Lila, This really concerns his mother. I finally received the article from the Robinson Constitution,today. It is dated January 30, 1884. I am really confused.
The article says the following cases are docketed for the March term of the circuit court. The first one stated is "Martha Ross in her bill for divorce from Matthew Ross, says that after three months of their married life the defendant commenced threatening abusing and insulting her and perpetrating acts of extreme and repeated cruelty towards her, by beating her and threating her life, after which he deserted her".
If the divorce hearing was not scheduled until March 1884, and the marriage date given for George Eveland, and Martha Lake is January 8, 1884, as shown in the Illinois Statewide Marriage Index, on GenWeb, I appears to me, Martha married George Eveland, while she was still married to Matthew. What am I missing here? Can you help me straighten this out? Sharlie
