Petition #20183001


Sarah Goodgame seeks a divorce from her husband John Goodgame. She states that, after returning from service in the militia of the United States, he "had become dissipated & continued to grow worse and was disagreeable & abusive in his family." The Goodgames moved to the Mississippi Territory, now the State of Alabama, where they "procured property & enough by industry & economy for a comfortable support," which included "four negroes slaves of the value of fifteen hundred dollars." The petitioner asks the court to dissolve their marriage and "make such provision ... for the support and maintainance of your oratrix as may seem just & equitable."

Result: Dismissed.
