Lowry Humphreys1 (F)
b. 2 June 1816, d. 13 March 1896
Pop-up Pedigree

     Hard times seems to have continued with Lowry Humphreys in her youth. Her mother, Lowry Hill Humphreys, died one month after birthing the younger Lowry. The younger Lowry and siblings were then taken care of by her grandmother, Rebecca Hunt Humphrey. Then her father, William Humphreys, died when she was only 12. Even more so, William died in, and was probably buried in, New Albany, Indiana, probably away from his presumed home in Penna. Higgins/Streets Notes: At death of mother, month-old Lowry was taken charge of by Bunting relatives. Look at letter that we have where this lady was also raised by Bunting relatives. Lowry was born at Darby, Delaware Co., Pennsylvania, on 2 June 1816. She was the daughter of William Humphreys and Lowry Hill. She married Beezon Baynes at Pennsylvania on 4 March 1840. Lowry died on 13 March 1896 at Washington Twp., Washington Co., Indiana, at age 79. Her body was interred in March 1896 at Washington Twp., Washington Co., Indiana, at Highland Meeting Cemetery. Lowry's tombstone reads:

"Lowry H. Wife of Beezon Baynes Born 6th Mo. 2 D 1816 Died 3rd Mo. 13 D 1896 Aged 80 Yrs"

Lettering is hard to read due to lichen. Stone measures 3" thick, 11" wide, 15" high. Stone located two stones west of son Wm. H. Baynes and right beside the stone of her husband.. She was New Tag Salem, Indiana Newspaper "In Memoriam Lowry H. Baynes departed this life on the 13th day of March, 1896, at her home, 2 miles west of Salem, after a brief illness of two weeks, in her 80th year. She was the daughter of William and Lowry Humphreys, and was born June 3rd, 1815, at Darby, Pennsylvania. She was married to Beezon Baynes on March 4th, 1840, and has thus, on the 4th inst. passed the 56 anniversary of her marriage, which, although quite ill at the time, she referred to with evident pleasure as one of the bright spots in her life, as they had been, through that long period, a loving and devoted couple. They moved from Pennsylvania to Indiana in the fall of 1855 and settled on the farm where they lave since resided and where she closed her days. There were born to them ten children, all of whom are living, who, with nine sons and daughters by marriage and 34 grand-children constituted their large family, and she very oftern expressed her gratitude for the comfort and happiness it gave her in her declining years, to have them so near, as some of them would almost daily drop in to inquire after her welfare. Her last illness was the result of a severe cold which terminated in pneumonia, complicated with heart trouble, and seemed from the first to have a presentiment that she would not recover. Though at times her suffering was intense, yet she boree it with patience, evincing through it all a loving and thankful spirit that was truly a pleasure to witness. Her mental vision remained unclouded to the last and she often earnestly asked to be released from her bonds of suffering to enjoy the peace and happiness that seemed so bright before her. The evening before her final demise she called her family and attendants together in a meetin in which her voice, though broken and almost inaudible, was raised in prayer in which no murmur was heard at life of its ills but only gratitude and thankfulness for the many blessings she had enjoyed. All that medical skill or loving service could render were done to relieve her, but to no avail, and she passed quietly and peacefully to the rest and reward that await the pure and faithful in that higher life. She was a loving, faithful and devoted wife, mother and friend, as innocent as a child, with a forgiving spirit that shed light and sunshine wherever she moved. She was a consistent member of the Society of Friends and lived a true and exemplary life, beloved by all who knew her. Her children feel that they have been blessed in loving her for a mother and will cherish her memory as a priceless treasure. Her funeral took place from Friends meeting house at Highland creek which was largely attended and was a solemn and impressive occasion.

In March 1896 at Salem, Washington Co., Indiana.
