History of Warrick County - Biographical Sketches - Page 191

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.
