"Stowe Ancestry", J. Ronald Stowe 
Samuel graduated from Harvard College in 1645, and assisted his father as a teacher in the Roxbury Grammar School, while preparing for the Ministry under the tutelage of the Rev. Maverick. He preached first at Chelmsford, later at Charlestown, Wethersford, Middletown, and Simsbury, later returned to Middletown, Conn., where he died. He had several children but the name Stowe became extinct in his line with the death of his only grandson, who died unmarried in his twenty-second year. Though the above statement is true, the name Stowe was again introduced in his line by the marriage of Harriet Elizabeth Becher, one of his descendants, to Prof. Calvin Ellis Stowe, from another branch of the family.
