Divorce Action in Williams County, Ohio - Miller (Jacob)

Nancy Ann Patterson Miller v Jacob Miller (Journal 5 p476 - 7 July 1856; Roll 10 case number 30 - July 1856)

By Pamela Pattison Lash (updated 2010)

The couple was married in Berlin, Stark Co, OH on 1 Mar 1850 (Marriage B p340) by George Holtz, JP. Note the record showed 21 Mar 1850 as the marriage date.  By the 1850 Pulaski Twp federal census, p87B, the couple was listed as Jacob 24 PA shoemaker and Nancy 24 OH. 

Nancy charged that on 10 May 1853-20 May 1856 Jacob was extremely cruel.  He threatened to take custody of their three children, Clark (5), William (3), and Phoebe (1 1/2) and move out of the state.  She obtained a restraining order from the court for this and to keep him from selling and disposing of the real estate.  Jacob appeared and did not want this divorce.  The action was dismissed.
