JAMES WILLOUGHBY LOWELL, BORN MARCH 21, 1782, IS MY 3RD GREAT GRANDFATHER.
My Roff & Lowell Family is dedicated to my maternal grandmother, Ella Margaret Meader Reynolds. She was the granddaughter of Collins Roff and Mary Ann Lowell.
The history is very interesting.
The following paragraph gives one account of the Cassity family.
James Willoughby Lowell was born March 21, 1782 in Hartford, Connecticut. He married Margaret Cassity about 1816. She was the daughter of Col. Cassity of Cassity Hollow, New York, and her grandfather was Capt. James Cassity, who held a captain’s commission in the English army during the Revolutionary War, but lost his commission; had his property, consisting of a grist mill and other properties, confiscated in Detroit, Michigan; was imprisoned in the Quebec jail, from which he escaped by drilling through the walls. He suffered all this at the hands of the English for shooting Indians who were passing by his tent, carrying the bloody scalps of American women and children for which they were paid by the English government.
