There were two main factions of this family; there was one on the coast and one in Buckfield, Me. The Buckfield Lowells I can trace through books (which I have) and they left there went to Litchfield and two of the brothers married into the Smith family and moved to Lee, ME. I am seeking additional information on how and when Thomas Lowell left MA and came to Portland, ME. I would also like documentation on marriages between Lowell, Thomas and Smith, Rachel. Any information would be great.

Hi, Don't know if you have solved this problem, but do know there are still Lowells in Buckfield. Think they have a lumber company there. The Town Office could help you, I'm sure. Also, you might check Mass. Vital Records for Thomas Lowell and Rachel Smith -- they may have married before moving to Portland.
Lowell Family also from North Penobscot, Maine, Hancock County. Elmer&Elma, Husband and wife still living in old homestead. Research family genealogy at www.penobscot-maine/genelogy and also look around the site for family surnames, Lowell.
There were Lowell who moved to Princeton, MN. Fred Lowell was born in Whitneyville, ME/ area. Maybe related? During the era of the Homestead Act, after the "War of the Rebellion", as my family called it......Fred Lowell moved to MN about 1870.

I am descended from the Litchfield bunch, but I've found records for a whole lot of places in Oxford County with other family members. I'd be interested in anything you turn up.

I THINK you can find some useful information in the "History of Litchfield, Maine", published in 1885.  It has a section on the Lowell family beginning on page 208.  A direct link to that page is Lowell Family.
