After her husband’s death, Sarah was granted an audience with a medium in Boston who “communed with the spirit of her late husband.” The spirit of the deceased allegedly said that Sarah’s misfortunes (the death of her only daughter shortly after birth, William’s relatively early death) are related to the fact that the family is under the curse of the dead from the rifle, created by his father.
