About Sarah Higginson

Lowell married his first wife, Sarah (January 14, 1745 – May 5, 1772), daughter of Stephen Higginson and Elizabeth Cabot, on January 8, 1767. John and Sarah had three children, Anna Cabot (1768–1810), John Lowell, Jr. (1769–1840) and Sarah Champney Lowell (1771–1851). John the younger, known within his family as The Boston Rebel, and later as The Roxbury Farmer for his love of agriculture and support of botanical studies, produced the clan line that included businessmen (John Amory Lowell, Augustus Lowell, and Ralph Lowell), federal judges (John Lowell and James Arnold Lowell) and siblings (author and innovator Percival Lowell, Harvard President Abbott Lawrence Lowell, and poet Amy Lowell). Lowell's wife, Sarah, died on May 5, 1772.
