From Find a Grave:

Son of Robert and Ann Jordan Lowrimore. James married (1) Sarah A. McColl, and (2) Rebecca Annie Williams.

"James Murchinson Lowrimore was born in Horry County SC Jan 23, 1833, and died in Marion, SC, Jan 25, 1911 being 78 yrs and 2 days old.

Brother Lowrimore was blessed with a strong physique, seldom ever being sick. When the war broke out between the States, Brother Lowrimore enlisted in the Tenth SC Infantry, but in 1863 he transferred to the Calvary dept of Service and continued therein until the surrender at Appomattox.

Soon after the war he removed from Horry to Marion County. He joined the Methodist Church at Beaty's Chapel, in Horry County, in 1853, thus spending 58 years of his life a devoted member of this Church. He transmitted the Methodist faith to his children, for eleven out of the twelve children who survive him are members of this grand old church.

He was twice married, his last wife preceding him to the grave six and a half months ago. The writer conversed with Mr. Lowrimore a great deal during his last illness and all was well with him. He seemed anxious to die, for he knew that all would be well. Mr Lowrimore lived a worthy life and died a Christian's death." - Author not known
