verify this ?
