JUDGE SEASE, in Spartanburg Court yesterday granted an order permitting MYRTLE ECHOLLS
a petitioner in an action to resume her maiden name, MYRTLE HALL, following the affidavits showing that the woman's husband, W.T. ECHOLLS, formerly of Spartanburg , had deserted her without cause and had married a woman in N.C. with whom he was now living in Va. He was indicted in the courts of Campbell co. N.C. and had been convicted and sentenced to 3 years for bigamy.
The woman alleged that she had lived with him for ten years until April 1, 1912, when he deserted her without cause .
The court ordered that the maiden name be restored and the records in the case will be filed with the county.
