Bradbury Boggs suicide in ME prison 1859

Classification: Query
Surnames: Boggs, Bogs, Fuller
Bradbury Boggs of Warren ME (1812-1859) m.Margaret "Ann" Fuller of Appleton ME(1826-1894) had 7 children.

The 1850 Federal census shows Bradbury living in Warren, Lincoln Co. ME alone with his mother Mary. While Margaret Boggs is found living with her family in Appleton, Waldo Co. ME with their first child Oliver who was born that year.

The 1860 US Federal Mortality schedule for Warren ME shows that Bradbury died in July 1959, cause: "suicide by poison".

I am hoping to find any possible information on why the family lived apart and why Bradbury committed suicide at 47. I cannot seem to locate any newspaper archives for that time. If anyone has any ideas, I'd appreciate that help.
