UltUlLCU 111 XOUCi
In order to make her eligible to draw
a government pension aa a civil war vet
eran's widow Mra. Lettle Smith, a resi
dent of California, wife of the late
Alliert C. STnlth. has filed a petition In
district court to now secure a formal
decree as of date 1SS2, affirming a
divorce which her husband secured then
from his first wife. Mary A. Smith.
It appears that Smith was granted
such a divorce by default In 1S83. but
through an oversight the formal decree
was never signed by Judge Jamea W.
Savage, and was never entered In tha
Journal of the clerk of the court. Smith
then married again and lived with his
second wife for over thirty years until
his death.
When the second wife, the present Mra.
Lettle Smith, sought to secure a pen
sion she was unable to do so. as no sat
isfactory courl record could be furnished
proving that a formal decree of divorce
from his first wife wss ever granted
Mr. Smith. 9o in order to clear up the
marital status of the late Mr. Smith and
prove that Mrs. Iette Smith wss his
lawful wife the present petition has been
brought for a "nunc pro tunc" decree,
that la. a decree now, as oT the date of
the original divorce. ,
