JOSEPHUS  HYDE  LOWREY   ( 12/2/1846 – 12/6/1919 )   			11/26/11

Joseph was born in the Town of Grove on 12/2/1846, the son of Philip and Harriett Hyde Lowrey.  
In 1850 he and his family were in the Town of Independence census.  Between 1850 and 1860 they 
moved to the Kysorville area.  Joseph's siblings were Lucinda (b.abt. 1845), James Frank (b.1850),
 Margaretta (b.1854-1855), and Malinda (b.1865).

Joseph enlisted in the 21st NY Cavalry on 1/3/1864 at Sonyea and was mustered into Company E 
on 1/14/1864 in West Sparta.  He was given a $50 “sign-up bonus”.  Records (Liber 69 page 222) 
show that he bought property for $200 in Kysorville on 3/28/1864.  The property was bordered by 
the Kysorville-Dansville road on the east, the Kysorville-Byersville road on the west, a gully 
on the north, and a school house lot on the south.  He sold the land in 1867.  He was discharged 
from Company C on 7/3/1866 at Camp Collins, Colorado.  Exploits of the 21st Cavalry can be found 
in the book SABRES IN THE SHENANDOAH by John C. Bronnell, Jr.  

Josephus married Mary Claus in November 1867.  She was born in Germany, probably Stralsund, 
and came to USA in 1853.  Mary’s parents were Michael (b. 4/15/1822  d. 12/13/1872) and 
Hellan (Knonel) (b. 8/10/1824  d. 6/14/1890).  Her siblings were:
	Charles (7/8/1849 – 9/1/1922)  m. Jennie Barcalo (1/26/1843 – 12/15/1898) -had no kids
	Michael b. around 1854 in USA.   married Mina lived in Schenectady
	Hellan (Ella) b. 1857  d. 1939  married Hartenstein
	Rose b. 1865  d. 1946  m. Robert McKay , had Carl and Helen lived in Mt. Morris

The Lowreys and Clauses were neighbors from at least 1860 when Joe was 13 and Mary was 9.  
In the 1860 and 1865 census Joseph and his family were in Kysorville, West Sparta .  
However, records show Joe as being in the cavalry in 1865 and his unit was en route to 
Colorado at census time.  

In the 1870 census for Groveland, Joseph, with Mary and baby Charles, were at house #252, 
the Claus's lived in #240 and Phillip's family (Joseph’s parents) lived at #255.  
It had to be pleasant.  For reference, the Shakers were in houses #237 and #238.

In 1875, Joe with Mary, Charles and William were in household #112 and Harriett's 
(Joseph’s widowed mother) family was at #113.  Phillip had probably died before 1875.  
I don't know where the Claus's were in 1875.

Joseph and Mary lived in Groveland in 1880, Mount Morris in 1900, and Nunda in 1910.

In 1915 Joseph and Mary bought 20 acres near Tuscarora on the South side of Hoagland 
Road about 100 feet west of Begole Road.  The 1917 Farmers' Directory lists him as a 
farmer, growing hay and beans.

Joseph died on 12/6/1919 and Mary died on 9/19/1920.  They are buried in Oakwood 
Cemetery in Nunda in Section c, lot 39 along with daughter-in-law Laura Lowrey 
(William's first wife) and Ethel Lowrey Smith (William's daughter from Laura).  
William bought the graves in 1903 when Laura died.  Joseph's brother Frank and 
Frank's wife Emma are in Section d, lot 38.  Elmer and wife Catherine are buried nearby. 

Josephus’s and Mary’s four children were:
Charles G.    b. 9/16/1868  d. 9/25/1943

age 8.  Newspaper states that she was daughter of Elmer but the 1900 census shows her 
in the household of Charles and identifies her as daughter.  Elmer would have been 
only 15 when Daisy was born but so too was Grace.  See Elmer for her.

plots on 3/24/1900 .. Laura died 3/23/1900

(8:15 am and 4:46 pm) weekdays and 1 - 4:46 pm on Sundays and through 
Tuscarora .. a 1 hr. ride.  Similar schedule for southbound leaving Tuscarora 10:00 am 
everyday and 6:30 pm on weekdays.  So it wasn't too hard for William to stay in touch with his family.

 December 2, 1846. At the age of 17 he enlisted in the Twenty-first Regiment, New York 
 Cavalry, giving his age as 18, “one big lie that he soon was sorry be had old,” as he

 and a-half years of the struggle, after which be served another year in the 
 “Pony Riders Express,” guarding the stage over the Ben Holiday line from La Army to 
 Salt Lake City, from the menace of Indiana and outlaws. In November, 1867, he was

JAMES FRANK LOWREY - 11/6/1850 - 3/4/1903                        5/8/11

James, normally know as Frank, was the son of Philip and Harriett Hyde Lowrey and the 
brother of Lucinda, Joseph, Margaretta, and Malinda.  He married twice.  His first wife, 
Myrtle Lee (1863-1/1889), daughter of Charles Lee and Margaret Levey, gave him 3 children; 
namely, Mary, Alice, and Albert.  He then married Emma Jane Crowley and she gave 
him 5 children; namely, Elizabeth, Georgia, Clarence, Ruth L., and Flora.
 Census of 1900 for Mount Morris, newspaper reports, and other data show children as:
	Mary A. 6/1879 - 5/15/1952		Elizabeth  12/13/1893-10/3/1956
	Alice   6/6/1886 -8/3/1956		Georgia    11/19/1895-7/1951
	Albert  6/1886 - 10/20/1918		Clarence   7/1898-?
						Ruth L.  3/7/1901-9/17/1971
						Flora   10/11/1902 -8/3/1987
Frank and Emma are buried in Nunda at Oakwood Cemetery in Sec D lot 38.

Mary A. married William Edwards on 8/15/1903 and the 1920 census shows 12 year old daughter Beulah 
and 3 yr old daughter Myrtle.  They lived in the Tuscarora, NY area.
	Beulah 11/18/1907 - 8/6/1998 married twice.  First to a Johnson and had
		 William 1927 - 1/1/1994 who m. Elizabeth and had 2 daughters and a son
		Secondly married Gordon Ricketts 4/21/1907 - 3/22/1995 lived in Greigsville. 
		In 1957 they owned the Countryside Inn at the corner of routes 20 and 36 in Caledonia.
	Myrtle 5/8/1916 - 3/22/1992 married Robert Evans and had a son.  She moved to Lockport.

Alice married Albert Miller. They lived in Warsaw and had no children.  

There is a little confusion over Albert.  His sister Mary had a sister-in-law, 
Catherine (Katie) Edwards, who was married to an Albert Lowrey.  Probably our 
Albert but 1910 census shows Katie as married and she and her 2 year old 
daughter Alberta (Maude) living with Katie's 55 year widowed mother with no 
mention of Albert.  They were living "next door" to Charles Claus on Begole 
Road near Hoagland.  Charles was Joseph Lowrey's brother-in-law.  Also, somewhat 
interesting, in 1910 another family was living with the widowed Charles Claus 
and it probably was Katie's sister Allie's family (husband Alvah Raymond Levey, 
Allie Edwards Levey, and son Alvah Raymond)  The 1915 census shows Albert living 
with his sister Mary's family but no mention of Katie.  In 1918 Albert moved to 
Homewood, IL, caught pneumonia and died.  The 1920 census of Nunda shows a 
Katie A. Lowrey with 12 year old daughter Maude C. (Alberta?) in house # 231.

Elizabeth married George Peterson and settled in Rochester.
Georgia married Grant Ellis and had 4 boys and 1 girl.
Clarence married Edith McLeod and may have settled in Broome County.
Ruth L.* married Harry Barber, had 2 boys and 3 girls and settled in Perry, NY.
Flora married twice -first to Edward DeGroat, then to Burr Miller.  They lived in Hornell.

Frank was a railroad gandy dancer and had lived most of his life in the Kysorville, Sonyea, 
and Tuscarora areas.  When he died his widow Emma bought property near her parents in Oakland 
just west of Nunda altho Emma with 4 kids and her father show up in the 1910 Hornell census. 
Emma shows up in Cuylersville with a Clarence and “5” children in the 1917-1922 Rural 
Directory of Livingston County.

*Ruth's great grandson, Randy Knowles, developed a family tree for Frank Lowrey's descendants on 

LUCINDA ANN, MARGARETTA AND MALINDA LOWREY 11/27/08 Lucinda Ann, Margaretta and Malinda were the daughters of Philip and Harriet Hyde Lowrey. They were raised in the town of Groveland around Kysorville and Sonyea. Lucinda Ann b. 12/1843 d. 11/19/1916. Margaretta b. 9/1854 d. bet. 1900 and 1910 Malinda b. 11/1864 d. 12/1937 Lucinda Ann married a widowed neighbor, Staats Thompson of West Sparta, who had 2 kids; Abram Schuyler and Staats. In 1860 West Sparta Stats Sr. was living with his mother and siblings and Abram S. in house #421. Lucinda Ann, 17, was living with her parents in house #439. Stats Jr. was living with an older couple (his first wife's parents) named Passage, house #523, next door to Staats Sr.'s brother Henry. My hunch is that Staats' first wife, Elizabeth, died between 1852 and 1860 and Schuyler and Staats Sr. moved in with Staats' mother. Staats Jr. went to live with the Passages. Staats Sr. and Lucinda Ann married between 1860 and 1864 and had 6 kids: Charles 1865 Elizabeth 1872 Josephus 1877 Willie 1868 Catherine 1874 Jay 1888 In 1870, Staats Jr. and Schuyler and Schuyler's wife Bell (Belvia), were living with Staats Sr. and Lucinda Ann along with Charley and Willie. Margaretta married Loami Pelton and they were living in Cuylersville in 1880 and 1900. The 1900 census shows a son, 14, Luther who was Luther Cleveland. Cleveland became a vet and lived in Seattle, WA with wife Grace Goodnow. I believe that they had no kids. Malinda married John Henry Strayline and they were living in Cuylersville in 1900. John probably died between 1900 and 1910 and Malinda continued to live there until her death in late December, 1937. They had a son John, b. 1902, who was still living with Malinda in 1930. He died in Perry, NY on 1 Dec. 1959. An interesting aside. In 1880 John Henry Strayline was living with his mother 12 houses from Margaretta Pelton. John’s brother was 5 houses from the Peltons. My guess is that when Malinda’s mother died after 1880 Malinda went to live with her sister Margaretta and met John Henry.

January, 2012 UPDATE

Lucinda Ann (b. 12/1843 or 1842 d. 11/19/1916) was the daughter of Philip Lowrey and
 his second wife Harriet Hyde  and the sister of Josephus, James Frank, Margaretta 
 Pelton, and Malinda Strayline..  She was born in the Town of Independence, Allegany 
 County, and raised in the town of West Sparta around Kysorville.  
Lucinda Ann married a widowed neighbor, Staats (Voorhes Davidse) Thompson 
(11/1822 - 5/1901) of Kysorville who had 2 children; Abram Schuyler and Staats (Jr.) 
from a previous marriage to Elizabeth Ann Passage.    According to the 1900 census 
Staats and Lucinda were married 39 years, therefore probably married late 1860 or 1861.  	

Staats' first wife, as reported on family trees on, died in 1858.  
In 1860 West Sparta the widowed Staats (Sr) was living with his mother and siblings 
and son Abram S. (Schuyler) in house #421.  Lucinda Ann Lowrey, 17, was living with 
her parents in house #439 about a ¼ mile away.  Staats Jr. was living with his maternal 
grandparents John and Catherine Passage, house #523, next door to Staats Sr.'s brother Henry. 

Lucinda had 6 children with Staats but only 4 were living at the time of the 1900 census.
                   Children were:
	Charles 1865-10/30/1890   Elizabeth 1872 -before 1900	Josephus 9/1876 - 1/13/1949
	William 1868		        Catherine 2/1874-11/6/1927	Jay  9/1888 - 1958 
In 1865 Ann (Lucinda) and Staats were living in Kysorville in the frame hotel that they 
owned with Schuyler and Staats (Jr).

In 1870 Staats Sr. and Lucinda Ann along with Charley, Willie, Staats Jr. and Schuyler 
and Schuyler's wife Bell (Belvia) were living together in West Sparta.  Census shows 
Ann's age as 48 and not 28 which was probably an enumerator's mistake. 

In 1880, house #160, there were Staats Sr., Lucinda A., Charley, Willie, Elizabeth, 
Catherine, and Josephus.  
In 1900, house #184, were Staats, Ann, and Jay H., 11 years old and in 1910, house #112, 
there were Ann L. and Jay H.
Schuyler (11/1847 - 4/2/1921) married Belvia L. Hartman (8/1852 - 12/27/1929) and had 
daughter Minnie and stayed in West Sparta and is in the 1880, 1900, 1910 and 1920 censuses.  
Minnie (6/1875 - 1960) married John Moffat (12/1870 - 1917).  She shows up in the 1880 
through 1930 West Sparta censuses.  The 1900 census shows John and Minnie as 
married 8 years (about 1892) and having lost 2 children before 1900.  John's cousins 
report that John and Minnie had 7 children and 5 died young from a flu epidemic.  Lila 
and Lenabelle were in the 1910 census.  Lenabelle was with Minnie in the 1930 Census.  
John, Minnie, and Lila are buried in Oaklawn cemetery.  Some of the other children are 
buried in Kysorville cemetery.
Lila (Leila) (3/1900 - 1960) m. John B. Cosline of Buffalo.  The 1928 Buffalo Directory 
shows John living alone at 349 Roslyn and the 1933 Directory shows Lila living there alone.  
John may have died or left.  Lila reverted to her maiden name and returned to West Sparta 
to be a teacher at the Red School House.  There is a John Cosline in later Buffalo directories.
Lenabelle (Lena) (9/28/1908-10/1979) m. Stephen M. Holleran (10/11/1909 - 6/17/1972) 
of Elmira in mid Aug. 1941.  They had a daughter.  In the 1949 Elmira City Directory 
they lived at 417 ½ W Clinton.  Lenabelle was a teacher at School 11 and Stephen worked 
at the Elmira Refornatory.
Staats Jr. (as States) (1852 - 1917) and wife Mary E. Coe (1857 - 1915) show up in 
Portage in 1900 with 5 children and in Nunda in 1910.  His children and some descendants 
are in family trees on under Staats or States. 
	Floyd, 11/1878 - 7/12/1944, m. Mabel Wilmarth, 1884 - 3/12/1949, and had 5 sons 
	and 4 			daughters.
	Elizabeth F. (Lizzie), 11/1882 - 1/28/1951, m. Clark R. Berry, had no recorded children
	Jessie Mae, 7/23/1888 - 7/4/1949, m. Frank Butler and had 1 son and 8 daughters.
	Lewis Coe, 4/11/1892 - 11/3/1917, m. G. Halstead, had Bernard 1916 - 1991
	Clayton, 4/1897 - 3/4/1976, had 1 child, that I know of, probably a son b. 1922

Charles (Charley) died at age 24 in a horrible accident.  According to reports in 
newspapers, including the Mount Morris Union Constitution of 11/6/1890, Charles was 
helping to butcher some pigs and while dragging a carcass to the scalding vat his 
hook broke and he fell, head first, into the boiling water.

William according to two newspaper reports was living in Grand Rapids, MI in 1921.

Elizabeth died before the 1900 census and details of her life are elusive.

Catherine married Charles S. Kennedy (b. 11/1865) (son of Thomas Kennedy and Minerva Frazer).  
They show up in the 1900 census with Charles mother Minerva and the census shows them
 married 1 year (1899) and having 1 child that died before the 1900 census.  Catherine, 
 as Katherine, shows up in the 1910 and later censuses without Charles, but she is with 
 Grace (b.1901), Mildred (1903), & Dorothy (1906).  In 1910 West Sparta Hse# 103 
 (as Katharine Lemings - transcriber's poor eyesight) she has niece Jennie Thompson 
 (Joe's daughter) with her.  Later, Katherine is in Dansville.  She was killed in an 
 auto accident in Rochester, NY on 11/6/1927.  Her obit shows Charles as her husband.  
 Charles apparently had some medical or mental problems and may have been incarcerated.  
 When a relative died and named Charles in the will Catherine was named as his legal guardian,

Minerva Grace (7/23/1901 - 7/26/1991) m. David Caldwell (Colwell) (4/29/1895 - 4/1966)
 of Groveland and had 3 sons.  The surname varied from Colwell to Caldwell but SSDI and obits show Caldwell. 

Mildred Anna (5/12/1904 - 8/1975) m. George H. Rohnke (1/11/1903 - 4/1987) on 9/24/1938 and had 
	Daughter (7/2/1939) m. living
	Dorothy (9/16/1941 - 7/23/2005) m. living, lived in Monroesville, PA and they had
		2 sons and a daughter
According to the Rochester City Directory, in 1937 Mildred was working as a clerk in the same 
factory as George.  In 1940 they were living at 849 Glide and in 1948 they were at 30 Rosalind.

Dorothy m. a Truesdale …..she was the matron of honor to Mildred and was living in Washington, DC.  
May have remarried a Smith and had son Ray Smith. 
Josephus (as Joseph) is in 1900 Livonia census with wife Helen and daughter Jennie.  He and his 
family are shown in an tree titled Blackaby Family Tree.  It appears that he married 
Helen Coon, b. 5/1878, and had Jennie Kathryn (10/11/1896 - 1970) (Jane Gridley SSDI).  
Helen apparently died before 1910 and Jennie went to live with her Aunt Catherine - Katherine.  
On 10/25/1910 Joseph married Mary Lousia Matteson (1890 - 1918) and they had Edwin James (1911 - 1992) 
and Hazel Ruth (1916 - 1994).  It looks like two of Joseph's wives died young.  Edwin and Hazel 
went to live with their grandmother Matteson in Leicester, NY and in 1930 were with her in Detroit, 
Wayne County, MI at 7061 Senator Ave.  Joseph somehow got to Newburyport, MA where he died on 1/13/1949.

Jennie (aka Jane) married Charles R. Williams and had Helen and Lucille 
	Helen Isabelle (7/8/1916 - 3/11/1988) m. Douglas Brouwer Nevins on 7/30/1938 			
	(Brooklyn Daily Eagle 8/2/1938).  Lived on Long Island, had 3 daughters; 
	Lucille (8/17/1917 - 9/22/1987) m. James D. Morgan (2/13/1915 - 3/1993) 
		lived in Dansville and had no children.
		Jennie m 2nd Kenneth L. Gridley (b 1912 Alfred d 2003 Bath)

Edwin married Catherine Stivic and had Norman Joseph (1938 - 2001) and a daughter.
	Norman married twice, a Stevens and a Sebis and had one daughter.

Hazel married Clayton Harris and had Mae Lousia (1935 - 1988)
	Mae married Lawrence Blackaby and had a son and a daughter.

Jay H. shows up in the 1920 and 1930 North Dansville censuses with wife Cora Chesbro (1886 - 1953) 
and daughter Dorothy.  He was raised around Kysorville and Byersville. He, Cora, and Dorothy were 
living on Old Canal Road between Hartman and Dansville-Mount Morris Roads in the 1920 census.  
In 1930 they were on Cummersville Road.  Cora has a tombstone in Oaklawn cemetery next to
 Earl R.Jones (1893 - 1958) (father of Howard Jones).  Jay has a tombstone in Green Mount Cemetery.
       	Dorothy Onolee (1/20/1914 - 1/4/1997) married Howard Russell Jones (4/14/1916-3/1987???), 
		son of Earl Jones and Isabelle Moffat, on 5/28/1937 and had

According to LDS data Staats (Lucinda's husband) died 5/3/1899 although he shows up in the 1900 census. 
 The Nunda News of 5/18/1901 reported that Staats," nearly 80, died recently".
