Bennett  of Cincinnati are the only living persons who attended the rite.
          Following the wedding the couple resided in Connersville for a short time and they have lived in Shelbyville for more that 48 years.  Mr. Turner retired several years ago after being employed by the Indiana Bell Telephone Company for 39 years.  Both he and Mrs. Turner are active members of the West Street Methodist Church.  They are the parents of two children,  Joseph R. Turner  of the Knightwtown Road and  Mrs. Otis A. (Dorothy A.) Fraker  of Fairland.  They have two grandchildren, John J. Turner  and  Anne T. Fraker. Contributed by Phyllis Miller Fleming

          Lee F. Wilson, Saturday, filed a suit in the Circuit Court for his client,  Joseph F. Turner,  in which Joseph alleges that his mother-in-law,  Mrs. Barbara Knowlton,  is guilty of alienating his wife’s affections, and that he wants damages in the sum of $5,000.  Joseph was married to  Isadore Knowlton on August 9, 1894, and lived with her only a month and a few days when, as he alleges, Mrs. Knowlton tore her from his bosom and home, which he had provided for her in Johnson county.  Attorney Wilson will be assisted in the case by Attorney Robert Miller, of Franklin, and the suit will be watched with deep interest, owing to the fact that no similar case has ever appeared on our docket.  Mrs. Knowlton is a wealthy resident of Hendricks township.
