David Fortin, and aged man, committed suicide by hanging at Milton, Monday, Aug. 8, and was found in the barn when he was missed and search made, life being extinct. He was also a veteran of the Civil war and a pensioner. Despondancy from ill health is thought to have been the cause.

Windham County Reformer, Aug. 12, 1904
