    • At the outbreak of the Civil War William Lowe enlisted in the Upshur Battery (First West Virginia Light Artillery). He was captured August 30, 1862,  by the confederate General A.G. Jenkins' forces, while defending military stores at Buckhannon. He was taken to Libby Prison in Richmond, Virginia. His stepmother wrote a letter to Robert E. Lee, explaining that William's mother, who was deceased, was Robert E. Lee's niece and demand his immediate release, and it was granted. It's believed that Robert E. Lee was her Uncle but this information hasn't been verified.
