  • 20 May 1914 For the first time in the history of Allen county, a husband has filed suit against his father-in-law for alienating the affections of his wife, the daughter of the man against whom the suit is brought. Yesterday, in superior court, Harold Walter Bishop began action against David H. Hartman for $10,000 damages, the complaint charging that the defendant alienated the affection of Bishop's wife and caused her to get a divorce and leave him. Bishop says in the complaint that he was married to Cora M. Hartman, daughter of the defendant, January 17, 1912, and that for some time the couple lived happily and without the least bit of dissension. In a couple of years a baby daughter came to bless the happy home and Bishop then began to idolize his wife. He made a good salary as a painting contractor and provided for his wife as best he could, be claims. Finally, the defendant, father of the wife, persuaded Bishop and his bride to come to his home in the county and live with him. He readily consented, and according to the complaint, from that time on Hartman began to influence his daughter to have nothing to do with her husband. With persuassive powers and unserupulous measures, the complaint alleges, the father began to exert undue influence over the wife of the plaintiff, and by his most ingenious and artful efforts, his constant and cunning pleading and unfair conduct, Bishop's wife turned against him. The complaint goes on to state that the defendant father often told the wife that she should not have married a fellow from the city, but the if she had married a country boy she would now have a big farm. The defendant's conduct has caused the wife to become cool and nor trsponsive to the warnth and tenderness of plaintiff always had for his wife, and the father of the girl is responsible for it all, Bishop alleges. One day Hartman brought his daughter to town "to see a lawyer," as the complaint says. Mrs. Bishop did not know the purpose of the visit, but when they reached the lawyer's office, Hartman persuaded Mrs. Bishop to sue for a divorce on the grounds of non-support. She did so, after repeated pleadings by her father, and the suit was not contested by Bishop. He charges, however, that every allegation was false and expects to prove it when the case comes to trial. Another allegation is that on the same evening the divorce complaint was drawn Bishop when to the home as usual, after a hard day's work, and his father-in-law told him that he had to get out, and that if he didn't, he (the defendant) would kick him out. His suitcase and other personal belongings were also neatly set aside for him, he charges in the complaint. The plaintiff Bishop further alleges that part of the time he not only supported himself and wife, but also the defendant father of the girl. Hartman is alleged to own $15,000 worth of property, and since he has been responsible for taking away the love that was once pure and strong. Biship believes he has been damaged in the sun of $10,000, and asks the court to give him that amount. Hartman is a prosperous Allen county farmer, and Bishop is well known in Fort Wayne as an industrious and likeable fellow.

An order from court was received yesterday morning giving the child into the custody of the sheriff until the case could be settled. By agreement between the attorneys, the father was allowed to take the daughter and Judge Yaple set Thursday morning as the date upon which the case will be heard. Mr. Ruppel claims to have done everything for his wife, whom he loved, as best he could and has sent her $15 each week since he left.

  • 08 Dec 1914 Three little children, bright, pretty, but without the home they should have, prevented Judge Carl Yaple in the superior court from granting a divorce to either the mother or the father and, although the wife refused to go back to her husband and live with him, there is a possibility that in a short time the couple's differences will be settled and a reconciliation affected. Louise Kayser had sued her husband, Anthony Kayser, for a divorce. The husband contested the suit and for two days evidence was heard before Judge Yaple. After the attorneys had made their pleas, Judge Yaple began his statement to the parties interested. "I woud much rather bring this couple together than to spearate them," the court said. "It is a hard thing for the court to determine cases of this kind when children are involved. Here are three children of your own flesh and blood. They are not responsible for their being in the world. They are your children and as such you ought to live together, love and protect then. I don't want to grant a divorce to either one of you. I want you, Mr. Kayser, to cease doing some of the things you have done and I want you, Mrs. Kayser, to do likewise." At this point in the judge's statement, Mr. Kayser rose up and addressed the court; "I will do that, judge; I have always wanted to do that." Judge Yaple took the two contending parties to his private room and quietly told the wife that he would neither grant her a divorce nor a limited separation. In the meantime the court hopes to bring the parties together so they can give the little ones the home they are supposed to have.

  • 11 Dec 1914 All the allegations set out in the cross-complaint of Moses Jacobs against his wife, Amanda Jacobs, for divorce, would not look well in print.

He says she was so friendly with her brother-in-law that he drank carbolic acid and committed suicide. She also mixed up with a railroader named, Nulf, he says, and received letter from him addressed, "My sweetheart," she wears his picture around her neck and he wears hers. The language she uses in presence of thier children is infit to set out in the complaint, he alleges, but he adds that he hopes the court will give his an opportunity to bring it all out when the case comes to trail. Three times before, the husband says, his wife applied for a divorce but had no grounds on which to prosecute he suit. Eash time he took her bank on her promise to be good. Now the wife says, according to Moses, that she would not live with him though he gave her diamonds. Custody of the children is asked.
  • 12 Dec 1914 The tortures throught which Mrs. Toensing has gone, the humiliation to which she has been subjected and the apparent disgrace which has been brought upon her was presented for the consideration of Judge Eggeman in circuit court yesterday when Mrs. Toensing filed suit for divorce from her husband, William Toensing, and also asked the court to restrain County Clerk William E. Gerding from issuling a warrant for her apprehension and incarceration in the madhouse at Easthaven. Mrs. Toensing says that she was married to the defendant the last day of January, 1894. During their married life, Toensing drank to excess, swore at her and was constantly beating her up. On several times he is alleged to have said to the neighbors that "if he didn't lick his wife she wouldn't like him." Not satisfied with this abuse of his wife, Toensing, so the complaint says, had his wife taken into custody on an insanity charge. A "pretended petition," she says, was filed before a justice of the peace and in her absence, she was declared to be of unsound mind. The clerk of the court, the complaint recites, sent a copy of the findings to the superintendent of the Easthaven asylum and it is now believed that the superintendent will issue a notice of acceptance. All of the above-named court proceedings are a farce and she is a woman of sound mind to-day, she says. Unless a restraining order is issued to prevent it, she says she fears the clerk will issue a warrant for her arrest and have he confined in the Easthaven asylum. Another charge made against the husband is that he brought a woman into the home to do the housework and he persisted in fondling and kissing her in the presence of the wife and children. Mrs. Townsing says she has reason to believe that her husband has money on deposit in the First and Old National banks and an order is asked to restrain the banks from paying the money to him. In addition to a divorce, she asks $10,000 alimony and custody of the children.
  • 12 Dec 1914 A complaint too sensational to set forth in the columns of a newspaper was filed yesterday by Beulah Blue for a divorce from her husband, George Blud, to whom she was married November 1, 1911, and from whom she separated on December 11, 1914. In addition to alleged cruelties, severe beatings, hard licks and knockouts, the plaintiff says her husband knocked her down one time when she was about to give birth to a child. On one occasion he threatened to kick her out of the house, she recites, if she did not apply for a divorce. Failure to provide is another allegation, and that the defendant instructed the groceryman from whom the wife bought provisions, not to extend credit to her. Mrs. Blue says her husband gambles his money away. Wherefore the court is asked to grant a divorce, $1,000 alimony, a restraining order to prevent him from molesting her at 615 Osage street, $25 a month for support, custody of the children, an order to prevent him from drawing his wages from the Nickel Plate and for all and other proper relief.
