Petition #20183103


James Puckett seeks a divorce from his wife, Elizabeth Rhodes Puckett, on grounds of adultery. James states that Elizabeth, whom he married in August 1828, "has been grossly unmindful of her marital obligations, as well as of the interest and happiness of your orator, and has faithlessly abandoned them, in pursuit of an unlawful and adulterous intercourse with divers other men." Accompanying affidavits state that Elizabeth kept a house of prostitution with a woman named Miss Lantee in Mobile and that she was seen entering the house of a woman of color with men other than her husband.

Result: Granted.
