Who's Who

PHILIP A. Biddle - Mary Elizabeth


Source: Crawfordsville Review Jan 12, 1915 p 1

Philip A. Biddle, wealthy Wayne Township farmer who was recently named defendant in a sensational divorce suit filed by his wife, Mary Elizabeth Biddle, has entered a cross complaint which makes charges of cruelty against Mrs. Biddle.

According to his answer his marriage was not one of love but followed the instance of Mrs. Biddle when a child was born to her out of wedlock. Mr. and Mrs. Biddle married 17 days after the child was born.

Biddle says that his wife knew that he was the father of 3 children by a former marriage, but after their wedding she abused these children.

The act which finally caused their separation, Biddle alleges, was the hurling of a box of talcum powder by Mrs. Biddle at his young son, Clarence. The box cut a bad gash on the lad's face and made a permanent scar Biddle declares. He says she had no provocation except that the boy accidentally rocked against her while sitting in a chair.

Mrs. Biddle in her complaint had a different version of this incident. She said the boy had threatened her life with a gun and had mistreated her and that she was given no protection by her husband.

In his cross complaint Biddle also charges that his wife quarreled almost continually with him and his children and frequently insulted his aged mother.

Mrs. Biddle alleges cruel treatment. She asked $7,500 alimony and an allowance of $300 a year for the support of herself and her little daughter, Ruth Anna.

Mrs. Biddle is represented by the firm of Crane & McCabe while Clyde H. Jones will appear for Mr. Biddle - typed by kbz
