Lowrys/Lowerys of West Virginia
There's clearly a great deal of info. on the Lowrys/Lowerys of NC but I'm stuck in those who lived in West Virginia, particularly Hardy County.
1) I've seen a Hardy Co. marriage record for Ruth Lowery and David Gray posted online
I know that Rachel and David Gray's son, Osbourne Gray, reported on two marriage certificates that he was born in Moorefield, Hardy Co. although I've only been able to place my family in Wheeling, WVA.
While I'm not sure if I am a blood relative of Ruth Lowery's, it seems critical to research her to rule that out but to also discover what role this particular county plays with other members of my family.
All of this to say, any help or guidance would be much appreciated. I know I'll need to travel to Hardy County at some point, but this block has me thinking of just jumping in my car and heading there on a whim!
