Lowdon, Ann (1876-1845)

Transcription of obituary published in the Primitive Methodist Magazine by John Watson

ANN LOWDON, of Brough, in the Barnard Castle circuit, was considered strictly moral previous to her conversion, but she was not awakened to a sense of her unrenewed state till the year 1825. By the Primitive Methodists she was brought to Christ, and taught to believe in Him for the remission of her sins. After having received the evidence of her spiritual change she became one of their members; and her subsequent conduct was truly Christian. She “followed peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord!” In her affliction, she experienced much of the Divine presence, and gave many proofs that “Christ was in her the hope of glory;” and on June 1st, 1845, she entered into rest, aged eighty-one years.

Census Returns and Births, Marriages & Deaths Registers

Note: The only online records I have identified are for a Nancy Lowdon who appears in the 1841 census return and dies in Q2, 1845 at Brough. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
