Birth: Feb. 2, 1861
Bledsoe County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Aug. 20, 1913
Rhea County
Tennessee, USA

W. J. Lowry, was the present polite popular and efficient marshal of the City Of Dayton, he was born in Bledsoe County, six miles north of Pikeville, in the year 1864. He was educated in the schools of his native county finishing the course in Sequatchie College.
He came to Dayton in 1889.He served on the police force of Dayton for two years, during the wild period of the young cityís growth. By his vigilance in detecting evildoers and bringing them to speedy punishment, he soon became a terror to the law-breakers.
He served as city marshal for five years, and has done more to suppress crime, and convert the turbulent element into quiet, law-abiding citizens than all other factors combined.
He was described as being of a quiet, fearless and determined disposition the law-breakers soon learned that he would allow no violator of the law to escape through fear or favor.
While he enforced the law vigorously and fearlessly, as an officer he has always conducted himself, in a quiet, courteous, gentlemanly manner. The city of Dayton appreciates all that he done for our city in itís early growing period.
