Sarah TOUT Sues Benjamin N. MOBERLY For Breach of Marriage Contract (1839)

As appears in Hendricks County Circuit Court Order Book Volume 2 (October 1835 - September 1839), in March 1839 Basil Tout (on behalf of Sarah Tout) sued Benjamin N. Moberly for breach of marriage contract. Later that month the case was dismissed.

NOTE: Also in March 1839, Sarah Tout filed a case against Benjamin N. Moberly under the bastardy law (which dealt with getting payment from biological fathers for the care and support of illegitimate children). The bastardy case was also later dismissed after agreement by both parties.
