State of Alabama, Wilcox county: Whereas I have been unhappily married to a Mary Carter, the daughter of Hezekiah Carter, of Baldwin county, Georgia, who has by her misconduct, deprived me of all peace and happiness on this side of the grave, therefore, I announce to the world that we are seperated forever and ever, and I hereby further forewarm all persond from trading with her as I will not pay her debts.Thorn.
