Spelling of Lowke

Has anyone heard of Lowke being spelled Lowks? I have never seen Lowks spelled this way anywhere. For the past 100 yrs. or so the family has spelled it Lowks. I figure somewhere back there someone couldn't read or write and spelled it as it sounded.

Is it possible that Lowks, as it appears in the Ulster County, NY, census of 1790, might be an variant of the name LOTT?????
