Edward L. Rowell[1], born in Montville, Maine, was the seventh child of Daniel Merrill Rowell[2] and Hannah C. Vose[3], who were married in Montville on September 13, 1835.


Daniel and Hannah Rowell had 10 children born in Montville: George Wilson Rowell[4] (Chapter 3), Ebenezer E. Rowell [5], Jonathan Alpheus Rowell [6], Ezekiel Prescott Rowell [7], Hellen Maria Rowell [8] (Chapter 5), Sarah Frances Rowell [9], Edward L. Rowell , Alfred Harry Rowell[10], Adolphus Merrill Rowell [11] and Luella Caroline Rowell[12].


Edward L. Rowell was a direct descendant of John Alden[13] and Priscilla Mullens[14], who arrived in 1620, on the Mayflower.


In 1850, in Montville, Edward L. Rowell, is mistakenly enumerated as being 6 months old, during the Census and the youngest child was not even recorded. Edward is 2 years old and his little brother, Alfred Harry Rowell[15], the eighth child of Daniel M. and Hannah C. Rowell, was actually the 6-month-old child. Alfred Harry Rowell died at age 2.


1850, Edward Rowell, age 2, lives with his parents Daniel 37 and Hannah Rowell 33, other children, George W. Rowell 13, Ebenezar [sic] Rowell 12, Jonathan Rowell 10, Ezekiel P. Rowell  8, Helen M. Rowell 5, Sarah F. Rowell 4 and Alfred H. Rowell, 6 months.


Two more children were born after the 1850 Census: Adolphus Merrill Rowell and youngest child, Luella "Ella" Caroline Rowell.


In 1860, Edward L. Rowell is 10 years old, living in Montville with his parents Daniel 48 and Hannah 43, other children, John Rowell 20, Ezekiel P. Rowell 18, Mariah E. Rowell 16, Sarah F. Rowell 13, [illegible] Rowell 5 and Lulla [sic] Rowell 2. George Rowell 23 and Eben Rowell 22, have gone west and are both enumerated in California.


Three sons of Daniel and Hannah Rowell, died within the span of 18 months of each other, in the early 1860’s.


John A. Rowell 22 and Ezekiel P. Rowell 19, enlisted together at Montville on November 25, 1861, during the Civil War. They were mustered in at Augusta on December 21, 1861 for service.


John A. Rowell is described as Single, with light hair and complexion, blue eyes, 5’ 9” tall. Ezekiel is described as Single, with light hair and complexion, blue eyes, 5’ 8 ½” tall. Both had the rank of Private in Company I in the 14th Regiment of the Maine Infantry.


John A. Rowell did not survive the Civil War and died in New Orleans, Louisiana at the age of 22. His formal date of discharge, occurred about a week after his death, on September 9, 1862.


The “illegible” Rowell in 1860, is no doubt, Adolphus Merrill Rowell, who died at the age of only 8. Another son, Ebenezer Rowell, died while mining in California, at the age of 25.


Ezekiel P. Rowell 19, who enlisted on the same day as his older brother, John A. Rowell 22, was also a Private in Company I in the 14th Regiment of the Maine Infantry. Ezekiel P. Rowell would not only survive the Civil War, but distinguish himself as a skilled marksman.


Ezekiel P. Rowell 22, had previously been “discharged for a disability”, date unknown. Ezekiel now has the rank of Corporal in Company B of the 1st Maine Sharpshooters.


The Maine Sharp Shooters were an elite group of highly skilled marksmen, who were required to complete a test consisting of 10 shots at 200 yards, striking all within a target, the size of a dinner plate.


“No man would be enlisted who could not put ten bullets in succession within five inches from the center at a distance of six hundred feet from a rest or three hundred feet off hand.”


“A potential recruit was required to fire his own open sight rifle, fire ten consecutive rounds, reloading as fast as possible, at two targets. The first target was 200 yards away and fired at using a rest, the other target was placed at 100 yards and fired at offhand. A contestant missing the targets or averaging more than five inches (known as the string of 50) from the center was disqualified.”


For an account of the 20th Maine at Little Round Top.


The Maine Sharp Shooters held the honor of being the first unit in line to receive the Confederate Surrender at Appomattox Courthouse. A monument to Company D, 2nd US Sharpshooters, is in Gettysburg.


On September 17, 1864, in Belfast, Maine, Ezekiel P. Rowell 22, reenlisted for the Civil War. On October 19, 1864 in Montville, he married Mary F. Whitten[16], just a few weeks before he was mustered in, at Augusta on November 4, 1864.


Ezekiel is now described as being 5’ 11” inches tall, brown hair, light complexion and blue eyes. When the Maine Sharp Shooters ceased to exist, he was transferred to the 20th Maine Infantry, on June 21, 1865. He left the service 5 days later, “discharged by order”.


Ezekiel P. Rowell and Mary Whitten had two children: George Wilson Rowell[17], named for his uncle and Olive Alice Rowell[18], who would marry Edgar L. Stewart[19] on June 21, 1890, in Montville.


In 1900, in Montville, Edgar L. Stewart 30, Olive Stewart 29, their son, Loren T. Stewart 9, live in the household of patriarch, Loren E. Stewart[20] 60, wife Annie V. Stewart[21] 58, their son Frank Stewart[22] 23, his wife Alice R. Stewart[23] 24 and their son George E. Stewart[24] age 1.


Alice R. Stewart (Alice Vose Rowell) is the daughter of George Wilson Rowell (Chapter 3) and Abigail Bailey[25]. On November 16, 1898, in Montville, Alice V. Rowell 21, married Frank Loren Stewart 22.


In 1910, Edgar L. Stewart 39, single is employed as Superintendent of the Ferris Industrial School in Marshallton, Delaware. In 1920 Edgar, 49, now divorced, lives with his father Loren E. Stewart, in Montville.


In 1930, Edgar L. Stewart 59, claiming to be widowed, is employed as an “Attendant” at the “Insane Hospital” at Danvers, Massachusetts. This is the last record found for Edgar L. Stewart. Olive died at age 56.


In 1880, in Montville, Ezekiel P. Rowell 38, lives with wife, Mary F. Rowell 35, children George W. Rowell 14 and Olive A. Rowell 7. After 1880, this George W. Rowell would call himself, Wilson G. Rowell.


On February 18, 1865, in Montville, Edward’s older sister, Miss Sarah L. Rowell, married Albion H. Clement[26], a Civil War Veteran. Albion and Sarah Clement would have six children born in Montville.


Children of Albion Harmon Clement and Sarah Frances Rowell are: Abner B. Clement[27], Dana Ulysses Clement[28], Charles “Charlie” Luther Clement[29], Orient “Ora” E. Clement[30], who died at age 3 ½; twins Albert “Bert” Crooker Clement[31] and Albion Harmon Clement, Jr.[32], born five years after Ora’s death, when Sarah F. Clement was 42 years old. Albion Harmon Clement, Jr., his father’s namesake, died at 6 months of age.


In 1870, in Montville, Edward Rowel [sic], age 20, lives with Daniel Rowel 58, Hannah Rowel 53 and Ella C. Rowel, age 12. The eight other Rowell children have died, married or moved away from Montville.


Before the Census on June 12, 1880, in Montville, Edward Rowell married Maria J. Morse[33].  Edward L. Rowell is a 30-year-old-farmer, Maria J. Rowell is 22 and her widowed mother, Margaret Morse, living with them during the 1880 Census, is 55 years old.


The daughter of Edward and Maria Rowell, Margie B. Rowell[34], named for her grandmother, Margaret, was born after the 1880 Census. Edward’s son, Clyde Edward Rowell[35], was born 7 years later.


Maria J. Morse was born in Knox, Maine, the youngest child of Anthony Morse[36] and Margaret Ryan[37]. The family lives there in 1870 and includes Anthony Morse 54, Margaret Morse 47, Eliza Morse[38] 18, John H. Morse[39] 14 and Maria J. Morse, who is 11. John H. Morse would die at age 21 and Anthony Morse at 64, both before the next Census.


This is an account, regarding Anthony Morse and his family, from the journals of Hollis M. Howard[40], on November 14, 1868:


“A pleasant day again, some of my largest boys were gone today, have had a good school this week; have been boarding at Antony Morse’s a very good place, their family consists of Mr. Morse and wife, John a boy of 12 & Maria about 10. Another girl Eliza lives at John W. Morse’s and goes to school, friday night I went up to the meetinghouse to see about the christmas tree, Alonzo Raynes[41] (Reference: Chapter 3 - George Wilson Rowell) & I went to Freedom, the school closed there today.”


Anthony Morse and his wife, Margaret (Ryan) Morse are buried in Allen Cemetery in Montville with their 21-year-old son John H. Morse. It is unknown what may have happened to Eliza Morse after 1870.



‘A Tragedy in Montville’

Edward L. Rowell

From the Republican Journal ~ 19 January 1899

[Special to the Whig and Courier]

Transcribed by Isabel Morse Maresh


Belfast. Jan. 16. News of a very sad affair has just come in from Montville. The reports conflict in some points, but the main facts are as follows: Mr. Ed. Rowell, a farmer, who lives near Hogback mountain in Montville became suddenly insane early last Tuesday morning and violently assaulted his wife with a flatiron. His daughter, a young lady, came to her mother’s assistance and was stuck as to be seriously but not fatally injured. Mrs. Rowell made a desperate resistance, but was being overpowered when the noise brought down their twelve-year-old boy, who had only partially dressed himself. The boy seeing his mother in such peril took a stick of stove wood and dealt his father such a blow as brought him sufficiently to his senses as to enable him to realize what he had been doing.  Mr. Rowell implored his family to send for assistance, as he feared he might become violent again.


He was finally prevailed upon to lie down and the boy started out to alarm the neighbors and bring a doctor from Freedom, which is distant nearly five miles. The lad was but partly dressed and his face became badly frozen.


The neighbors came, but at first did not dare to enter the building, as Mr. Rowell is a very large and powerful man and a brother of his several years ago became suddenly insane and killed two old people, Mr. McFarland and wife and was himself shot and killed by Joseph Raines [correction, Alonzo Raynes] while defending the other members of the family. This occurred not far from where Ed. Rowell and his family live.


At last, however, some were found who were bold enough to enter the buildings, and after a little search found Mr. Rowell in the barn. He was secured without much difficulty and the wounded wife and daughter, who had locked themselves in a room upstairs, were cared for as well as possible. The doctor soon arrived and at first thought Mrs. Rowell could not live, but later she was said to be in a fair way to recover.

The reports of this affair differ most as to amount of injury received by Mrs. Rowell and her daughter. Some say their injuries have been exaggerated.


Mr. Rowell has been taken to the hospital at Augusta for treatment. He has been engaged in the lumber business and it is said that it preyed upon his mind. The Rowells are well known and respected people and much sympathy is felt for the suffering family.




Edward L. Rowell of Montville, whose attack upon his wife and subsequent removal to the Insane Asylum were reported last week, died at that institution Jan. 17th, of exhaustion. He had not taken food or nourishment for some time previous to his commitment and at the hospital they had to feed him with instruments. The shock to his brain had paralyzed the nervous system and there was a rapid decline after his arrival at the hospital. The Kennebec Journal says, “Mr. Rowell’s sister had been an inmate of the hospital, and he was acquainted with Dr. Sanborn. He knew him and was not at all violent after the arrival at the hospital. Mr. Rowell realized his condition and a few days before the assault, he had begged his wife to call in the municipal authorities and have him committed.” Mrs. Rowell was nearly killed, but at last report was rallying, although the sock to her nervous system was very great and the wounds were serious. The daughter has completely recovered, and wrote Dr. B. T. Sanborn, the superintendent of the hospital, a very nice letter after the death of her father. The remains were taken to Montville for interment and the funeral services there were largely attended. The deceased was a farmer and millman, a good citizen, and member of the Grange. Business troubles are thought to have unsettled his reason.


From the Republican Journal ~ 26 January 1889


Centre Montville - News was received here of the death of Mr. Edward L. Rowell on Monday January 16th at the Hospital in Augusta, where he went for treatment the week previous.
