Matilda Deiper/Dupre v Charles Deiper/Dupre (Journal 5 p424 - 9 Nov 1855; p441 - 18 Mar 1856; Roll 9 case number 147 - Mar 1856)
By Pamela Pattison Lash (updated 2010)
The couple was married on 6 Apr 1852 in Richland Co, OH. Their surname may be DEIPER; there appeared to be no record for this marriage in that county. Matilda stated that on 26 June 1852 the couple was in Richland Co on their way to a religious meeting; they got about 1/4 mile on the trip when Charles stopped and pretended that he forgot a handkerchief and started back home to get one. He left her on the road and she had not seen him since. On 5 Sept 1855 she learned that he resided in Shelby, Richland Co, OH. The case was dismissed.
