Mary Lowe1

b. 18 February 1769, d. 9 July 1847
Birth*18 February 1769Mary Lowe was born on 18 February 1769 in St. George, Hanover Square, London, Mayfair, Middlesex County, England.1
Occupation*She was an actress and singer.1
Marriage*11 July 1801She married Francis Fowke on 11 July 1801 in Gretna Green, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.1
(Heir) Will7 July 1813She was named as a beneficiary in the will of Francis Fowke dated 7 July 1813. The list of heirs mentioned in the will included Mary (Lowe) Fowke, Mary Fowke, Captain John Fowke, Richard Fowke, Edward Fowke, Elisabeth Fowke, Robert Fowke, Philip Fowke, Charles Fowke, Dr. Frederick Fowke, Henrietta Fowke and Eliza Fowke.1
Marriage19 July 1813Mary (Lowe) Fowke and Francis Fowke married again for the second, or possibly even the third, time on 19 July 1813 in Saint Olave, London, Southwark, Surrey County, England. The birth of the first child attributed to them both was as early as 1789, so they may have married before 1801. They appear by the consistent dates of their children's births to have been together between their 1801 and 1813 marriage ceremonies, and the reason they married again is unclear. Possibilities being explored include the laws of inheritance and the differences between the marriage laws of England and Scotland at the time.1
Census Wales 1841*Mary Fowke appeared on the 1841 census on St. Mary's Street, St. Mary Within, Tenby, Pembrokeshire, Wales. Her age was 70, and her occupation "Independent Means". Living with her was daughter Henrietta, of Independent Means, age 40, son Philip, Independent Means, age 35, Charles age 15, probably a grandson, and two household servants.

Name-SpellingsAnother spelling of the LUCE surname found in our research was LUSE.3
Birth*1762Samuel Luce was born in 1762 in New Jersey.2
Relationship Note*Samuel and Zephaniah Luce were brothers.4
(2nd Husband) Relocation1785Samuel probably left Virginia with his brother Zephaniah and the family of his Zephaniah's wife's parents, Hannah and Isaac Heaton, in 1785, and moved west to Pennsylvania where two of the Heaton brothers, John and Henry, had already settled. The group established their new home in that part of Washington County, Pennsylvania, which would become Greene County in 1796.4
Marriage*He married his brother Zephaniah's widow, Mary (Heaton) Luce, daughter of Isaac Heaton and Hannah Bowen, probably in Washington County, Pennsylvania.1
(2nd Husband) Research NotesBecause Samuel married his deceased brother Zephaniah's wife, all of Mary (Heaton) Luce's eight children have the same surname, and not many of their birth dates have been identified. The dates of the marriages are not yet known, and neither is the date of Zephaniah's death. Tenmile Country listed all of the children as Samuel's, however the Heaton sources indicate some of the children were from Mary's first marriage. We don't know for sure which husband fathered each child, and have simply "assigned" the children to either Samuel or Zephaniah in what we believe to be a thoughtful, albeit uncertain, manner. We look forward to correcting our errors as we learn more information.1,5,2
