      A wedding announcement in the [Upper Sandusky, OH] Daily Chief (15 Sep 1917), states:
      "MARRIED AT MONROE
      "The Fostoria Times says ... : At Monroe, Mich., last Saturday [8 Sep], Miss Irene Snouffer and Mr. Cletus Lowery, both of Fostoria, were united in marriage by Rev. Lendrum, of that city.... Mr. Lowery is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Lowery, of Cherry street and is an employee of the city...."
      http://ftp/rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/oh/wyandot/newspaper/wco-pt2.txt (accessed Mar 2006).

      The 1930 census shows "Cletis" Lowery, a 37 year old electrician, living with his wife "Iream," 31, and children: "Hubert," 12; "Marjorie J," 9; "Dortha J," 7; "Harry E," 4; "May A," 3; and "Edna V," 9 months. 1930 U.S. Census, Washington Twsp, Arcadia Village, Hancock Cnty, OH (T 626, Roll 1820, stamped p. 252B).
    • Obituary, Fostoria [OH] Review Times (30 Sept 1948):
      "Cletus Edwin Lowery, 50, 734 MacDougal street, died in Fostoria City hospital Wednesday [29 Sep] 3:28 p.m., a half hour after he was admitted to the hospital suffering with a heart attack.
      "Mr. Lowery was born in Henry county, O., October 8, 1897 to Edwin and Mary (Poley) Lowery, and was married to Susan Irene Snouffer in Monroe, Mich., Sept. 8, 1917.
      "Surviving are his wife; six daughters, Mrs. Elwood Jones, Bairdstown; Mrs. Robert Rohm, Cleveland; Mrs. Carl Prenzlin, Fostoria; May, Marilyn and Sandra Lowery, at home; three sons, Herbert, Charles and James Lowery, Fostoria; two sisters, Mrs. C.R.

      "Funeral services will be held ... Saturday [2 Oct], 2 p.m.... Burial will be in Fountain cemetery...."

      Although the obituary states he was born in 1897, his draft records and tombstone confirm he was actually born 8 Oct 1896.
