[Alice] BLANDY v. [Lewis] ASHER: Claiming homestead ownership through divorce and desertion, May 1880, - not in my tree

Journal by Bawden4

The Central Law Journal, Supreme Court of Missouri
Appeal from Gentry Circuit Court.

1. Under the Missouri Homestead Act [law went into effect 24 Mar 1873], a wife by obtaining a divorce does not lose her homestead right previously obtained by filing her claim according to its provisions.

2. Desertion by the husband, leaving his family still occupying the homestead, is not an abandonment of the homestead.

If you claim this couple in your tree, I'll gladly snail these 4 pps to you.
