Pioneer History by Richard C. Schmal

Melvin Amos Halsted, Revisited

(from the Dec. 29, 1993, Lowell Tribune, page 7)

* NOTE -- Although this essay listed the date of death for Mr. Halsted's second wife as 1911, an unidentified newspaper obituary listed it as 1909. The Lowell Cemetery Index at the public library also indicated that she died in 1909, but Melvin Halsted's obituary put the year as 1911.
