    I'll map everybody in relation to the remains later tonight, but if somebody gets to it sooner, feel free.

    P. S. Are the two Lowerys related?

    I don't know if the Lowery's are related. There is not much info on their threads. Nothing to indicate they are related but they could be. It could also be one of the really common surnames in the area. There is a large Native American population in Lumberton and both the missing Lowery's are Native American.

    ETA: A bit of history on Lumbee surnames here: Lumbee - Wikipedia
    (Under the heading "American Revolution and federal era")

    Re Abby - It's about 7--8 miles from downtown Lumberton to Powersville Road.

    The names Lowery and Lowry are fairly common Lumbee names in Robeson County, NC.

    ETA -- Oops, I forgot Lowrie, but you don't see that name very much these days -- it's (obviously) an earlier form of Lowry/Lowery.

    With the remains being found on the tracks it seems likely this was someone hit by a train and dragged or someone who jumped on a train to hitch a ride and fell off like Varcy Locklear: Skull found in Robeson County is that of man killed by train

    JMO.

    Yeah, totally agree. Though looking at the terrain in Googlemaps, it's very close to the road, too, so being at the tracks might be coincidence.

    Investigation underway after more skeletal remains found in Robeson County

    "At the end of 2018, deputies identified a skull that was also found near train tracks in Robeson County.

    Deputies have also been working clues to solve the highly publicized deaths of three women in 2017.

    Those cases still haven't been solved and are the subject of "32 Degrees," a podcast by CBS 17's Russ Bowen.

    The 2017 disappearance of Abby Patterson and the 2015 disappearance of Nicole Graham in 2015 have also not been solved."

    Gardnener, didn't we just leave a month long discussion in Robeson County not that long ago.. What a sad place. I remember after/during Hania's disappearance, the FBI wasn't able to leave because of all the Unidentified bodies that turned up while they were there...

    Yes, I made most of the above MP threads after Hania's case. IMO the missing and murdered rate is high in Lumberton for a population of only about 21,000 people. Sadly I'm guessing there are many more missing that have not been reported. MOO.

    Here's the thread for the 3 unsolved murdered women: Found Deceased - NC - Megan Oxendine, 28, Christina Bennett, 32, and Rhonda Jones, 36, Lumberton, Apr/Jun 2017
    (I believe they were murdered even though there is no official cause of death for any of them. MOO.)
