I am looking for the names of Catherine Lowe/Low/Law parents. Catherine was born in 1762 and lived in Embden, Maine with her husband John Wilson and children. She died Nov. 4, 1833. I have reached a roadblock with Catherine, when researching her lineage.
She "may" have been related to a Charles Lowe born 1767 who married Betsy Hutchins. Charles died July 28, 1841 and was buried at the West Charleston Cemetery, Maine. My DNA is shared with a small cluster of people who are related to Charles Lowe 1767. I am thinking, Catherine may have been a sister to Charles or a cousin.
Looking forward to hearing any information as to who her parents may have been.
Thank you for your time.
Catherine “Lowe” was my husband’s 4th GGMother, so we are also curious about her parentage. He is from John Wilson > Elijah Wilson > Flavilla Wilson Beals > LaForest Beals > Mildred Ada Beals Darling>
Have you done Ancestry DNA testing? Since my husband has been tested, it makes me wonder whether you are a possible match. I have looked at most of the closest matches and found a few who also had Lowes in their trees, but no Catherine.
Please keep me posted if you are able to get through this roadblock!

I too have looked at DNA matches with Lowe as a common surname. I did find a small cluster of DNA matches with me and a known 2nd grand daughter of Catherine. One name that came up was a Charles Lowe b. 1767 and lived in Charleston, Maine with his wife Betsy Hutchins Lowe. Could Charles be related to Catherine??? I reached a dead end with Charles, just like Catherine.
It was great to hear from you. Catherine Lowe and John Wilson were my 3rd great grandparents. I am descended from their son Jesse Lee Wilson-Allen Wilson-Shadrack Wilson-Lois Priestley Bjork-Kristen Bjork Rossi(me). I did have my DNA tested on Ancestry. Is your husband's tree public? I would like to compare notes with you, if possible. I live in Weare, NH close to New London.
Thanks for the reply, I will look forward to hearing from you.
Since this discussion is moving into DNA results, etc., would you mind contacting me by email? I would be happy to discuss further and share family tree information. I can be reached at: FirstLadyKY@gmail.com
Since I am new to New Hampshire, I am not sure yet what or where is Weare (HA)! I just looked it up and you definitely are close!
I look forward to hearing from you,
