The Indianapolis Star
SHELBYVILLE -- The first definite news of the whereabouts of Carl Rafferty and Miss Bessie Ruth Roszell, who disappeared from here early this month, reached here when a postcard came from Detroit, Mich., to Miss Louella Roszell, signed "Mrs. Carl Rafferty," indicates the couple had wed. Parental objections caused the couple to slip away. Rafferty is a son of George L. Rafferty, a wealthy farmer and former trustee of VanBuren Township.

James Rafferty, who lived at Fairland, was killed by a Big Four train some months ago. He left one child and John Cheney was appointed its guardian. Soon after this Cheney, as guardian, brought suit for damages against the Big Four demanding a large sum. The case was venued to Johnson County, where it was tried; the verdict being for the defendant. Johnson County filed a bill of costs in this case for $364.40 and on Monday the commissioners allowed the amount. – Shelby Rep.
