I've been posting about the families of the women who married my male Coburn ancestors for awhile now and now turn to the ancestors of 3x great grandmother Lucy Stow/Stowe who married Wesley Coburn on 28 February 1827 at Albany, Oxford, Me.

Lucy's lineage traces back to immigrant ancestor John Stow on her father's side, and there are connections to many prominent early colonial families. Author Richard Henry Dana (Two Years Before The Mast) is a cousin by blood, and Harriet Beecher Stowe (Uncle Tom's Cabin) a cousin by marriage. There may also be a connection to the Merriams of dictionary fame. But her mother Anne Mayhew is a brickwall, so I'm hoping to break that down while writing about the family here.

This is the line of descent from John Stow to my grandmother Cora B. Barker:
