Who's Who

NANCY - CHAUNCY DUNBAR

Source: Weekly Argus News, Crawfordsville, Montgomery County, Indiana Jan 13, 1894 p 5

And now comes Mrs. Nancy Dunbar from the township of Sugar Creek with a tale of woe wherein Chauncy, her husband, poses as the worthless husband. Nancy and Chauncy entered the state of matrimony in March 1890 and traveled a rocky road until a few days since when Chauncy kicked his Nancy out and bard upon the border line of some other state. It was the last straw and now Nancy is anxious to cross over into said state convinced that whatsoever it may be she cannot but better her condition of life or rather existeance as in the present state. The honeymoon was scarcely waning before the groom began making her life a burden so she alleges in her complaint and by cruel and unhuman treatment of a systematic character. He choked her for fun and kicked her in earnest but one of his most cheerful sources of amusement was to drag her out of bed by the hair of the head and with a firm grasp on her scalp lock go galloping about the house, mopping up the floors with her person and raising an awful dust. He has called her rude names and accused her of unchaste acts in the presence of their little daughter and other good and reputable citizens. The accusations were wholly false, says Nancy, whereas he was guilty of all sorts of disreputable deeds in addition to possessing a taste for booze that barrels of spirits could not quence. Nancy has not the "spondulix" to push her case through court wherefore she asks that Chauncy be made whack up $100 for attorneys feels and a cool $1,000 for alimony to say nothing of an absolute divorce which is among the requests of her prayer. - transcribed by kbz
