Lydia LOWELL

Lydia Lowell is my first cousin, six time removed.  We are related through her grandfather, my sixth great grandfather Archibald HANEY.  Only one of Lydia and Samuel’s children lived past one year.  Lydia is enumerated in the 1850 census with her son Samuel’s family in Blue Hill, Hancock, ME[1].  Not sure where Lydia and son Samuel lived prior to the 1850 census, but according to one book the son Samuel was raised by his grandfather Jedidiah, therefore I believe that Lydia and Samuel lived with Jedidiah in Blue Hill, due to the difficulty determining the people living in the home prior to the 1850 census I cannot be sure.

Lydia LOWELL was born 2 February 1789 in Penobscot, Hancock, ME to parents Eliphalet and Elizabeth (HANEY) LOWELL[2].  She died 7 May 1857.  She is interred at Old Cemetery in Blue Hill, Hancock, ME.[3]  Lydia married Samuel Phelps HOLT 4 April 1813 in Penobscot, Hancock, ME.[4]   Samuel was born 8 July 1785 in Blue Hill, Hancock, ME to Jedidiah and Sarah (THORNDIKE) HOLT.[5]   Samuel died 29 September 1827 in Blue Hill, Hancock, ME, he as interred at Old Cemetery in Blue Hill, Hancock, ME.[6]

Lydia and Samuel had the following children:

  1. Samuel P. Holt, Jr. born 12 March 1818 in Blue Hill, Hancock, ME.[7] He died at age 1 month 12 April 1818.[8]  Samuel is interred at Old Cemetery, Blue Hill, Hancock, ME.[9]
  2. Samuel P. Holt, Jr. born 13 September 1820 in Blue Hill, Hancock, ME[10]. He died in 16 October 1889 in Staten Island, Richmond, NY.[11]  Samuel was interred at Sailors Snug Harbor Cemetery in Staten Island, Richmond, NY.[12]  He married Mary Jane OSGOOD 17 September 1844 in Blue Hill, Hancock, ME.[13]  Mary Jane was born 28 Jane 1820 in Blue Hill, Hancock, ME.[14]  She is the daughter of Joseph and Phebe OSGOOD.
  3. Mary Ann Malcom was born 31 May 1822 in Blue Hill, Hancock, ME.[15] Mary Ann married Reuben Newell ELLIS 18 December 1844 in Blue Hill, Hancock, ME.[16]  Reuben was born 25 August 1819 in Blue Hill, Hancock, ME.[17]  He is the son of Nathan and Dolly ELLIS.  Reuben died 17 January 1890 in Sommerville, Middlesex, MA.[18]
  4. George Stillman born 6 Jul 1827 in Maine. He died at 8 months, 8 March 1828.[19]   George is interred at Old Cemetery, Blue Hill, Hancock, ME.[20]
