John Williamson Lowe
"Lowe, John Williamson (Nov. 15, 1809-Sept. 10, 1861), lawyer, was born in New Brunswick, N.J. He came to Batavia in 1833 as a printer, studied law under Judge Fishback, and was admitted to the bar in 1836. He practiced in Batavia from 1836 to 1854, except for one year's service in the Mexican War. He practiced law again in Dayton, 1854-55, and in Xenia, 1855-61. He was elected colonel of the 12 O.V.I., and was killed in the battle of Carnifex Ferry."
