Back to Evansville

Continuing with a recap on the life of Robert A. Halter, brother of my wife's great-grandfather, around 1942 Robert returned to the Halter family home base in Evansville, Indiana with his wife Alma and daughter. They appear in the Evansville City Directory in 1942, with Robert working as a salesman.

Two years later, Robert and Alma divorced, and Robert married Nellie Mae Puckett of neighboring Henderson County, Kentucky. Robert and Nellie appear together in the 1945 Evansville City Directory, showing Robert had become President of his own sales company, Halter's Sales and Service. By 1950, his company appears as a real estate brokerage, large enough for the extra cost of bold type in the city directory.

Robert operated his real estate brokerage for over the next 30 years. He died at the age of 90 on 4 May 1989.
