JOHN (& Helena Young) BOOKER


Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Argus News May 28, 1892 p 4

Matrimony was so sweet and yet so bitter he tried it again and didn't fail to "git" her. His name was John Booker and hers, after the first marriage, Helena Booker. After their second marriage it remained the same in both caes. They lived up in Sugar Creek Township and couldn't get along trotting in double harness so a divorce was procured. She then became his housekeeper, instead of his wife. Having tired of this way of living they again concluded to splice and Justice Chumasero this afternoon did the splice act to the satisfaction of both. - typed by kbz

John Booker of Ladoga has filed a cross complaint in the divore suit brought by his wife. He claims that she has a violet temper and has been a systematic nagger. She threatened to send him to the penal farm and forced him to stay out in the barn and sleep. The Bookers were divorced more than 40 years ago but remarried and lived together until recently. Both are over 70 years old. The Bookers are widely known in this vicinity and their home in Darlington for a few years prior to their going to Ladoga.
