Here's a little more to add to what T. Kerwin developed for you. I searched and Family Search and transcribed the records as found, so that you can locate them again.

First, about Naomi Lufkin (wife of Alexander Hamilton, per the birth records of their children as posted on Family Search) and her Lufkin family: There is more than one early Lufkin family and they need more searching and sorting than what I've done. For example in 1800 in Sedgwick, Hancock, Maine, a Benjamin Lufkin headed a household of 1 adult male, 1 adult female, and three boys under age 10. No connection yet established.

1830 CENSUS - Sedgwick, Hancock, Maine
Only heads of household are enumerated by name. The following Lufkin households are listed:
Benjamin Lufkin
Franklin Lufkin
Joseph Lufkin <--------possibly Naomi's father
Samuel Lufkin
Benjamin Lufkin (#2)
Thomas Lufkin

Naomi C. Lufkin 18 February 1834 in Sedgwick, Hancock, Maine
Father: Joseph Lufkin
Mother: Ester

1850 CENSUS - Sedgwick, Hancock, Maine
Joseph Lufkin 52
Esther Lufkin 49
Susan Lupkin
Lucy Lufkin 19
Naomi Lufkin 16 <-----------------------
Charlotte Lufkin 14
Nancy Lufkin 9
Armeda Lufkin 7
Mary Lufkin 4

ALSO IN 1850
1850 - A Franklin Lufkin age 50 in Sedgwick in 1850 with wife Lois and their children (see Family Search)
1850 - A Thomas Lufkin age 47 in Sedgwick wife Mary kids Lucy A, Mases H, Louisa M, Lorenzo L
1850 - A James Lufkin age 21 in Sedgwick with wife Patience and daughter Clara 2.
Not necessarily a complete list

1860 CENSUS -(Post Office North Ledgwick) Sedgwick, Hancock Maine
Joseph Lufkin 61 born about 1799 in Maine - farmer
Esther Lufkin 57 born about 1803 in Maine
Charlotte Lufkin 24
Esther A Lufkin 17
Mary J Lufkin 14
Luther H Lufkin 7
Mary Lufkin 88 born about 1772 in Massachusetts - unknown relationship

1860 - Franklin Lufkin age 60 and Harriet E Lufkin 50 are on same census page in Sedgwick as Joseph Lufkin
1860 - Thomas Lufkin age 57, wife Mary E., children Louisa N. and Lorenzo are in Sedgwick
1860 - James Lufkin age 31, wife Patience 28, with Clara, Elsada, Luther, Julia, and Abby in Sedgwick

1870 and 1880- Joseph and Esther Lufkin are still in Sedgwick; daughter Charlotte still living with them.
In 1880 Joseph Lufkin is 81 and a farmer; Esther C is 77 and keeping house; Charlotte is 44 and occupation is pauper (sic)
