Updated Divorce Action in Williams County, Ohio - Brown (Andrew)


Andrew Brown v Julia Ann (Cain) Coon Hamilton Brown (Journal 9 p180 - June 1877; Roll 30 case number 23 - Apr 1876) – see Kint, Spring divorce detailings

By Pamela Pattison Lash (updated 9 Apr 2011)

Until recently I only knew the wife of this detailing as Julia Ann.  Thanks to a query by researcher Sally Ryan (thank you), I put more data together and have reposted this detailing.  New information is in red.

The couple was married on 15 Mar 1867, Hillsdale Co, MI.  The online marriage record shows the wedding was held on 19 Mar 1867 in Amboy Twp, Hillsdale Co, MI. According to the 1870 NW Twp, Wms Co, OH federal census, p3, the couple was listed as Andrew Browne 53 PA, Julian 38 OH, Samuel 13 OH, Ezra 9 OH, and Mary E 7 OH.  It would appear that the three children were issue of a previous marriage of the husband; however that is not the case – Samuel and Ezra were Coon and Mary E was Hamilton.

Andrew charged that Julia was the wife of a living spouse, Alexander Hamilton.  The court granted this divorce, but before the divorce was issued, Andrew took out a marriage license on 4 Feb 1876, Wms Co (Marriage V4 p447) to wed Mrs. Henrietta Shinn.  The license was not returned.  This Henrietta Shinn was formerly married to Aaron Shinn in Wms Co (Marriages V3 p98) on 4 May 1860; her maiden name was Henrietta C. Speaker.  Andrew T. Brown, if this was the subject of this divorce, married Hattie S. Spangler in Wms Co on 14 Mar 1880 (Marriage V4 p680).

Julia Ann Cain, the daughter of Samuel and Esther Mocherman Cain, was born 7 Jan 1832 in Stark Co, OH; she died on 21 Oct 1904 in Superior Twp, Williams Co, OH and was buried in the Eagle Creek Cemetery
