Divorce Action in Williams County, Ohio - Alberts (Roll 44)

Mary Jane Jones Alberts v Julius Alberts (Journal 14 p50; Roll 44 Box 145 case number 1676 – 6 Oct 1886)

By Pamela Pattison Lash

The couple was married in Bryan, Pulaski Twp, Williams County, OH on 18 Nov 1884 (Marriage V5 #544) as Jane Jones and Julle Albert. Mary Jane stated that Julius was guilty of gross neglect for more than one year. He was a strong, able-bodied man who was in constant receipt of wages sufficient to support her, but he was a drunk.  She stated that she was compelled to live on her own exertions. Mary Jane wanted a divorce and reasonable alimony, both of which she received.

I have searched for some other reference to this couple, but have found nothing so far.
