Five Uncontested Divorces Granted in Alamance County Courtroom, 1939

“County Court in Jury Session as Divorces Granted” from the Tuesday, July 25, 1939, issue of the Burlington Daily Times-News

Neither of Five Cases Contested; Two Year Separation Clause Basis for Breaking Bonds

Grinding out divorces with remarkable speed a civil court jury this morning granted legal separation to five couples in less than an hour.

All five of the divorces were given on the basis of at least two years separation. Neither was contested.

The separations were as follows:
G.E. Love from Grace Love; Ruby S. McFadyen from D.F. McFayden; K.F. Young from Clara Bell Young; Mrs. Ola Martin from J. Frank Martin; and Robert Hazel, negro, from Lula Hazel.
The jury session of court is held once each month, usually on the third Tuesday. Last week it was postponed, however, until today.
