Lowe, David P., jurist and member of Congress, was born in Oneida county, N. Y., Aug. 22, 1823. His early education was such as most boys received in that early day, but he decided upon a professional career and graduated at the Cincinnati Law College in 1851. Immediately after his admission to the bar he began to practice in Cincinnati, Ohio, but ten years later determined to try his fortune in the west and removed to Kansas. He soon became actively interested in local and state politics, and was nominated attorney-general by the convention held at Lawrence on Sept. 29, 1862, but declined the nomination. In November of that year Mr. Lowe was elected state senator from the 13th district, in which capacity he served until 1864, when he succeeded Hon. Solon O. Thacher as judge of the 4th judicial district. On March 4, 1867, he was appointed judge of the 6th judicial district, and continued to hold that office until after his election to Congress on Nov. 8, 1870, as a Republican. He was renominated as a candidate for Congress Sept. 1, 1872, and again elected on Nov. 5 of that year. After serving his last term in Congress he was appointed chief justice of the supreme court of Utah Territory. Subsequently he returned to Fort Scott, and in 1880 succeeded W. C. Stewart as judge of his old district, the 6th, remaining in that office until his death on April 20, 1882.
