  • Name  Edward LOWTHERS

    • Birth date is according to 1901 census.
    Gender  Male 
    Census  1831  Clondermot, Londonderry, Ireland Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • There is a marriage record of an Edward Lowther in Lisdillon, Glendermott on 28-Jan-1829 to an Elizabeth Kilgore. It's possible this is a first wife based on the age of wife Margerie (13) when Edward's first child Elizabeth was born.
    Census  1861  Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • In the 1861 census for Halifax, Ward 5 Section 2, he is listed with 1 male, 2 females.
      Total 3.
    Census  1891  Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • This 1891 census lists him as age 74 and Marjory as 76, so something doesn't fit with his year of birth!
    Died  28 Nov 1901  West Caledonia, Queens, Nova Scotia Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Living in March, 1901 with daughter, Mary McGinty (spelled McGinti in the census) and her husband John who was an innkeeper in the 1881 census.
      No death records in archives before 1908 so in May 2009 I went to St Jerome's cemetery in West Caledonia and found the headstone, but it was difficult to read. Pretty sure it was Nov 28, 1901.
      Inscription reads
      "Sacred to the Memory of
      Edward Lowther
      Died Nov 23 1901
      aged 88 yrs (although this looks to be in error... should be 91)
      Rest in Peace
      My cousin Don Lowther says he has seen a death notice for Edward dated 1901.
