The Shelbyville Republican
A divorce was granted
Mrs. Bertha Ellen Mackey this morning
by Judge Blair and she was allowed to resume her maiden name, Bertha Ellen
Fortune. They were united in marriage September 16, 1907 and resided
together until January 17, 1911, when they separated. Mrs. Mackey charged her
husband with being cruel and inhuman in his treatment; that he refused to
accompany her anywhere; that he used abusive language and was morose and sullen.
For the past two years he failed to provide for his wife and she charges him
with gambling and being a man of dissolute habits.
Saturday April 15, 1911
