The Elliott and Lowther families are joined in several marriages at this time. Jacob married Barbara Susana Lowther, daughter of Jesse Coburn Lowther and Phebe Cunningham. Another Lowther daughter, Lydia, married Jacob’s brother, John.
In addition, a sister of John and Jacob — Elizabeth — married a Lowther, according to Maxine (Elliott) Mottice. Although the links are not definite, her husband appears to be John G. J. Lowther, a son of Jesse and Phebe Lowther.
