NEWSPAPER TIDBIT: Danville Marriage Was Bigamous (1921)

from The Republican (Danville, Indiana) – issue of Thursday, September 29, 1921 – page 1, column 6:

James C.S. Nightingale and Goldie Fay Cummins were married in Danville, April 5. When he secured the license he said he had never been married. Authorities in Cleveland seem to have another opinion and Nightingale is serving a term in the work-house at Cleveland on a charge of child desertion, the child being seven months old. Prosecutor Hume is making arrangements to have the man brought to Danville to answer to the charge of bigamy. When he secured the license, Nightingale said he was a railroad man. His bride gave her residence as on a rural route of Indianapolis and her occupation as a bookkeeper.
