Divorce Action in Williams County, Ohio - Kuhfal (Roll 48)

Eliza Kaundis Kuhfal v Henry Kuhfal (Journal 15 p412; Roll 48 Box 163 case number 163) – June 1890

By Pamela Pattison Lash

The couple was married on 16 July 1885 in Fulton Co, OH; she was 18 and he was 21 according to online marriage certificate. They had a minor son, William, who was three years old.  Eliza charged that Henry lived in Archbold, OH, and had been willfully absent for more than three years plus he was guilty of gross neglect.  The court granted Eliza a divorce.

I’m scratching my head on this one. This is all I could find on the elusive Kuhfal family – anyone have info??
