GRACE McCORMICK GRIMES vs. LAWRENCE GRIMES
Source: Crawfordsville Daily Journal 26 Jan 1916 p 5
Mrs. Grace Grimes was granted a divorce from her husband, Lawrence Grimes, and was awarded alimony of $50 and a weekly payment of $4 from her husband to continue for 8 years this morning in circuit court. Custody of two infant children was given Mrs. Grimes. In her complaint she alleged that her husband had failed to support her for the past two years, though he was capable of earning $18 a week. He had an ungovernable temper, she charged and made threats against her life. In November, 1914, he sent her to her mother's home and quit his work, she alleged, and she was forced to go to work in a factory to support herself and children. William J. Sprow and Clyde H. Jones were attorneys for the plaintiff.
