Calvin was the son of Allen and Mary Cumbo Lowry. He married Maria Sampson on March 11, 1858 in Robeson county, North Carolina. Their marriage produced seven sons and five daughters.

At least five of their sons served as Methodist ministers. Their son Rev. Doctor Fuller Lowry was one of the most prominent Lumbees and served on the Board of Directors for the North Carolina outdoor drama "Strike at the Wind." "Strike at the Wind" depicts the struggles of Henry Berry Lowrie (also Lowry or Lowery) to overcome oppression during and after the Civil War. Henry Berry was Calvins's older brother.

Amazingly, four of Calvin and Maria Lowry's children lived to be 100 years old or older (B. W. Lowry [100], Annie Bell Lowry Moore Spaulding [100], Rev. F. R. Lowry [102], and Nancy Lowry Revels [102]). Two other children, Rev. Doctor Fuller Lowry (mentioned above), lived to age 96, and Deborah Lowry Woodell, lived to age ninety-three.

  • **NOTE: His birth year was closer to 1838 according to the 1850 Federal Census.
