PUBLISHED IN THE DESERET NEWS January 30, 1867 DIED--In Manti, Sanpete County, on Monday, January 7, 1867, Elder JOHN LOWRY, Sen., aged 67 years and 5 months, after a severe illness of the lungs, from protracted colds. Deceased was born in Robinson (Robertson) County, Tennessee. He was baptized in Lewis County, Missouri, by Elder Hinkle, in 1832. He removed with his family to Jackson County in 1838 and was expelled with the Saints from that county in the same year. He passed through the subsequent mobbings and drivings in various counties where the Saints had located, and finally was expelled from the State, under the extermination order of Gov. Boggs. He settled afterwards in Lee County, Iowa, and then in Nauvoo, where he remained until the exodus of the Saints in 1846 and arrived in Salt Lake Valley in 1847. He acted as Bishop of the 2nd Ward in G.S.L. City until 1849 when he was selected with others to pioneer and settle Sanpete Valley, continuing the duties of bishop several years, as Bishop of Manti, and was a faithful and energetic man. A few days before his death he called his family around his bed, blessed and exhorted them to remain faithful; and after giving instructions in relation to business, distribution of property, &c., he felt reconciled and departed in peace, in full hope of a glorious resurrection. His remains were interred in the Manti Cemetery on Wednesday 9th, upon which occasion a very large and orderly procession was in attendance. The ceremonies were conducted by Bishop A. J. Moffitt. {Communicated by George Peacock} Inscription: 2D Lt Utah Ter Militia Indian Wars
