C Bennett from Jennie Bennett
Crawfordsville Weekly Journal
22 Dec 1899
C. Bennett of CC Twp, has applied for a divorce from his wife, Jennie.
His complaint is a rather lengthy one and recites a harrowing tale
of woe. It is alleged that Jennie is a self-willed stubborn and
quarrelsome woman who, while living with the lamb-like plaintiff,
frequently slapped, struck and wounded him in a manner contrary
to the peace and dignity of the state of Indiana and likewise the
state of matrimony. She refused to cook, she refused to wash and
refused to recognize in the person of the plaintiff lord and master.
She, on the contrary, treated him like a worm of the earth and the
worm has finally turned.
