Elko divorce and marriage - 1884
Posted by: Marian Franklin (ID *****9774) Date: June 07, 2013 at 23:15:14

My grandfather Lewis F. Franklin married Hattie E. Hale in Independence, Jackson Co., MO 15 July 1880. After a business failure in the 1880s in San Diego CA Hattie divorced Lewis.

Nevada marriage records
Hattie E. Hale Kansas City, Missouri m. J. G. Weatherly Humboldt Co.,
Marriage Date:
Apr 22, 1884
Marriage Location:
Elko, Elko Co., Nevada

Is it possible that Nevada was giving "quickie" divorces back in the 1880's? How would I search for a divorce record?

Jesse G. Wetherlea is in the 1900 census in Humboldt Co., CA working in a lumber camp as a laborer. He is 69 and stated that he was married and had been for 16 years. I have been unable to locate his wife, Hattie or the two daughters she had with Lewis Franklin.
