Genealogy is all about names and dates. Sometimes you just need one more to prove a relationship or residence. So I try to offer up some different sources from time to time, hoping that I will help someone with their research. In addition to several divorces, the following records also reveal a maiden name, the names of some children, and the records of two marriages. You never know who or what will show up in these old court records. Be aware that several names are probably hopelessly misspelled. Many people could not read or write their own names and court clerks did the best they could!
