The Lowe family emigrated from England in 1855. They sailed on the William Stetson and arrived in New York on 27 May 1855.  The ship manifest shows their surname as "Low."

They appear living in Illinois in the 1860 Census. The first documentation to place them in Utah is the birth of a child in August 1862. So they came to Utah sometime between 1860 and 1862. Further research is needed to narrow the year of their travel. In some sources their surname is spelled "Low." His death date is confirmed by his obituary and death certificate.
