From Genealogy of the Child, Childs and Childe Families, Of the Past and Present in the United States and the Canadas, from 1630 to 1881. by Elias Child

"John Lowrie and Catherine Cameron were married by Rev. Mr. McCallan of Ardnamurehau; Catherine was of the Highland clan Cameron. The Lowries were Lowlanders. For many years John resided in Edinburgh, and there several of his children were born. In 1793, he emigrated to America, locating first in Huntingdon county, Pa., but afterwards moved to Butler county where he remained. Despite the difficulties inseperable from rural life, he secured his children an education, the tastes inherited by his posterity leading them into professional life. Mr. Lowrie was known in his new home as a man of ability, energy and integrity. He died Aug. 10, 1840, aged 91."

Find A Grave member, Jo A. McGinnis, responded to my request for a photo of John and Catherine Lowrie's headstones:

"I have been working with the caretaker of this cemetery. It is now photographed at 90%. I have attempted to get a photograph for each request. This burial is in an old section for which there are no written records, only what is on the headstones. Some graves are unmarked and others are so old and are no longer readable. I am sorry we could not find a headstone for you."

I am John and Catherine's 4x great granddaughter. I had visited the cemetery in August in hopes of finding their headstones. I did not find them, but had planned to return and look again. After getting this message from Jo, I think it is safe to say the headstones are either too old to read or are not there. (There are headstones as old or older that can be read.)
