Lowry, Jr., who gave the property on which the present church was erected.  He was a long time member of Timber Ridge also.  As early as 1855 there are church letters showing Charles Burr Lowry, the grand-father of  Mrs. Bessie Lowry Markham, my grandmother, transferring from Mount Hermon Baptist Church to Timber Ridge.
