Bertha THOMPSON granted divorce (1901)

As mentioned in Hendricks County Circuit Court Civil Order Book Volume 46 (December 1900 - October 1901), in May 1901 Bertha E. Thompson was granted a divorce from Elmer L. Thompson (case #7037). William Merritt was given the custody of the couple's child, Bernice May Thompson, until she turned 21 - if Merritt died before she reached that age, then Elmer was to be given custody. Both Bertha and Elmer were to be allowed to visit their child at Merritt's house.
