Updated by Bruce Sheridan Lowing
Chapter 8: Mary Jeanette (Lowing Bosworth)
MARY JEANNETTE (LOWING) BOSWORTH (43), the sixth child and first daughter of Isaac and Lavina Lowing, was born June 5, 1825, at Bethany, N.Y. She attended school, and her mother gave her training to meet the rugged life of pioneer women, carding, spinning, weaving, sewing, candle making, quilting, soap from lye and ashes.
She belonged to the Baptist Church in Bethany. She was eighteen when the family made the boat trip to Michigan, and was always proud of the fact, that in spite of the storms, she was not seasick. The family told how they padded the head and foot of their bunks to keep from becoming battered as their small ship plunged in the waves of the storms.
Her brother, Holden had written her glowing accounts of Michigan, that their new cabin was right on the State Road, but she found only a fallen tree at the edge of their clearing in the wilderness to indicate the future site of the road, and their lovely home in Michigan was but a 10 x 14 log cabin, with a loft, reached by a ladder.
Mr. E. Franklin Bosworth (82) had arrived in Michigan in 1842, and had taken up his land near the Lowings. As a boy he had been apprenticed to a Mr. Page of Bethany, N.Y, where he had received an education both in the common schools and at Bethany Academy. When Franklin was 21, he was offered his choice of one hundred dollars or 80 acres of land that Page had prospected in Michigan. He chose the land. He lived in the cabin with Isaac and his sons Holden and Isaac, while lie built his cabin on his nearby land. The rest of the family arrived October 18, 1843.
Mary J. Lowing married E. Franklin Bosworth, September 25, 1846, and moved the short distance to her new home. They had many of the early hard times, but both being good managers, they were able to build one of the first frame houses in the vicinity, and she had the first carpets on the floor.
Mary became the mid-wife of the community, and assisted at the birth of 89 babies in her lifetime, as well as being nurse for many other types of sickness. She was usually called before the doctor, and many said her entrance into the sickroom was better cure than the medicine. In spite of her large family and their needs, she welcomed many other needy people into her home.
They had 11 children, and strived to give each one of them an education, and 6 of them taught school. Franklin was continually called upon for advice in deeds, land boundaries, while during the Civil War, he acted as agent for many of the soldiers, guarding their property and paying their taxes.
