George LOWELL

George is my seventh great granduncle; we are related through his parents Joseph and Mary (HARDY) LOWELL.  He was an inn-holder in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[1]

George LOWELL was born 28 March 1712 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[2]  There are various publications that state other dates such as 23 March 1712 and 2 January 1715, but I believe these to be untrue as I can find no official documents stating these dates.[3]  He died before 26 April 1763 in Newbury, Essex Massachusetts or Saco, York, Maine.[4]George married Elizabeth MORSS 29 June 1732, with intentions filed 22 April 1732.[5]  Elizabeth was born 2 April 1714 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[6]  She was the daughter of Samuel and Elizabeth (MARCH) MORSE.  She married second to Joseph PARKER 9 August 1762 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[7]

George and Elizabeth had the following children:

  1. George LOWELL born 12 June 1734 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[8]
  2. Daughter LOWELL born January 1736 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[9]
  3. Samuel LOWELL born 17 February 1738 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[10] He died 23 February 1784 in Saco, York, Maine.[11]  Samuel married twice; first to Susan Ellen/Eleonore PHILBROOK about 1763 in Greenland, Rockingham, New Hampshire.[12]  He married second Charity BERRY 16 May 1771 in Saco, York, Maine with intentions filed 13 April 1771 in Saco, York, Maine.[13]  Samuel served in the Revolutionary War in Capt. John Elder’s Co., Col. Lemuel Robinson’s Regt.[14]
  4. Elizabeth LOWELL born 21 June 1741 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[15] She died 19 September 1772 in Newbury, Orange, Vermont.[16]  She is interred at Oxbow Cemetery in Newbury, Orange, Vermont.[17]  Elizabeth married Col. Thomas JOHNSON 12 February in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts or Newbury, Orange, Massachusetts; there are records stating both locations.[18]  Thomas was in command of a unit at the Battle of Ticonderoga in the Revolutionary War, he was also captured and taken to Canada and later released.[19]
  5. Sarah LOWELL born 4 April 1745 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[20]

Sarah J. LIBBY

Sarah is my fifth cousin three times removed.  I found a lot written about the family, many memories from her youngest daughter and records galore.  I did find that there was disparages when it came to birth dates for her, her husband and children, I will be using the date that is most widely recorded in records.  Sarah’s family moved many times, I will be only recording the locations of censuses, knowing that within the county of the census the family moved a few times.  If I have dates of a family move I’ll note it.  Sarah was enumerated with her parents and siblings in 1850 taken in Lagrange, Penobscot, Maine.[1]  Sarah and her husband were enumerated with their son George (the only record or his existence outside of a remembrance of a sibling) in 1860 taken in Aroostook County, Maine.[2]  In the 1870 census, the family had a few more children and was living in Lagrange, Penobscot, Maine.[3]  In the 1880 census the family was enumerated in Medford, Piscataquis, Maine.[4]  In the 1895 Minnesota State census the family was enumerated in Minneapolis, Hennepin, Minnesota, living at 2951 James Avenue.[5]  In the 1900 through 1920 census she and her husband were enumerated with one or more children with them or they living with them, taken in Baker, Fallon, Montana.[6]  I cannot find Sarah in the 1930 census, though she was living, presumably with daughter Martha.

Sarah J. LIBBY was born 12 March 1841 in Lagrange, Penobscot, Maine.[7]  She was the daughter of Aaron and Ruth (HAZELTINE) LIBBY.  Sarah died 1 April 1924 in Baker, Fallon, Montana.[8]  She was interred at Bonnievale Cemetery in Baker, Fallon, Montana.  Sarah married Daniel Clark W. HASTY 18 July 1859 in Lagrange, Penobscot, Maine.[9]  Daniel was born 16 March 1834 in Medford, Piscataquis, Maine or Scarborough, Cumberland, Maine.[10]  He was the son of Daniel Clark and Sarah D. (SMITH) HASTY.  He served in the Civil War from 3 December 1861 to 24 April 1862 as a private in Co. E, 15th Maine Infantry, he was discharged before the unit engaged in any action due to disability.[11]  He was a farmer or laborer throughout his life.  He died 21 March 1922 in Fallon County, Montana.[12]  He is interred at Bonnievale Cemetery in Baker, Fallon, Montana.[13]

Sarah and Daniel had many children they are as follows:

  1. George A. HASTY was born 21 April 1860 in Portage Lake, Aroostook, Maine.[14] He died 22 July 1860 in Portage Lake, Aroostook, Maine.[15]
  2.
