Judge John Lowell, III

A large boulder of Roxbury puddingstone marks the Lowell Family Lot on Blue Hill Avenue with a bronze marker to John Lowell (1824-1897) and his wife Mary Buckminster Lowell. He was the son of John Amory and Susan Cabot Lowell and was born at Bromley, the Lowell Family seat in Roxbury.
Educated at Harvard College and the Harvard Law School, he served as judge of the District Court of the United States. In the rear of the lot are the individual headstones of Mary Emlen Lowell, John Lowell, and their son John Lowell Jr.
