Duane My great grandmother was Charlotte Marie Hertell-Gardner
from Green Turtle Cay in the bahamas. According to my mother she is somehow
related to the GTC Lowes they also migrated to key west.I know that one of relatives is a man named Albert Lowe
from Green Turtle Cay,and there is an Albert Lowe Museum there. not sure but I think he was a
seaman. If I find out anything else I'll let you know please
e-mail me if you run into the Hertell's in your line!Thanks Beckey Abbott

Hello "cousins"....I am trying to trace Gideon Lowe b.1718. He
landed on Abaco Island (BWI) and had many siblings/family.
He is my g.g.g.g....grandfather. I would love to trace him back
to ...where? Many reports say the southern states, some England and Scotland. I would love to work with anyone who can give some clues as to his origin. Listed as marrying a Martha or Mary. Lots of info. on Bahamas DNA Project site but no one
has gone as far as Gideon.
Many thanks.

Hello Estelle,

The Lowe participant in the Bahamas DNA Project does trace his ancestry to all the way back to Gideon LOWE (b. bef abt 1720 married Martha or Mary, father of Capt Gideon Lowe b. abt 1755). The Y chromosome results strongly indicate that this direct paternal line is of Portuguese origin. This Y chromosome result is not close to anyone of English or Scottish origin on their direct paternal line. It also does not match at least 4 other Low/e lines in the U.S. listed in the Low/e Surname DNA Project. Some of the Lowe family in Bermuda have an oral history of being of Portuguese origin. We still need to test a descendant of another son of Capt Gideon Lowe to help confrim this genealogy and the haplotype of Gideon. Testing one of the Bermuda Lowes would also be very helpful.

Let me know if you are willing to help. Thank you and sincerely, Peter

I am descended from a Gideon Lowe that came from the Bahamas and had descendents in Key West. I don't have any dates, but he goes back 7 generations from me(I am 42). His wife was Nancy Saunders. Son: John Lowe(m. Mary Ann Curry). son: Joseph Lowe (m. Christiana Curry). son: Thomas Jonathan Jackson Lowe(b. 1865-KW; m. Gertrude Ophelia Gould).
This is the first I've heard of a Portugese connection. I would love to help anyway I can.
