    Notes 
    • 1289211HISTORY OF THE LOW/LOWE FAMILY I found the spelling of this family name changed from Low to Lowe. The beginning of this family in America is uncertain. William Lowe is our first known ancestor. Our records of William begin in Bedford County, Virginia. He moved most of his family to Wilkes County, North Carolina in the late 1700`s. His grandson Stephen came to Surry County, North Carolina and it is from his family that we descend. Low Gap, North Carolina was named for Stephen and his descendants who populated this area for many years and there are still members of the Low family living in Low Gap today Will of William Low Deceased June ____ 1780
