DYSON & WASSON DIVORCES
Source: Weekly Argus News, Crawfordsville, Montgomery County, Indiana July 21, 1894 p 4
Clara Dyson has filed the documents declaring that she and Peter can no longer abide together, in fact they haven't been on abiding terms for about 3 years which is just half the time since when in an evil hour the fates united them in the galling bonds of matrimony. Clara says Peter was no good, neither providing the rainment nor the food which she considered necessary to her existence and about three years ago she dropped Peter and has since trotted in single harness. Now with the assistance of Wright & Sellar she proposes to regain her bird-like freedom, the court being willing.
Another little woman has arrived at the conclusion that in her case also marriage is a failure and Hanna & Hanna will try to help her out of her troubles. Clara and William Wasson were hitched up 9 years ago but the longer they lived together the more unendurable became life. Williams made life a burden to her by his inattention and by cornering the household finances. He made up however in a gift of rich profanity and abuse and even threatned to indulge in the pleasant pastime of beheading her. It is little wonder then that Clara shed no tears when he departed from her presence a month ago. All she now asks is forthe care of their little girl, Fannie, who is about 8 years of age.
