Joseph Macauley Lowe

Joseph Macauley Lowe was born in Pendleton County, Kentucky, December 13, 1844, both father and mother before him having been born in Kentucky.  His common school education was interrupted by the call to arms, and he enlisted in the Confederate army.

     As a teacher in the school at Greenfield, Ind., he advanced his own education and read law during every leisure moment, finally gaining admission to the bar in 1865.  In 1868 he moved to Plattsburg, Mo., where he practiced his profession until 1883, winning so high a place in the esteem of the community that he was elected four times to the office of Prosecuting Attorney of Clinton county.  In 1883 he came to Kansas City, where he was ever since lived.  In 1889 Judge Lowe was appointed receiver of the National Exchange Bank, and paid depositors in full and stockholders a handsome dividend.  He has not been engaged in active practice of his profession for some years, devoting most of his time to the management of his own affairs.  He is a staunch, but progressive, Democrat, and a remarkably strong speaker and vigorous writer, his addresses and articles having won him wide recognition for ability.

     He was married in 1876 to Miss Mary E. McWilliams, of Madison County, Kentucky, and they have two children, John Roger and Florence Marion, the latter now Mrs. Hughes Bryant.
