Hello, Hoping someone will be able to find a 1897-1900 divorce: Joseph J. Atkins married Mrs. Catharine Peterson (widow of John Wesley Peterson 1891). Joseph and Catharine(an elderly couple)were both widowed by their previous spouses. Joseph and Catharine married 18 July 1897 Pike County,IL. Looks as if Joseph and Catharine may have divorced between 1897 and 1900 since both show up on 1900 census living in different counties (he in Pike and she in Adams)and both are listed as widowed.?!!!!
