Nina SIMS receives $72,000 in alimony (1955)
As mentioned in Hendricks County Circuit Court Civil Order Book Volume 103 (September 1954 - October 1955), in July 1955 Nina Sims was granted a divorce from Frank Z. Sims (case #19724). Their case had originally been filed in Marion County Superior Court but had later been transferred to Hendricks County Circuit Court. As part of the divorce decree, Nina was to receive several items from their house at 1128 North Oakland Avenue in Indianapolis as well as their farm in Johnson County, plus the deeds to three graves they had purchased in Memorial Park Cemetery on the east side of Indianapolis. Frank was to pay her $72,407.93 in alimony, plus $10,551 for her attorney fees (he already having paid $3,500 for her attorney fees).
