Annotation: 

Two Indian friends of the author–Oxendine Lowery and Sam Locklear–told Bibson, many years ago, that Henry Berry Lowry did not die. Rather, he went to a secret hiding place, “an island in an impenetrable swamp” with a subterranean passage to another location. Lowry stayed there for a year, then moved on to South America. Includes information on mounds from “Dr. Hair, an Indian doctor” in Marlboro County. H. S. Hair is also mentioned in entry 452.
