Obituaries, etc. - Halstead, Kedar Wilson, 1829 or 1830-1892


The sad intelligence came from Reidville [sic], N. C., yesterday [Mar. 23, 1892] that Mr. K. W. Halstead, a well-known and highly respected citizen, expired there at 2 o'clock on the morning of that day. For some time he had been in bad health and it was a hope he indulged that a change might have the effect of ameliorating his condition at least. Not so, for at the hour named, surrounded by his family, he calmly passed away. Mr. Halstead was a consistent member of the Berkley-avenue Baptist Church, toward the completion of which he liberally contributed his means and labor. He was unassuming in his demeanor, sociable in his business career, devoted and affectionate to his family. He maintained his sterling integrity in all the relations of life to the final close. His remains will arrive here Friday [Mar. 25, 1892]. Peace to his ashes.
