Does anyone have any information on the George Marion Dallas Lowry family he was a civil war vet and i believe owned the house just off Lowery Road and the highway. I believe the house was called Oaklawn in those days and may have had a small store on the grounds. Or information on James Meridith Price family he was also a civil war vet and i believe lived at Price’s Station in the area but i am unsure where that might be……… supposedly a private Price family cemetary in the area that i am also trying to locate. Thanks Dick Davis

Price, James Meredith Born on December 22, 1844 at Valley Head. Died on December 2, 1926 at Valley Head. Father: Reuben Steele Price. Mother: Mary Standifer Price. Married Cornelia Evelyn Hamman on October 4, 1866. Children: Mary Ellen (died young), William Franklin, Benjamin Newton, James Gardner (died young), and Sue Gregory (Lowery). Price spent his entire life in DeKalb County except for his years of service during the Civil War. He enlisted in the Confederate Army on Feb 22, 1863, and served in Company F, Seventh Alabama Cavalry, commended by R.R. Davenport. He was discharged at Charlotte, North Carolina on May 4, 1865. He believed in the cause for which he had fought throughout his long life. In 1866 he married and settled on a small farm four miles south of Valley Head, along the Alabama Great Southern Railway, where he spent the rest of his life. The flag station in front of his home was called Cordell for a time, then was chaged to Price&’s Switch for as long as passenger service was continued. Price joined the Masonic Lodge at Lebanon in June 1871. He was an active member of the Methodist Episcopal Church South, which he joined in the fall of 1860 and served on the board of stewards fro 1873 until 1899. His home was a haven for many young ministers who came to serve his church. He often counseled with them when they became discouraged and persuaded them to stay in the ministry. Some who took his advice became outstanding ministers or bishops in the Methodist church. His son, William Franklin became a minister and served in the North Alabama Conference for over 50 years, including a number o years as paster and as presiding elder in this area. His other son (of the two who reached adulthood), Benjamin Newton, was a respected businessman and a beloved and influential public school and Sunday school teacher. =================================================================================== Map where cemetery is located http://geonames.usgs.gov/pls/gnis538/getgooglemap?p_lat=34.5286964&p_longi=-85.6474659&fid=150469 ==================================================================================== Price Cemetery Surveyed 14 Jan 2004 by VB
