According to the book "No Rich Men's Sons," which is about the 6th Maine, Harrison was born in Biddeford and worked as a shipscarpenter.
His pension scan on www.ancestry.com indicates that he applied for his invalid (disability) pension in July, 1882 (application # 455727), and that his widow, Lizzie A. Lowell, applied for a widow's pension in July of 1896. Both applications were from Maine.
FYI, you may be able to find information about where he is buried by contacting the ME State Archives to see if they have a grave card for him (for more info on conducting research on ME Civil War vets, go here: http://cwoodcock.com/firstmaine/ and look at the research guide under the "what's new" tab).
FYI, My gggrandfather was from Sangerville and also enlisted in Co. A of the 6th Maine (he eventually served as adjutant of the regiment). In his diary, he mentions a C.W. Lowell, Esq. from Foxcroft, saying that he is "to be commissioned a capt in a colored Regt." It's also noted that the "poor fellow" seems to feel "the loss of his wife terribly."
It sounds like this is probably Mary Chandler Lowell's father as noted in the posting by "tweedie."
Charles also mentions some other local Lowells (a Mrs. Lowell, Louise Lowell [I think, but I many not be remembering that correctly], and his good friend Charlie Lowell [most likely from Oldtown and of the 7th ME]).
I hope this helps a little . . . .
