Who was the wife of George Lowery?

+5 votes
This profile claims, without source, that he was married to a specific Native American woman, and a documented daughter of documented Cherokee Oo Loo Tsa.

What is the evidence or documentation supporting this relationship? Thanks.

Emmet Starr, "History of the Cherokee Indians,"  p. 366


11 Oo-loo-tsa, of the Holly Clan

12 11 Ghi-go-ne-li

11 12 13  Nannie.  George Lowrey

            2     Ghi-go-ne-li

David K. Hampton, "Cherokee Mixed Bloods,"  p. 108

"Elizabeth Lowrey, daughter of George Lowrey and Nannie (a full-

blood Cherokee)…."

James Hicks claims with ZERO documentation that Nannie was the daughter of Trader/Interpreter John Watts.

Kathryn, should Nannie's LNAB then be Cherokee and not Watts? We have several duplicates of her.
We currently have Ghi-go-ne-li (#1; mother of Nannie) as married to Kenoteta (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Kenoteta-1) and therefore showing up as Nannie's father. Any source for this? Or is this Internet-mythology at work as well?
I think this may be generational confusion as well as speculation. James Hicks states that Nannie’s sister Ghi go ne li married a man named Rising Fawn (Kineteah) based on a very convoluted reading of Norton’s Journal).  I don’t find Kineteah other than in Norton.  Hicks lists the Caty/Catherine who married John Gunter as "Catherine Risingfawn."
I'm not sure I follow all that (grin), but could you update the profiles based on this, pretty please?
Sorry I was not more clear.  There was a man by this name, but it's uncertain whether he belongs to this family.  If he does, he's attached to the wrong woman, should be with Ghi go ne li the daughter, not the mother.  I'll remove him with a note.
Thanks, kathryn.

If you follow this link and go to page 200 you you'll see  Major George Lowery was married to Lucy Benge when he was about 21 years old. This is late 1700's.  My ancestors are the Gunter's for which Guntersville (Gunter's Landing), Alabama was named.  Our history is intertwined with the Lowery's.  Anyway I hope this is what you were looking for.  I know this is an old post but I am new here and doing what I can to help.

George the son was married to Lucy Benge, his father George was married to Nannie LNU.
Thank you Kathie. I guess I hadn't gone far enough back. Hopefully I'll get the hang of all of this one day soon :-) Thanks again.
