A mystery has ever shrouded the fate of Moses Wardwell , the second son of Joseph Wardwell of this town. He was a master mariner and his last voyage was to New Orleans in the barque Rumford , named for this town, for which the citizens presented him with a flag. He piloted the vessel into port at New Orleans , thus saving the owners the usual pilot's fees. He went on shore one night to attend the theatre, and from that time, so far as his friends could learn who made dilligent search and inquiry, he disappeared from mortal sight. Many years have since passed, and in all probability the mystery will never be explained. -History of Rumford, Oxford County, Maine From its First Settlement in 1779 to the Present Time 1890
