"March 24, 1857, George Wardwell was found dead in his barn. He was living where Mason A. Nims resides. The barn was then opposite the house on the south side of the road. Mr. Wardwell was not a strong man. In early life, he had been severely injured in a forest, by a tree falling upon him which he had just felled. He was physically injured for life. He had the care of a large farm, was of a very nervous temperament, and being overworked and weak, in a state of melancholy, while undoubtedly laboring under some form of mental disturbance, he had hanged himself and life was extinct before the fact was discovered. He was an upright man, square in all his dealings and social relations, and this unfortunate accident, for it should really be so considered, was a lamentable affair." -History of the Town of Sullivan, New Hampshire
