From your draft response:

<< Since this request was obviously misunderstood, my name legally changed due to marriage on December 8, 2001, and I have enclosed a copy of both my updated Social Security card and marriage license to avoid any further confusion. >>

NEVER give people more information than they really need. Particularly when that info is SS cards or other official doc's (or copies thereof). You may have a specific purpose when you mail in this manner of doc's, but you have ZERO control over what actually becomes of any copies you send in.
A copy of your SS card and marriage license DEFINITELY is way too much info. I can't think on anyone I'm not employed by who needs to see my SS card and still fewer who need to see my marriage license. Just attach a copy of your letter and Lowe's reply and sign a third letter with your maiden name that explains the situation.
On another note, the guy who replied to your letter is obviously kind of A/R, but hey, that's exactly the guy you WANT managing your accounts. I'd be more inclined to write him a thank you card for being being on watch over your account. I'd maybe even sign it using my "strapping young lad" name, as per Lowe's request, and my married name.
