Gardner


Gardner
   In “The Colour out of Space,” the family on whose farm the strange meteorite lands. Nahum is the patriarch, the last survivor of the blight that overtakes his farm. When his wife Nabby (short for Abigail) goes mad, he locks her in the attic, where she becomes a “terrible thing [that] very slowly and perceptibly moved as it continued to crumble” and ultimately “does not reappear in [Ammi Pierce’s] tale as a moving object.” Zenas is their oldest son, followed by Thaddeus (1866–1883) and Merwin (sometimes affectionately called Mernie). Thaddeus goes mad, and Merwin and Zenas disappear into the poisoned well.
