LOWE, John Williamson, soldier, born in New Brunswick, New Jersey, 9 November, 1809; died in Nicholas county, Virginia, 10 September, 1861. He learned the printer's trade in New York city, settled in Batavia, Clermont County, Ohio, in 1S33, studied law, was admitted to the bar, and practised in Dayton, and subsequently in Xenia, Ohio. He was a captain in the 2d Ohio volunteers during the Mexican war, and in the beginning of the civil war joined the National army as captain of the first company that was raised in Greene county, and was elected colonel of the 12th Ohio infantry, which formed part of General Jacob D. Cox's brigade that operated in western Virginia, and cleared the Kanawha valley of the enemy. Colonel Lowe on 17 July, 1861, attacked the enemy's position on Scary creek, but retired when his ammunition was nearly exhausted. He took part in the occupation of Charleston, Virginia, and at Carnifex Ferry fell while leading his regiment in a charge against a strongly posted battery.
