Dundee Courier - 4 July 1898
FOUR CHILDREN IN AMERICA.
Lord Low heard evidence in an action for divorce by Catherine Blackley or McNaughton, residing at 23 Broomlands Street, Paisley, against her husband, Adam McNaughton, sometime residing at Newarthill, Bothwell, now in America. The action was undefended. The pursuer said she was married to the defender in October, 1864. No children had been born of the marriage. Her husband was a schoolmaster. He was not in very good circumstances. He discovered he had got into debt. He left her in the spring of 1865 and went to America. He had written to her, but had not sent her money to take her out, as he promised. She had supported herself by dressmaking. She was led to believed that her husband was alive. She had received a certificate from the chief of police at Norwood, Connecticut, to the effect that he was living there, and was married and had four children. A witness, when asked if the defender could not keep himself. Asked if he was steady, the witness said he was steady at some things; he was steady in frequenting singing saloons and the like, but he did not think he was steady at work. Decree was given.

Newspaper date 1898. It looks like Divorce 8 188. ? Last figure can't be clearly seen.

So far I can't find the registrar when I google.

Thanks,

Dave

Back to 'B' in my tree.

The name of the registrar.

If not Dennis Hearn then what about Chris Shier ?

Any other guesses?
