    Notes 
    • [NOTE: Great care must be taken to make sure that correct records are being used. There is also a Hiram M. Lowell, with very similar birth date, who was from Greenbush, ME, whose father is Eben Lowell. Numerous records have been found that have confused these two individuals.]

      This quote appears in “Historic Genealogy of the Lowells” but is incorrect, referring to a Hiram M. Lowell who lived in Greenbush: "He was a soldier in the Civil War, 31 years of age, 14th Maine Inft., Co. "F", from Greenbush, Me.; corporal."

      Early Chesterville Families from the earliest book of Chesterville Vital Records lists:
      “Hiram Lowell, b. 6-4-1830
      h.w. Louisa M. Harwood
      Ch: Catherine E. b. 8-13-1861
      Hiram E. b. 11-22-1866
      Hiram Lowell d. 1-8-1867 (did not state which Hiram Lowell, later documents prove that this was the death date for the father)”

      1850 Census: Massachusetts: Middlesex: Reading:
      J. D. Burtt, 27, married, cabinet-maker, born in Massachusetts;

      Hiram Lowell, 20, cabinet-maker, born in Maine.

      Chesterville Records book of several different manuscripts held by the Maine Historical Society indicates that under the heading “Samuel and Hannah Lowell” Hiram Lowell died in Winthrop Jan. 8, 1867.”
