Congratulations on your recent findings.I had given it a go at locating any information for you several weeks ago, but ran aground so to speak.
With your new findings I yet again went searching:
There is more information available for you to add to yours: I searched using www.familysearch.org and located much more information for you, some of what I will retype below: Theodore Sedwick Tower B: 1824 was the son of Gad Hitchcock Tower B: 1776 in Hingham, Mass. M: 27 Feb 1806 to Martha Cook, and he died: about 1839. He (Gad H. ) was the son of Lynde Tower and Rebecca Bowker.
Martha Cook B: 1789 in Penn. D: 26 Jun 1865 in Pittburgh, Allegheny, Penn.. She was the daughter of Edward Cook and Rebecca Wilson. (If I recall correctly there is additional information on this family in a published book on Maine History that has portions available on the Web) I will redirect you to that infor. when I locate it.
