LOWMAN FAMILY

PROVIDED BY Lindsey Lowman-Hager

George Washington Lowman settled in Hernando Co in late 1852. He was born in Lexington Co., SC, Dutch Fork area, on 4 Jan 1837 and died on 25 Nov 1898 and is buried in New Hope Cemetery, Nobleton, FL. George's father was Michael (Lohrman) Lowman and his mother was Jemima Metz both from the Dutch Fork, SC area. 

On 13 Jun 1898, a CSA Pension application was filed with the State of Florida due to disabilities George incurred while serving in the line of duty at Quincy, Fl. He contracted typhoid fever and pneumonia and was left with disabling complications. On 15 May, in Sumter Co., FL, George married Laura Ann Branch. They had two children - Charles Lafayette Lowman (father of Samuel Lowman a former Sheriff of Hernando Co.) and Anzly Irvin Lowman. 

On 17 Mar 1889, George married Lizzie Glover in Hernando Co., FL. They had two children, Solomon Franklin Lowman and George Washington Lowman, Jr. Both Laura and Lizzie are buried in New Hope Cemetery. 

Lowmans still live in the Brooksville/Istachatta area. George traveled from SC with his Uncle Simeon Lowman and his cousin Joel Leslie Lowman. Simeon settled in Alachua Co., and Joel Leslie in Raleigh, Levy Co., FL., where the original Lowman farm is still owned and operated by Lowmans.






Jacob Miley Family

Provided by Bill Marshall

Jacob Miley born 1822 in Barnwell South Carolina came to Hernando county Florida circa 1861. Jacobs spouse was Jane Moody born 1834 Barnwell South Carolina. Jacob Miley and wife Jane left South Carolina in the latter 1850's. 

They then show up on the 1860 Lowndes county georgia census record along with 2 young sons. 

Jacob Miley is documented next in the 1862 Hernando county tax roll. 

Then Jacob Miley enlists Feb 25th 1863 in Captain Mcneills Company Florida Infantry in Brooksville (Confederate) 

Next he shows up again on the 1866, 1867, 1869 tax rolls. 

The 1870 Hernando County census household 426 shows Jacob Miley wife Jane and family. 

Next Jacob Miley is on the 1872,1873 tax rolls. 

The 1874 tax roll shows Jane Miley the HOH. I presume Jacob died sometime between the 1873-1874 tax data. 

They were settlers in the Istachatta area around New Hope. The rest of the family is well documented after 1870. I will be glad to share any information I may have or answer any questions.
