Story from Jean Lowe family history book:

"Horace Haszard Lowe was described by his father as being "the best boy on earth", in a letter to Lizzie Stramberg dated 19 Jan 1896. Samuel continued to marvel at what a good boy Horrie was. Horrie read his bible every night of his life (1896) and said his prayers faithfully. Horrie got a job with the Union Bank in Charlottetown and worked conscientiously and saved his money. By the time he was 15 he had already saved enough money to purchase a horse and buggy. Horrie played the violin and was very diligent in his practise. He also marched with the "Boy's Brigade".

In 1902, Horrie, impressed with the adventures of his uncles, Charles and Philip (Stramberg), and his brother Will, wrote to Will suggesting that he (Horrie) should come out west. Will, however, encouraged Horrie to stay with his bank job, advising that the west would have no greater opportunities for him.

Ethel told of one reunion that the three Lowe brothers, Will, Horrie, and Sam, had while they lived in Athabasca Landing."
