From Patricia Johnson, Louisiana, USA

I am descended from Samuel Pleasant Lownds/Lowndes/Lownes born 13 July 1816 supposedly in Virginia, possibly Red Bank.
He married on 29 Sept 1844 to a Julia C. born in Alabama.  Samuel died 7 January 1903 in Village Springs, Alabama, a town which no longer is on the map.
In one census record he is listed as a buggy maker.  They had at least one child, Mary Emma Lownes born 12 Oct 1845 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.  She first married William Henry Sanborn and they were supposedly divorced.  He died as the result of a shooting accident so he might have died instead of their being divorced.
Mary Emma did marry a second time to a David Arrowsmith and was living in New York City in 1880 census.  She died 28 Aug 1928.
My ancestor is a daughter of Mary Emma and William Sanborn.
In the (USA) Lowndes family history, I found mention of a Samuel Pleasants Lowndes, the son of Caleb and Jane (Steel), who was the son of James & Sarah (Pancoast) Lowndes.
Patricia would appreciate any light anyone could shed on this family and if her Samuel is the same Samuel as in the USA Lowndes narrative – Mike

    I am not the Patricia Johnson you are seeking, however, it is a common name with two others living in my immediate area and another seven within 20 miles. I wish you luck. Sorry I can’t help you.

    James Lownes (1740-1831) married Sarah Pancoast 3 Nov 1763 in Burlington NJ – they had 10 children. Those of interest here are:
    1. Caleb b. 17 Aug 1778 in Philadelphia PA who Jane Steele
    2. Deborah Whitehead Lownes (b. 1774) who married Samuel Pleasants (July 1795) in Richmond VA.

    The Lownes family Bible records are available on-line at the Library of Virginia website
    (search catalogs for Lownes Bible)
