Research Note: SEPARATED AFTER TWO YEARS.
SAD MATRIMONIAL STORY FROM NELSON.
On Saturday, at Nelson, Mr. F. Roberts, solicitor, applied on behalf of Ellen Ann Halstead for a separation order against her husband, Holgate Halstead, a weaver, residing in Rook-street, Nelson. Mr. Baldwin represented defendant. The parties, who are 26 and 24 respectively, were married two years ago.
Complainant stated that defendant struck her continually and had also kicked her. On one occasion she had to seek medical assistance on account of his violence, and in August he nearly strangled her because she asked him to do some work.
A neighbour said she had given Mrs. Halstead food "for pity’s sake.”
Defendant said he had never denied his wife anything in the shape of food or clothes. He had given her all his wages, and she had called him lazy and said he would have to "addle” more.
Mr. Baldwin contended that it was question between a sober husband and an unthrifty wife.
The Bench granted a separation order carrying 10s. a week, but advised the couple to make matters up.6 He travelled to Boston, Massachusetts in 1904. Also has a US Army draft registration card for 1918.

Research Note: LEVEL GROSSING TRAGEDY
NELSON OLD LADY KILLED

Another tragedy has taken place at Hardplatt'a level crossing at Nelson, the scene of several fatalities. The latest victim is Ellen Halstead (77). who with her sister, Martha Halstead, at 5, Edge End Cottages, Nelson, and on Wednesday afternoon they left home together to go shopping. Deceased, as she was crowing the line, was knocked down by the Colne to Burnley motor train, sustaining terrible injuries, whilst her sister had a miraculous escape. The inquest was held on Thursday, at the Nelson Town Hall, being conducted the East Lancashire Coroner (Mr. D. N. Haslewood). Martha Halstead, spinster, 5, Edge End Cottages, Nelson, sister of the deceased, said her sister was the widow of Hartley Halstead, farmer. She had good hearing and had fairly good eyesight when wearing her spectacles. Deceased had enjoyed good health for the last four years, with the exception that she was in motor collision about 18 months ago. She then sustained a splintered rib, for which she was medically attended. At 1-30 p.m. the previous day deceased and witness left home, shopping Nelson, proceeding way Hardplatl's level crossing to get into Manchester road. At 1-45 p.m. they had got through the wicket-gate at the crossing and met Samuel Heyes, whom deceased knew. After speaking a few words to him they left him and proceeded to cross over the other side of the railway. Deceased was a few yards in front of witness when all once a train came rushing between them. Witness managed to step back and avoided being knocked down. After the tram had gone she looked for her sister, expecting to see her the other side waiting for her. Failing to see her she looked down the line and saw her lying between the metals. She was dead. Witness never saw the train coming, nor did she hear the engine whistle. Samuel Heyes, 240. Manchester-road, Nelson, painter and decorator, said that 1-45 p.m. yesterday he was having a walk between Manchester-road and Edge End. He had crossed Hardplatts level crossing when saw deceased and her sister, whom he knew. They were coming through the wicket-gate on the opposite side. Witness spoke to them as they were passing. As he was passing through the gate he heard the engine of the train whistle, and turning round saw deceased, who was about to step on the line. He shouted to her to come back, but he was too late as the train was on the top of her and she was knocked down. The train came to a stop a very short distance away. He went to the deceased and found her lying with her head in the four-foot and her feet in the "sixfoot." Witness found that she was dead. The Coroner: None of you seemed be aware that the train was approaching?—I hadn't the idea. The driver was whistling when got close the crossing. She practically stepped straight into the front of the train?— Yes, and it carried her about 20 yards. John Harry Bentley, 457, Burnley-road, Colne, engine driver, of the L.M.S. Railway Company, said that 1-45 p.m. the previous day he was working the motor train from Colne to Burnley and travelling between Nelson and Brierfield at a speed of about 30 miles per hour. Approaching Hardplatts level crossing he saw two ladies and a man in conversation at the crossing and inside the wicketgate. He blew the whistle for the crossing according to the railway regulations. He then noticed that the ladies made a move as if to cross the railway line. They had their backs the train, and Guard Shenton, who was in the same compartment, commenced to sound the whistle and did so continually to the crossing. Witness applied the brakes, but was unable to pull up before one the ladies was struck by the gangway which stands out from off the buffers about a foot. He stopped the train about 20 yards past the crossing. The guard and wittness got down and found deceased lying dead, partly in the "four-foot" and partly in the "six-foot." The Coroner: You could not do any more than you did to avoid the accident?— Unfortunately not, sir. Answering further questions, witness stated that the point where the accident took place there was a straight run of about 80 yards. The woman stepped right into the front the tram just like a man stepping off the footpath in front of a motor car. The Coroner : We can always be wise after the event, but it was not wise to stop talking at a railway crossing?—No, George Shenton, 5, Penrith-road, Colne, railway guard, gave similar evidence, and added that the lady started to cross the line when the train would only be about six yards away. He sounded the whistle, but failed to draw deceased's attention. The Coroner : Was everything done possible to prevent the accident?— Yes. Did the train go over her?— Yes, the whole engine and train passed over her and she sustained terrible injuries. The Coroner described it as an unfortunate accident, but added that there seemed to have been a lark carefullness on the part of the deceased. It seemed to him to be foolish to start a conversation at a level crossing, especially inside a wickct-gate. He did not suppose that deceased ever saw the train, and it appeared a case of deceased having stepped in front of the train and being knocked down. Unfortunately she had lost her life. A verdict of Accidental death was returned.14
