From there they ascended the Mississippi River to Madison, Indiana, thence to Indianapolis, where [John] worked in a woolen factory for $8 per month and boarded himself. [They] remained in Indianapolis and vicinity about five years, when [they] came to Illinois. They rented a farm in Virden, on which they lived about two years. [John] then came to this county, bringing with him his mother, brothers and sisters."

This census indicates the family was near Virden in 1860, although the girls names don't match other records very well. In this census record, the family lives near several other Lowery/Lowry families, so they may have travelled together to Macoupin Co, IL.
