    6. [S969] Divorce Proceedings, published in the Weekly Nueces Valley, May 29, 1858, page 3, column 4, divorce petition Sarah M. Tinney vs Edward B. Tinney, submitted by Sarah M. Tinney.
      The State of Texas: To the sheriff or other lawful officer of said county, greetings: Whereas on the 19th day of April A.D. 1858, Sarah M. Tinney, formerly Sarah M. Berry, filed in my office her petition against said Edward B. Tinney and Affidavit that defendant is not a resident of this State & C., said petition representing that on the 6th day of June 1838, she intermarried with said Edward B. Tinney in Morgan Co., Ill, where they lived happily, that they removed to Texas about the 15th day of March 1853, that soon after their arrival here, a series of abuses were commenced by her said husband, by offering to inflict corporal punishment, that for the love of her children she remained with him, hoping that he might change his course of conduct towards her, but vainly, he became more abusive, and drank excessively, that on the 24th of Dec. 1855, he abandoned her, having first attempted to kill a man known as Little Red, that he has been absent more than three years, before the commencement of this suit, and is still absent, that the outrages offered to her are such as to render their living longer together insupportable, that she has been credibly informed, that he is living in Adultery with another woman in the State of Louisana. She prays that said Edward B. Tinney be cited by publication to appear and answer said petition, before the Hon. District Court of said county, at the next term to be held in the City of Corpus Christi, on the 8th Monday after the 1st Monday of April A. D. 1858, that said Court grant her a divorce from the bond of matrimony, and the custody of her minor children, Martha J. and Sarah G. Tinney (note that this is the alternate name of "Cerro Gordo"--MAH), Samuel H. and William Tinney, and such other relief as the case may require.
      The above petition is published in the Weekly Nueces Valley of May 29, 1858 on page 3 and column 4.
