Superior Court of Richmond County Georgia
Petition to the court by Armanilla Germain (nee Vaugn) for a divorce from her husband, Thomas Germain. She argued that about three months after her marriage, Thomas abandoned her, took to drinking, and sold her clothing to buy alcohol. For his failure to support his wife she asks the judge to grant her a total divorce and disolve all ties to him. The petition was filed by Armanilla Germain's attorney, George Schley on January 10, 1842.
The court found sufficient proof to authorize a total divorce on June 25, 1842 and again on January 18, 1844.
