From St. Charles (Illinois) Chronicle, 22 Nov. 1901:
Forty-eight minutes after 10 o'clock Friday morning Mrs. Nancy C. Ragie left her home at Ramsey, accompanied by her attorney, W.A. McCoungh. One hour and twenty minutes later, afer a ride of thirty miles, she secured a decree of divorce from her husband, Andrew Ragie, on a charge of desertion. The judge and attorney then supposed that her case had been fully disposed of, but they were mistaken. John L. Bartlett of Shinkle then appeared upon the scene, secured a marriage license, and they were married by the same official who granted the divorce, Judge Wright, one hour and thirty minutes after she left herhome. --------- I am not related to nor researching this family and have no further information.
