Dr. P. E. Patton vs. Julia Patton


Source: Thursday evening, Argus New, Jan 4, 1900

Mrs. Julia Patton of New Market has been divorced from Dr. P.E. Patton the Terre Haute doctor who some months ago broke into print with a sensational story that he was being slowly poisoned by his wife. The charge was made while he was bedfast, seemingly at the point of death but so tickled was he with the sensation his story created, that he speedingly rallied and Doc is himself again. The divorce suit was tried at Sullivan on a change of venue and court awarded Mrs. Patton an absolute decree. It was further decreed that the dear doctor should recover damages from Mrs. Patton to the extend of $500. - kbz

A sensation has grown out of the divorce suit of Mrs. Julia Wilhite Patton. She left her husband, Dr. Patton, a Terre Haute cancer specialist, some 3 months ago, charging him with drunkenness and cruelty. Patton has been sick ever since the separation, and now claims that he is suffering from the effects of a slow poison administerd by his wife before she left him. Mrs. Patton, who is living on her farm near New Market, says it is only a scheme to extort money from her and she makes the counter charge that the doctor tried on more than one occasion to kill her with chloroform.
