Elizabeth MARLEY Granted Divorce (1871)

As mentioned in Hendricks County Circuit Court Civil Order Book Volume 13 (May 1873 - February 1874), in December 1871 in the Marion County Circuit Court, Elizabeth J. Marley's petition for divorce from Henry A. Marley (case #6656) was granted. Custody of the child, Albe Roy Marley, was granted to Elizabeth until the child was 12 years old, and she was awarded alimony in the amount of $2,265, which included $1,265 of the separate property that was in her possession at the time of the marriage. Henry was also to pay certain installments for the support and education of the child.

NOTE: This court order from Marion County appeared in the Hendricks County records in August 1873.
