From the United States Federal Census 1900

Obediah Lowery age 43 Birth Date  March 1857 Home in 1900 Beat 4, Wayne, Mississippi  Birthplace Florida married to Martha Lowery (no age given) Marriage year 1875 Number of years married 25

Father's Birthplace Florida

Mother's Birthplace Alabama

Occupation Farmer

Other occupants: Martha Lowrey Wife Lee Lowrey Son age 13.

The 1880 census shows them in the same place but with a John Lowery age 3 and lillie lowrey age 10 months.

A quick look at the internet reveals this page with deatils of Martha's parents, and there's a picture of both she and Obediah there too.
