Grace Moss wife of William Moss The Ioloa Register 16 Feb 1906 Page 2
DEATH AND DIVORCE THEY CAME THE SAME DAY TO MRS. WILLk^M MORSE WEDNESDAY. WEDNESDAY. D'ecree Was Granted Here by Judge Foust—Was She Dead at The Time? Divorce and death carne on the same day for Mrs. Grace Moss, wife of William Moss; who lived hero a few months ago. William Moss sued his wife for divorce and last Wednesday afternoon the decree was granted by .Judge Foust in the district court. That was onlr-<lay before yesterday. This morning word was received that Mrs. Moss Iiad died af Stafford, Mo., very suddenly. Her death occurred the same day. that the decree of divorce was granted her' husband. The cansc of her death is unknown here. At the time the divorce was granted the two children of the Moss's were with Mrs. Moss at Stafford, and being outside of the jurisdiction of the court nothing about th ecustody of the children was said in granting the divorce. It is probable that Mrs. Moss died after the divorce was granted, hut this fact is not known definitely here. If she dicil before the divorce was granted It might make some interesting interesting legal complications. There is something grewsomc in the thought of death antl divorce so close together. together. It appeals to one's morbid sensibilities sensibilities and for this reason the case Is being mnch dl.<'cussed.
