Benson EGGERS Still Legally Married At Time of Divorce (1898)

As mentioned in Hendricks County Civil Order Book Volume 41 (March 1897 - February 1898), in January 1898 Benson Eggers petition for divorce against Myrtle Eggers (case #6521) was heard. The judge noted that at the time Eggers had married the defendant, he had a legal wife still living, Rhoda Morgan Eggers, but that he had believed she was dead, thus that previous marriage was void.
