The Allen Lowrance family
of Sitka, Alaska
When I was reading a book in 2002 that I had just borrowed from my new-found
4th cousin Gerald Witt, I discovered the family of my friends in Sitka. Gerald's
book The History of Eastern Kerr County, Texas, has them on pages
135 to 137.
Previously, I had determined that my friends here in Sitka were related to
a 3rd cousin of mine with the surname of Lowrance. Both families had told
me anyone with their exact spelling had to be cousins, and I did find a genealogy
to connect the families. My third cousin is related to my Grandfather by
his Claire family, while Gerald and I are related thru Grandfather's grandmother
who was the McFadin.
The late Allen Lowrance of Sitka came here from California
when I was a baby. His son Daniel was born the same day and year as I, but
in California. We grew up together.

Hiding my address underneath to avoid

to type in my email address from the picture file above. Perhaps you will
also have to verify that you are a real person and not a robot if you are
not in my mailing list. I apologize, but I know of no other good way to limit
the junk mail.
