Alleging adultury and gross neglect, John Kelly has commenced a suit for divorce against Edith Kelly in the Knox county common pleas court. The parties are colored. The plaintiff says they were married June 21, 1910, and that three children were born to them. The plaintiff charges adultery and neglect and says the defendant spends her time away from home in the company of other men. The plaintiff charged that the defendant has been guilty of adultery with George Copeland and Samuel Vanhook. He also alleges that on June 2, 1921, the defendant was out "strolling" on Easy Ohio avenue at 1:40 a. m. with Frank Jupiter. The plaintiff therefore asks for a divorce and the custody of the minor children. B. E. Sapp is the attorney for the plaintiff.
