    Notes 
    • Alfred practiced medicine in Champlain, New York for a short time. He then moved to Quincy, Massachuetts where he had a large practice, until a severe attack of pneumonia a few years later forced him to move inland.

      The Marlborough, Massachusetts City Directory, 1887-88, from Ancestry.com, lists Alfred Salls as being a physician living at House do. 29 Fairmount, Marlborough, Massachusetts, in 1887 & 1888.

      After a winter in California & a few years of forced retreat on a farm near Auburn, Maine, he moved his family into Auburn, Maine, where he had an active pratice for many years. He had an excellent reputation for drawing patients to him from various towns in the southeastern part of Maine. Alfred was known as an acute diagnostician & served on the staff of the Trull Hospital in Biddelford, Maine.

      The Lewiston, Androscoggin County, Maine, City Directory, 1908, from Ancestry.com, lists Alfred Salls as being a physician living at 66 Goff, with his daughters Grace J. Salls, a teacher, and Helen H. Salls, a student. It is interesting to note there is no mention of his wife in this directory.

      In 1909, Alfred had a serious breakdown which led to a move to a less severe climate in Oxford, North Carolina. He lived for eight years at The Oaks, a country home two miles from town, which did wonders in building his constitution. During most of his later years Albert enjoyed the most robust health of his life, living for about nineteen years in the homestead at 411 High Street, Oxford, North Caroina with his wife & daughters. Alfred was called the youngest old man in Oxford when he was over eighty years young.

      His home was deeded to his wife on December 1, 1917 & sold to William L. Burwell in 1965.

      Alfred and his family are listed in the 1900 US Census in Saco County Maine as living at 29 High Street in Saco.
