Divorced Woman Triumphs Over Former Husband and Mother-in-Law.
Miller, Nov. 6.-Love for her 8-year-old daughter caused Mrs. Rose Judson to defy court decrees of Minnesota and South Dakota, also her former husband from Montana and her mother-in-law from Minnesota, and outwit them all in the retention of the girl.

It seems that Mrs. Judson secured a divorce from her husband, Ozra Judson, at Montevideo, Minn., some time ago. Two of the children were given to her husband and the 8-year-old girl was given to her. Later the court reversed this decision and gave the girl also to the husband, who had gone to Montana.

Mrs. Judson could not fight this decision in court, so one day she took the child and came to Miller, where she had a sister, and the girl was placed in school. The child's grandmother in Minnesota then came here with an order from the court to take the girl, and on reaching Huron met the child's father, who had come on from Montana to assist her. In arriving at Miller the father met the child on the street near the house and tried, without success, to take her with him.

The services of a lawyer were sought. It was discovered that Minnesota orders were void in South Dakota, and the attorney was sent post haste to Fort Pierre to get an order from Judge Hughes to take the child. Returning with the order it was found that the husband had wilted before the mother's pleadings and had decided to press the matter no further.

The woman had told the former husband and the lawyer that if they came with the sheriff they would have to take the child over her dead body. This announced determination on her part won the day for her.

TWO WIDOWS WANT THE INSURANCE MONEY. (Mrs. Elizabeth Mullin)
Source: Oregonian (Portland, OR) Sunday, April 6, 1890; transcribed by Mary Kay Krogman

SAN FRANCISCO, April 5.-In 1889 A. J. Mullin, while traveling as a solicitor for the Masonic Mutual Aid Association of the Pacific coast, accompanied by a woman named Kate H. Smith. Mullin was a married man and had taken out a policy in favor of his wife, Mrs. Elizabeth J. Mullin, of Montevideo, Minn. The Smith woman induced him to revoke his former beneficiary and substitute her name and Mullin's wife obtained a divorce from him, and the Smith woman claims he then married her. Mullen died October 30, and two other policies amounting to $8700 were paid to the widow without a contest. The aid association has money ready to pay, but does not know to whom to pay it, and awaits the action of the courts. Both wives have sued to determine who is entitled to the money.
