Notes / Description: 

The widowed plaintiff had 3 young children when she married Farmer & it was understood that he would provide for them. A few months in, the husband said he would rather have dogs eat at his table than the children. He told wife that she would have to send them away or leave herself. Defendant drove 9-year-old Jimmie from home & told him "if he ever came back there he would kill him."
