Pearl (JORDAN) DENNEY Files For Divorce (1915)

From the Danville Gazette (Danville, Indiana) - issue of Thursday, January 14, 1915 - page 1, column 3:

Pearl Denney Alleges That Life is Unbearable with Wm. Denney and Wants Separation

The expected divorce suit of Pearl Denney against William T. Denney has been filed in the Circuit Court. The couple separated about the first of December and it has been currently talked since that time that the couple would not be able to patch up their differences and that a divorce suit would be filed. Mrs. Denney engaged the Harvey law firm to take the steps necessary to obtain a divorce decree.

The couple married on May 9, 1898. Plaintiff alleges that the defendant formed the habit of cursing her, and that he made fun of her religion. He frequently derided her, she says, because she sometimes spoke at church. She further alleges that her husband is addicted to liquor. He would bring it to the table and use it regardless of the fact that company might be present. She says she gently remonstrated, but that he told her he would use liquor when and where he pleased.

Plaintiff further alleges that the defendant was guilty of acts other than those set out which caused their married life to be an utter impossibility. She says that they parted several times and that she returned upon his promise to treat her better.

Besides a divorce the plaintiff wishes her name restored to Pearl Jordan.
