Mr. Wardwell was born in Andover 69 years ago. He attended the public schools here and Phillips academy, being a member of the class of '49. After leaving school at the age of 17, he learned the machinist's trade in Lawrence. He married Eliza A. Wallace of Lawrence a few years later and when the machinist business became dull in New England he went to Pittsburgh, Pa., where he remained five years as foreman in a machine shop. On his return to this vicinity he entered the employ of the David & Furber machine shop at North Andover and remained with the concern several years. He then went back to Lawrnce and for 15 years was employed as foreman in the Pacific Mills. He removed to Lynn fourteen years ago and up to last July he was employed by the Thompson Electric Welding Company. If he had lived until next April, he and his wife would have rounded out a half century of married life. Besides his wife he leaves a son, Herbert Wardwell of Quincy, and 3 daughters: Mrs. Albion Foss of Lynn, Mrs. Edward L. Jacques of Haverhill and Mrs. Albert Lee of Concord. He was the eldest son of Margaret Eliza Frye (Dodge) and Simon Wardwell (1805-1902). Three sisters reside in Andover: Mrs. I. C. Randall, Mrs. Georgiana Dole, and Mrs. E. D. Ladd.
