From The Charlottetown Morning Guardian, July 18, 1902:
"The death occurred in the city yesterday morning, of Eliza Sentner, aged 93 years, widow of the late William Lowe, who died in 1886, in the 87th year of his age. Deceased, who was born in Charlottetown, was the daughter of the late Caleb Sentner, a United Empire Loyalist and the first jailor in Queen's County. He died at the age of 110. Despite her advanced years the deceased had enjoyed good health until within three months ago, when she became ill with stomach trouble. Thanks to a strong constitution she rallied and had apparently recovered when a fortnight ago there set in a relapse which proved fatal. She leaves to mourn two sons, Henry and Samuel, of the firm of Lowe Bros., and thirteen grandchildren. The funeral takes place on Sunday at 3 p.m. to the People's Cemetery. The deceased will be interred in the burial clothes made in 1839. In those years it was the custom to have such clothing made and laid away until the time came for their use.
Such examples of longevity, the father living to the age of 110 and the daughter to the age of 93, are rare, even in Prince Edward Island. Mrs. Lowe's sister, Mrs. Mabey lived to see her one hundredth year. A brother is still living in good health at the age of 80 years."

Death notice in the Charlottetown Daily Examiner, September 15, 1887: "Editorial Notes.
By the death of Mr. William Lowe, Charlottetown has lost one of its old landmarks, one who has left many landmarks behind, him in the shape of well-built houses. Mr. Lowe was at one time the first house carpenter of the town, and was employed in the erection of many of the finest buildings. In recent years he has devoted his attention to the care of one of the largest and finest gardens in the Province. A good citizen has passed away.
