(left) From a map of Somerset County in 1860, the homes of Lovell Shattuck and Joseph Brown (and wife Lucy, Lovell's daughter). According to the 1860 Agriculture Schedule, he had 10 acres of improved land, and 3 unimproved, with a $500. value. A decade earlier, he had 40/30.
Having lost a court case, he sold this land in South Solon and moved to the village. He had a 10 square rod lot on the west side of the country road to Bingham, next to E. Coolidge. He sold this on 30 Apr 1880 [Somerset Cty Deeds, v. 168, pg 91], and is not found on the 1880 census two months later.
During the Civil War, Lovell signed up with sons Alphonso and Josiah in Dec. 1861 (son William would do so 3 months later), into what would become Co. I of the 14th Maine Infantry. "Lovel" claimed to be age 44, though he was actually a decade older. He was home sick at the time he was supposed to gather for the medical exams, so never joined. Josiah, who was only 16 at the time, said he was 18, but was rejected. Alphonso was accepted, but died 8 months later from sickness in New Orleans. Below is the enlistment sheet (click on image to enlarge):
