JAMES W. LOWRANCE, a prominent citizen of Ohio
Township, is a native of Tennessee, born February 10, 1815, one in a
family of seven children born to David and Sarah (Dobbins) Lowrance, who
were both natives of North Carolina. They first came to Indiana in 1815,
settling in Darlington, the old county seat of Warrick County, where the
father died the year following their settlement. Shortly after their
removal to what is now King Station, the mother married again, and by
her second husband our subject was reared, and with whom he lived until
his mother's death, which occurred in 1833. In youth he received but a
limited education, and April 16, 1848, his marriage with Hannah Fuquay
was solemnized, and to their union seven children have been born: Luther
S., William, John, James A., Joseph G., George W., and Margaret E. (now
Mrs. Walker Duncan). Our subject's principal occupation through life has
been farming, at which he has been very successful, owning 182 acres of
well improved land. In politics he is a stance Republican, and was twice
elected by the people to fill the office of Justice of the Peace, but
did not qualify. He now holds the office of Commissioner of Drainage for
the county. Mr. Lowrance is well known throughout the county, and is
respected by all who know him.
