      Chico Weekly Chronicle-Record, Saturday, June 25, 1892, pg 3 col 3: Death of Squire Hallet. Yesterday afternoon Andrew Hallet, one of Chico’s oldest inhabitants and a pioneer of ’49, breathed his last at the residence of his brother Harry in this city, at the ripe old age of 78 years, 6 months and 1 day. Deceased was born near Yarmouth, Massachusetts, December 21st, 1813. At the age of 18 he removed from his boyhood’s home to Boston, where he went into a mercantile business. After a few years spent in Boston Mr. Hallet went to sea on board a merchant vessel and followed the sea for several years. Quitting his sailor life deceased went to the then far West, Toledo, Ohio, where he remained about three years. From there he returned to his old home and became one of the editors of the Yarmouth Register. This was about 50 years ago. For a few years he was connected with the New York, Boston and Newport fast steamship line.

      Andrew Hallet came to California in 1849 and went into the gold mines. For several years he dug the precious metal and lived the hardy life of a miner. In 1858 he came to Chico, and has resided here continually since that time. For about 25 years the deceased was a Justice of the Peace in and for this township and is known all over Northern California as “Squire” Hallet. For the past 8 years he has been an invalid and for him death is a surcease from his sufferings.

      The funeral will take place Friday forenoon at 10 o’clock from the residence of Henry Hallet, and the remains will be interred in Chico cemetery.
