Gerald Born, a descendant, writes:
Myron Stowell had three brothers who also served during the Civil War. They were John, Lewis, and Marcus. I think a couple of them enlisted at Kankakee. John lived at Lowell and Lewis lived at Water Valley. Marcus moved to Kansas shortly after the Civil War.
Their father, Loren Lorenzo Stowell served during the War of 1812, probably from Connecticut or New York. Loren moved to Shelby, Indiana from Kalamazoo, Michigan, after the death of his wife in 1846. Loren was born at Stafford, Connecticut, the son of Dr. Oliver Stowell of Pomfret, Connecticut and Abigail Strickland of New London, and married Mary Matilda Reed, a daughter of Talcott Reed. He was married three different times. By the second marriage he had a son, Stewart Stowell, who lived at Shelby.
Loren died in 1872 and his obit can be found in the Lowell Tribune. Myron died in 1911 at the Old Soldier's Home at Battleground.
