>> Hi -
>>
>> I hope that someone can give me some advice. My ancestor was married in
>> Miami County in mid-1883, and married to her 2nd husband in Miami County
>> in mid-1884. After her second husband's death, she applied for a Civil

>>
>> Can someone give me some specific advice about checking for this divorce

>>
>> Thanks for any advice.
