- SUICIDE AT GEORGETOWN.
Mrs. T. J. Halstead, Formerly of
Acton, Drowned herself Satur-
Late on Saturday evening last, Mrs. T. J. Halstead disappeared from her home in Georgetown and, though dilligent search was made, her whereabouts was not ascertained until about noon on Sunday, when her body was seen floating in Lawson's pond on Mill street. Mrs. Halstead had not been in good health for some time and she was no doubt mentally incapacitated in consequence.
There was no one at home at the time except Dr. Halstead, the father of her husband. Some time ago Mr. Halstead took a situation in Hamilton and Miss Halstead, the adopted daughter, was living in Toronto.
An inquest was held on Monday and the jury rendered an open verdict, being unable to decide whether death was due to suicide or accident.
The funeral was held on Tuesday, and interment took place at Rockwood.
While a resident of Acton for a number of years, Mrs. Halstead was much esteemed in the circles in which she moved. Her untimely end is much regretted.
