The wife of Dakota Dan Russell, formerly of Dickinson, has been granted a divorce in Judge G. W. Granger's court at Winona, Minn. Mrs. Theresa Russell, who is 40 years of age, filed the suit alleging desertion. She resides at Wabaska, Minn. Dakota Dan was married under the name of James D. Russell in North Dakota about ten years ago. He was a well known figure in the Dickinson and Medera vicinities for several years, as he operated a ranch near Medora. He gained national fame in his suits against the Daniel Blake Russell estate at Boston, Mass., claiming to be the rightful heir to the million dollar Russell estate. After much litigation Dakota Dan finally lost out, and the last heard from him he was aboard a transport bound for the war zone in Europe.
