Divorce Record for Henry Rhodes and Lucretia Rhodes
Report from Research Services, Byron, Wisconsin dated May 8, 1998:
"We checked at the Fond du Lac County Clerk of Courts for a divorce record for Henry and Lucretia Rhodes. No record was listed in the card catalog. However, we also checked a card catalog housed at the Fond du Lac Public Library which was completed by the Fond du Lac County Genealogical Society and comprises records discarded by the Fond du Lac County Clerk of Courts office. According to one of the compilers from the Genealogical Society, records were briefly abstracted and then destroyed. The card catalog contains the following entries:
#463 Rhodes, Henry, vs. Rhodes, Lucretia
m. 12th June 1849, Taycheedah, no children
Rhodes, Lucretia, vs Rhodes, Henry
