According to Rev Delmar Lowell the first of the family name Lowell to come to Canada, was William jr and his brother Isreal. They left shortly after the American Revolution was over and headed to Hatley, Stanstead, Quebec, CA. They left for the free land to be settled.
3 generations of Lowell's in my family line were all born in Hatley. Then the third generation moved back to the US, this would be Cordan Lowell, son of Amos Keazar Lowell & Caroline Kent. Amos & Caroline also moved back and both died in New Hampshire.
