According to "Clarke Co. (Athens), GA Newspaper Abstracts 1808-1820" abstracted by Faye Stone Poss, an article in the December 8, 1814 issues of the Athens Gazette listed a number of Acts passed by the General Assembly of Georgia the previous session. One was an Act "to divorce Elizabeth O. Reilly and John O. Reilly, her husband, & to secure certain property to the said Elizabeth, her heirs and assigns, and to divorce Rachael Jones and Robert Jones, her husband."
Acts divorcing other couples were listed in the same article but this is the only one where two couples were divorced by the same act of the legislature.
Does anyone have any information on either of these couples? I'd like to hear from anyone who does or from anyone researching Joneses in Clarke Co. in th first half of the 19th century.
