Col. Twitchell made a trip to California. When he returned, he settled on a farm in Hiram, Maine. At his death he was a member of the school committee. Col. Twitchell was a reader, and a fine orator, and a gentleman of country and dignified manners. He was a kind and obliging neighbor, and will long and gratefully remembered for his generosity to the poor and distressed, for his tireless days and sleepless nights in the homes of the sick.

Hoyt, Universalist. The bearers were from the Masonic Order.
