Thursday, June l8, l896
TERESA MCGOVERN has commenced an action in the District Court against E.W. PARR, of Garden Grove, alleging he is the father of her child which was born to her June 6, l896. She alleges in her petition that he is about to dispose of his property with intent to defraud his creditors and especially the plaintiff and her child. She asks for $2,000 damages and Judge Towner has ordered an attachment issued against defendant's property in the sum of $l,000. The plaintiff in this case is the girl whose mother filed an information against MAHLON SHIRA charging him with being the father of the child, but when he was arrested and taken to Des Moines where the girl was, she promptly stated that he was not the guilty party and named PARR as the father of her child. J.H. McVay and W.H. Albaugh appear as attorneys for plaintiff.
