      ______________

      Abstracted from : Genealogy of the Sparhawk family in New England, 1892, pp. 91-92:

      "After Maria White Lowell died, her husband married Miss Frances Dunlap who died some years later. The wives of this eminent man were both singularly fitted for his companiions. Indeed his first wife was gifted as a writer of beautiful poems. Her husband graduated from Harvard in 1838, and his whole life detail has become so much the property of the world at large that it is unnecessary to add anything to what has been written. His poems and prose works will live in the memory of all who read them; few are born to fill such eminent positions. Statesman, diplomat, litterateur, poet, essayist, critic, and professor! All these he filled and when his eartly career ended in August, 1891, of none could it be more truly said the whole world mourned his loss."
