Lowry, Harrison (? - 23 Apr 1912)
A letter was received at this office last week from Mrs. W.H. Lowry stating that Mr. Lowry died April 23, 1912, at Eureka Springs, Ark. After an illness of about a year, from progressive muscular atrophy. Mr. Lowry formerly owned a large farm on the west side of Black River in Levis, Clark County, and followed logging for many years. He was a man of warm heart and strongly attached to his old friends, many of who still live here, and who will be saddened to know of his death.
The following obituary was sent in by a friend:
"Mr. Lowery was an old resident of Levis, came to Clark County soon after the war, married Jennie Higgens in 1871, who died just one year after. In 1873 he married Mary Milton of Oronogo, Mo., who survives him. He will be remembered as a good natured jovial fellow who when on his farm in Levis prided himself on his fine watermelons and strawberries, of which his friends were invited from miles around to share with them. Many persons will remember the good times had at the Lowery farm. He sold his farm about seven years ago, bought the Viroqua Hotel, moving his family there and remained about eight months and sold and went to Eureka, where they lived until he died, his last illness being paralysis. Besides his wife he leaves five children, one daughter, Lois, now Mr. J. Gillard, Orongogo, Roy, Arch, and Bert of Webeily, Mo. And Robert of Eureka Springs and seven grandchildren. One little son, Harry, was drowned in Black River in 1884.
