I'd suggest you post on the Canada/US boards here.  If someone reading this has access to US censuses, in Ravalli Co, Montana in 1900 there's a Lowney family including Cornelius, Kate, and a son Edward who was born in ND.

http://www.lib.ndsu.nodak.edu/ndirs/databases/census.php - if you search here you'll see this family were living in Jamestown in 1885, shortly before Edward's birth.

Do you know where (in the US? Canada?) the various children were born? You're going to run into difficulties because of privacy records.  Generally birth records within the past 100 years are difficult to get hold of.

I'd suggest getting the death certificate of Julia Anna Lowney who d. 1956 in Vancouver; BC death certificates include fields on the number of years resident in the area.  Edward James Lowney does not appear on the death index but if you search on the BC archives site under 'textual' records you'll see his 1947 probate record.  This would indicate to me that he may have died away from BC but his family were settled there at the time - hence the filing of probate in BC.

Warm Regards,
