Murdoch / Murdock

The  Shelbyville  Democrat
Wednesday May 11, 1910
          Another divorce case of interest locally was decided in the Rush circuit court yesterday.  Isaac Murdoch, formerly of Waldron but now a resident of Manilla, was granted a divorce from his wife,  Nancy Murdoch.  Before the filing of the divorce complaint by Murdoch, his wife brought suit for support.  Mrs. Murdoch was given three dollars per week for the support of herself and children, pending the trial of the divorce case.  In the divorce complaint Murdoch averred that his wife has threatened to kill him and that his life was in jeopardy.  He stated further that his wife refused to perform the duties of a wife in the household and that he had left home on several occasions without eating his meals.

          Mr. John Ainly  and  Mr. Frank Rembusch,  of Connersville, have rented the  Murdoch  plaining mill building on East Washington street, including engine and boiler, it being their intention to at once begin the manufacture of mirrors for the furniture trade.  They are practical workmen in this industry and will doubtless do a nice business with the local manufactures of furniture.  This new industry will e in operation within two or three weeks and will give employment to ten or fifteen people.  there is talk that another industry of the same kind will also locate here, the gentlemen back of this being Cincinnati men who have a plant in that city.

          Constable Thrall  went out on Dog Trot Avenue to-day, armed with a writ of restitution, which empowers him to clean out the burniture of the&nsp; Toothman  residence, owned by  M. G. Murdock.  This probably settles the notorious Toothman complaints.
