RE: Catherine Beckley Lower
Bear with me - We are having a Family Reunion at our home tomorrow Sunday - Will go thru my binders on Monday. We are 80 yrs plus - so need to get things set-up as early as we can!! Did you see Jacob Benjamin Lowers's Will on Ancestry ?? Names his children and the three children of deceased Sarah Catherine. This Family has been a challenge - Jacob's sister - Mahala Lower (my husband's G Grandmother) - Married her FIRST cousin Jeremiah Lower - Son of George Lower!!
The proof of Catherine Beckley being married to Benjamin is this - Mahalah's children were evidently ashamed to put LOWER LOWER as the names for parents on their marriage applications - - so they used Catherine Beckly as the name of their MOTHER!! I have not seen anyone else figure that out!! The Akerboom book has nothing regarding Benjamin & Catherine's marriage. I am a member of the DAR AND Daughter's of 1812 !! Told my husband to go for the SAR - but doesn't want to go thru the hassle!!

RE: Catherine Beckley Lower
There is a GREAT book out there -- "Descendants of Hans Lauer Lower" - by Jack Akerboom (2002) - At many libraries - We saw it in Coshocton and ordered a copy thru Masthoff Press 219 Mill Rd. Margantown, PA 19543 - Was $60.00 - LOADED !! Benjamin and Catherine are mentioned on page 443 .

RE: Catherine Beckley Lower
What part of the Lower family are you researching?? The only "proof" of Catherine's maiden name is from the marriage records of her children.
