PIONEER LOW FAMILY


 
1.  PETER G. LOW (son of GIDEON C. LOW & RACHEL SAMMONS) was
born 1750 in Kingston, NY.  The original spelling of this family name was Louw.
Some where along the line it got Americanized to Low and in my family tree it
was changed to Lowe.  He served in 1782 as a patriot (Revolutionary soldier) of
Ulster County.  He settled in Jefferson County in 1826  with his son Gideon and
is buried in Depauville.
