Eleanor (WISE) NELSON Granted Divorce (1873)

As mentioned in Hendricks County Circuit Court Civil Order Book Volume 13 (May 1873 - February 1874), in September 1873 Eleanor Nelson's petition for a divorce from Joseph Nelson (case #661) was granted. The divorce decree banned her from getting married again for a period of 2 years, gave her custody of the child, Emmazilla Nelson, and restored her maiden name, Eleanor Wise.
