John Lowry Burial Site at Lodi Cemetery

At a crossroads called Nutting's Corner, Lodi Cemetery is the final resting place of Captain John Lowry and his wife, Sylvia.  Captain John Lowry's famous safe house, a quater-mile northwest of Lodi Cemetery, burned down in the 1900s and a subdivision masks the significance of the historic site.  Captain Lowry publicly declared his hatred of slavery and promoted his farm as a place of safety.  Lowry participated in a network helping people escape to Canada.
