"Capt. Daniel Wardwell died in Penobscot, Me., July 21st, aged about 77. Br. Wardwell had been a member of the M.E. Church about 45 years. He lived a consistent Christian, and when death approached him he was ready and willing to go, feeling that to die would be gain. He has left one brother and several children who deeply mourn their loss, but they trust he has gone to join his companion some eight years since sweetly fell asleep in Jesus, to praise God where parting will be no more. His death is a breach in the Church which may God speedily rise up others to fill. Penobscot, September 14, 1844 Asa Green" -Zion's Herald and Wesleyan Journal Oct. 2, 1844
