Notes / Description: 

On 16 Feb. 1835 the plaintiff was granted a divorce form Juanita Hardy. The decree also granted him custody of their only child, George William Hardy, but his former wife has refused to give the child to him. Plaintiff asks the court to force her to relinquish custody of their son as Juanita Hardy is immoral, unfit to care for any child, and is now pregnant by "some man".
