John Lippy v Esther A. F. Lippy, 1863
By Pamela Pattison Lash (updated 7 May 2013)
According to the Bryan Democrat, 14 Sept 1863, John Lippy provided a notice to the readership of that newspaper that his wife Esther A. F. Lippy had left his bed and board without just cause or provocation; he wished to caution all persons trusting or harboring her that he will not pay any debts of her contracting.
In the 1860 Millcreek Twp, Williams Co, OH federal census p128 the couple was listed as John Lippy 33 PA and Esther 21 OH. John was the son of John Lippy, SR., and wife Barbara Rhodes. Ten years before in 1850, John was not married and lived with his parents in Franklin, Richland Co, OH. Apparently a divorce was granted or Esther died as evidenced in the 1870 Millcreek Twp, Williams Co, OH federal census p130A as John was listed as 43 PA along with Mary 40 Ire, Barbara 14 OH, William 1 OH, Charles Bales 11 MI, and Frederick Bales 9 MI. The new wife, Mary Marming Balis/Bales/Boyles, was born in 1832, Ireland; she was the former wife or widow of John Boyles of Hillsdale Co, MI.
Note there was no reference in either the journals or rolls of Civil and Criminal Court records.
