1870; p489 - 15 Nov 1870; p573 - 31 May 1871; Roll 23 case number 36 - May 1871)
The couple was married in Millcreek Twp, Wms Co on 7 Apr 1867.
In the 1850 Millcreek Twp federal census, p32B, Jane 16 OH was listed
with her parents Abijah and Lydia Whelphy Coleman.
The Oxenrider couple was listed in the 1870 Madison Twp, Wms Co federal
census, p1, as Henry 50 PA and Jane 33 OH.
Jane stated that on 12 Aug 1870 Henry was extremely cruel and guilty of
gross neglect. She was dangerously
ill and unable to get out of bed for five days.
Henry refused to help her or obtain medical aid.
She was afraid of him. He
had goods and chattels of $1,000 and 94 acres of real estate in this county.
Henry answered these charges and denied all.
Jane stated she was destitute and could not even pay for the fee money
for her witnesses. They must have
been paid as the following people supplied evidence for her side: John and Mary
Coleman, William Coleman, Dr. Finch, William Letcher, and Peter Gray and his
wife. She filed twice and received a total of $100 in alimony; she came a final
time to court and asked for a dismissal.
