Divorce Action in Williams County, Ohio - Householder

Queen Altriver/Atkinson Householder v Louis Householder (Journal 8 p191 - 14 Nov 1873; Roll 26 case number 73 - Nov 1873)

By Pamela Pattison Lash (updated 2010)

The couple was married in Uniontown, Stark Co, OH on 12 Nov 1857, according to Queen, but a check of the marriage records there did not yield this information.  In the 1860 Center Twp, Wms Co, OH federal census p91, the Householder family was recorded as Louis 29 Elser, Uran 21 OH, Sarah J 2 OH, and William 1 OH; a Jacob Householder 39 Elser and his family lived nearby.  The family increased and moved according to the 1870 Bryan, Pulaski Twp federal census p20 as Quiver C 32 PA, Louis 46 ELS teamster, Sarah J 13 OH, Milton 12 OH, Emma 6 OH, and Louis 3 OH. 

Queen stated that the couple had five children, Sarah J (16), Milton HW (14), Emma C (10), Louis A (6), and Anna Belle (b 6 Mar 1871).  She asked for reasonable alimony as Louis refused to furnish support for the children.  He left her on 30 June 1870.  Louis was ordered by the court to pay alimony of $100 and an additional $100 for six years.
