Mrs. Elizabeth Gebhart Asks For Divorce
From John W. Gebhart
            Married on November 5, 1923, and separated two days later was the experience of  Elizabeth Gebhart and John W. Gebhart, according to a complaint for a divorce which was filed in the Shelby Circuit Court today by Mrs. Gebhart, against her husband. Herbert C. Jones represents the plaintiff, who asks the court for an order restoring her former name of  Elizabeth Moore.
          Mrs. Gebhart, in her complaint, says that she was sixty-five years old at the time she married Mr. Gebhart.  She states that she had been making her home with her daughter, near Morristown, and that the defendant had promised to make a good home for her in Rush County.
          After their marriage, Mrs. Gebhart says that they went to his home in Rush county, and that the day following their marriage Mr. Gebhart’s son arrived and upbraided the defendant for marrying.  At that time Mrs. Gebhart alleges that her husband told her that she must sign an agreement relinquishing her property rights. She stated that she agreed, and that the son continued to protest against the marriage to such an extent that her husband ordered her to leave.  She says that when she refused that he took her back to the home of her daughter.  The wife says her husband did not contribute to her support.
