Petition #20585003


Georgia Ann Rivers seeks a divorce from her husband Charles Rivers. She charges that her husband abandoned her and sold property given her by her father along with a slave lent to her by her brother-in-law, whereby "she has been ever since said desertion and is at the present time wholly dependent on her own personal exertions for the maintenance of herself & her small children." The plaintiff further declares that "the said defendant had at the time of his intermarriage with your Oratrix, another wife living." Rivers therefore asks her marriage "be dissolved and a divorce from the Bonds of Matrimony decreed."
