My family reports that the earliest known Lowry was a Samuel Lowry, born around 1790, died in 1839, who was a successful woolen merchent. He helped bring many of his relatives from Ireland over to Canada. I don't know how he fits in; perhaps an uncle of Robert.
R. W. Lodge says that Robert's father was James, and James was alive (still in Ireland, I think) at the time of Robert's death.
R. W. Lodge has Robert Lowry's bible, purchased in Downpatrick, Ireland, on February 16, 1827.
Several generations of Lowrys are recorded in it. Here it shows Robert's children.
