Notes for Samuel WHITEHALL

From the Whitehall & Kindred Families by Melody Byrd:

"The following note was written by Shirley Weiher (dau of Rilla May Whitehall Weiher) and given to me in July of 2000:
"....Samuel Whitehall was also a doctor. Freezone and Anacine were his products made by him. His picture and advertising use to be in "Comfort Magazine" and Peoples Home Journal."

I have an original of a 1907 advertisement from "Munsy's Magazine"
I have an original box of "Dr. Whitehall's Rheumatic Remedy, for Rheumatism, Gout. Special formula of S. Whitehall, M.D. The Whitehall Megrimine, Co. South Ben, Indiana, U.S.A. 50 cents a box."
It came with 2 flyers, one for the Rheumatic Remedy and the other for Dr. Whitehall's Me-Grim-ine for Headache and Neuralgia.
I have an original 1902 ad from Frank Leslie's Popular Monthly Magazine advertising "Dr. Whitehall's Rheumatic Cure. Rheumatism Can Be Cured Permanently." (note this is an advertisement for the box of medicine I have)"

Residences & events:

From Beckwith's History of Fountain Co, IN: "Dr. Samuel Whitehall settled in this county, 1832 (Samuel wasn't born until 1847 so his father probably settled there then).

6/11/1880 Dist 70, Fountain Co, IN. Following in his father's footsteps, Samuel was listed as a doctor in the census that year. He was 33 years old, had no property, and lived 2 doors from his divorced mother. Wife Elizabeth was 31 and living with them was a 16 year old listed as son "Frait" but it was probably Samuel's brother Frate.

6/16/1900 Portage, St Joseph Co, IN. Having moved at some time, Samuel was still a physican at census time at age 53. Elizabeth was 52, had birthed only the one child, Frank, 16, born 11/1883. She and Samuel had been married 26 years.

4/25/1910 Dist 160, 1-w South Bend, St Joseph Co, IN. At age 63, Samuel was still practicing medicine. Living with him were wife Catherine C, 63, having been married 33 years, son Francis, 25, and his wife, Florence, also 25, and 17 year old servant, Ellen Carlson.
