Mar 2, 1890 Dallas Times Herald


Augusta J. WELCH vs. C. E. WELCH; divorce.

John W. ADAMS vs. Mary ADAMS; divorce.


From Friday's Daily

The papers were filed in a sensational divorce suit in the office of the district court to-day.  Mrs. P. J. PUCKETT brings suit for a divorce against P. W. PUCKETT.  Plaintiff alleges in her petition that she married defendant in this city on the 22nd day of December 1887, and lived with him until December, 1888.  At the time of the marriage she supposed that she was the lawful wife of PUCKETT, and their union was free from strife until she made a terrible discovery that PUCKETT had deceived her; even worse that that.  She was the victim of a bigamous marriage, and had no claim on the sacred name of wife.  In Craig county, Virginia, August 24, 1880, PUCKETT wooed and won Miss Martha A. MILLS.  The lady is a resident of that county, according to the petition of plaintiff and has never been divorced from her recroant spouse.  For these good and sufficient reasons Mrs. PUCKETT No. 2 asks that the marriage be declared null and void and for other relief generally extended in such cases.



The injunction case of DINKELSPEIL against the city was called this morning, but as several of the parties interested were not ready for trial it went over until some future time.

Elizabeth GROSCUP vs. William; divorce; decree granted.



In federal court yesterday the case of WEST vs. CABELL was decided for the defendant.

James KELLY, passing counterfeit money in Hood county.

Sam MARTIN, passing a $5 counterfeit gold coin in Dallas.

These parties will be sentenced later in the term.
