About Maria Lowry

Find a Grave

Birth: Mar. 17, 1839 Wilkes County North Carolina, USA

Death: Mar. 16, 1908 Wilkes County North Carolina, USA

Maria was the daughter of Henry and Nancy Carter Sampson. She married Calvin Calhoun Lowry on March 11, 1858 in Robeson county, North Carolina. Their marriage produced seven sons and five daughters.

At least five of their sons were Methodist ministers. Their son, Rev. Doctor Fuller Lowry was one of the most prominent members of the Lumbee Brotherhood (later becoming the lumbee tribe), served on the Board of Directors for the North Carolina outdoor drama "Strike at the Wind." "Strike at the Wind" depicts the struggles of Tuscarora Indian: Henry Berry Lowry (Lowrie) to overcome oppression during and after the Civil War. Henry Berry was the older brother of Calvin Lowry.

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.
