Mrs. Halm

Mrs. Halmabortionists, abortionistsfemaleMrs. Halm, “calling herself an Indian Doctress”, was arrested for administering fatal abortifacients to Miss Martha Lockdoy, age 18, in Albany, New York in September of 1857. I am unable to determine if Mrs. Halm really was a doctor, and whether by “Indian” they mean she was Native American or she was from India.
