Dr. Joseph Singer Halstead left his native Kentucky in March 1841 to find a suitable location for the practice of medicine. He went to Richmond, Ray County, Missouri and formed a partnership with Dr. Nathaniel Davis in April 1841. In February 1842 he returned to Kentucky and remained there until June 1855 when he purchased farm land in Section 27, Breckenridge Township, Caldwell County, Missouri. He did not practice medicine after moving to Breckenridge Twp. He died at the age of 107.
