Chapter XXII, "History of the Town of Marathon"
"Dr. Mordecai Lowe located at the Center about the year 1812 and was engaged in the practice of his profession for several years. He was the only resident physician in that region for fifteen or twenty years. He is remembered as a man of fair education, bright intellect and successful in his practice; but his remuneration for his labors was meager. He died of consumption about fifty years ago. His son married a daughter of Captain Mallery and removed to a western State, where his wife died, leaving a daughter who now lives with her aunt, Mrs. Nathan Smith, in Cortand village. Dr. Lowes daughter married William Hinman, of Merrill Creek, town of Marathon."
