Caroline Shaffer v Benjamin Shaffer (Journal 10 p26 - 15 Nov 1878; Roll 33)

By Pamela Pattison Lash (updated 2010)

This may not be a divorce.  The file stated that Caroline said she had not received any money from him although he was indebted to her on 15 May 1878 for $500.  She worked for him between 3 Dec 1874 and 12 Oct 1875.  From 1 Aug 1876 -1 Apr 1877 she lived with him, cooked, and did all the housework for 30 weeks.  Benjamin was a resident of the state of Michigan.
