Major George Lowry

The service of Major George Lowry, a Cherokee, from this source:

The title of Major was not merely an honorary one, but one gained by faithful military service under Gen. Jackson, during the war of 1812.  At that time he lived north of the Tennessee, on Battle Creek, or Niccojack Cove.

When he and his brother, Col. John Lowry, together with all the Cherokees living in that neighborhood, were compelled by the intolerance of the white settlers, to remove from that locality, they settled near the northern end of Will's Valley, about fifty miles south west of Chattanooga.


There is a portrait of George Lowry here.
