religious views. Towards the close of his life his religious rigor was much softened.
  When Lafayette, the nation's guest, reached Portland in 1825, Gen. Sewall, who was well acquainted with him in the army, went on to see him, and warily approached in the crowd not intending at first to make himself known, but Lafayette saw and recognized him and perceiving his design exclaimed, "Ah! Henry Sewall you can't cheat me." They embraced, and the aged soldiers wept. Sewall kept a diary for many years in which are briefly entered notices of events and business and family matters. This including dates from 1784 to 1820, came into the writer's hands and has been used in preparing this history.
  Gen. Sewall married Tabitha Sewall, his cousin, daughter of John Sewall of Georgetown, February 9, 1786; she died, and he married Rachel Crosby of Salem, Mass., another cousin, June 3, 1811. She died June 15 1830, aged seventy-seven years, and he married for his third wife Elizabeth Lowell, daughter of John Lowell of Bosteon, September 9, 1833. She survived him and died in 1862 at an advanced age.
  Gen. Sewall died September 4, 1845, aged ninety-three years. He had seven children, all by his first wife, two sons, Charles and William, and five daughters. Abigail was married to Eben Dutch and Susanna to Robert Gardiner of Hallowell. The others died young and unmarried.
