Was Henry Berry Lowrie a turpentiner?

Record Number: 

Maynor, Malinda. “Was Henry Berry Lowrie a turpentiner?” Carolina Indian Voice 6 December 2001: 2.


Maynor has discovered, while doing research on Lumbee people who worked in turpentine in Robeson County and Adabelle, Georgia, that during Henry Berry Lowry's time, Robeson County was replete with longleaf pines that were tapped for turpentine. She visited the property of Jason B. Lowry in Hopewell--land that had been in the Lowry family since before the time of Henry Berry Lowry. She saw huge pine tress that had been scraped and slashed on one side, probably by Henry Berry Lowry and his brothers.
