Court Action*8 September 1924Myrtle filed a divorce action against her husband Frank on 8 September 1924 in Flathead County, Montana. Her Complaint for Divorce was submitted to the Court by her attorney, A. L. Hughes, and stated, "Plaintiff complains of the Defendant and for cause of action alleges:

"That Plaintiff and Defendant were intermarried with each other in Kalispell, Montana on the 21st day of November 1922, and ever since have been and now are husband and wife.

"That Plaintiff is, and for more than one year next before the filling of this complaint for divorce, has been a bona fide resident of the State of Montana, and is the innocent and injured party.

"That there have been no children born of said marriage.

"That the Defendant for more than one year last past has failed to provide for the Plaintiff the common necessaries of life because of his idleness, profligacy and dissipation, and that the Defendant is a strong able bodied man able to earn the sum of One Hundred ($100) Dollars per month and has at all times since the marriage of Plaintiff and Defendant been a strong healthy robust man and that during all of said time he has failed and neglected to have employment or to accept employment when the same was offered to him, refusing at all times to work except on two or three occasions has worked for a very short period of time, and has spent what wages he has made in gambling and in dissipation and has failed and neglected to furnish the common necessaries of life to the Plaintiff at all times since their marriage and that Plaintiff has supported herself and family of six children by former marriage with her own labor by raising truck garden and peddling and selling the same with her own labor and that the Defendant has failed and neglected to assist or help the Plaintiff in any way save and except a very small amount of labor in plowing her ground and has spent his time away from home at nights gambling and in general dissipation and has boarded and lived off of the Plaintiff's labor and secured the money for a large part of his own clothing from the Plaintiff.

"Wherefore Plaintiff prays that the bonds of matrimony heretofore existing between the Plaintiff and Defendant be dissolved and the Plaintiff relieved from any other or further obligation on account of this marriage."

The Complaint was signed by A. L. Hughes, Attorney for Plaintiff, and an affidavit made under oath and signed by Myrtle Howell on 8 September 1924, stated that she was the Plaintiff in the above and foregoing Complaint for Divorce; that she had read the same and knew its contents; and that the matters and things therein stated were true within her own personal knowledge. Both documents were filed by the Court on 8 September 1924.11
Court Action10 September 1924A Summons was issued by the Court in Flathead County on 10 September 1924 ordering Frank to answer to Myrtle's Complaint for divorce. The Summons was served by delivering it to and leaving it with the Defendant, Frank Howell, personally, on 17 September 1924 in Flathead County.

When he had failed to respond to his Summons by 8 October 1924, Myrtle's attorney, A. L. Hughes, petitioned the Court to "enter the default of defendant, Frank Howell, for failure to appear or answer within time provided by law after legal service of the Summons and Complaint in the above entitled cause." The Court honored the request with a note to the Complaint for Divorce file on the same date stating, that in regard to Myrtle Howell, Plaintiff vs. Frank Howell, Defendant, "In this action the Defendant Frank Howell having been regularly served with process, and having failed to appear and answer the Plaintiff's Complaint on file herein, and the time allowed by law for answering having expired, the default of said Defendant in the premises, is hereby duly entered, according to law."11
Divorce*11 October 1924Myrtle's divorce from Frank Howell was granted on 11 October 1924 in Flathead County, Montana. Her case was heard in open court and Myrtle, as the Plaintiff, appeared in person with her attorney, A. L. Hughes. There was no appearance by or on behalf of the Defendant, Frank, whose default for failure to appear or answer, was entered into the record. Myrtle and her son, Ed Fordham, testified in the matter, and the Court found for the Plaintiff, writing in part:

"... that the Defendant for more than one year next before the filing of the complaint for divorce has failed to provide for the Plaintiff the common necessaries of life because of his idleness, profligacy and dissipation and that the allegations of Plaintiff's complaint are true and that Plaintiff is entitled to the relief demanded in her complaint.

"Wherefore it is ordered, adjudged and decreed by the Court that the bonds of matrimony heretofore existing between the Plaintiff and Defendant be and the same are dissolved and the Plaintiff relieved from any other or further obligation on account of said marriage.

"Done in open Court in the City of Kalispell, Montana, this 11th day of October 1924."11
Marriage*25 April 1925She married third, as his second wife, Charles B. Smith, son of Elihu S. Smith and May Higgins, on 25 April 1925 in Kalispell, Flathead County, Montana.

Ritzman was recorded as a logger, and Mrs. Myrtle Ritzman was recorded as a cook at Wilson Cafe. George's widowed mother and two of his brothers were listed at 919 S. Main, Kalispell.14

Marriage*15 June 1947She married, possibly as her fifth husband, Theodore Robert Marshall, son of Ralph Marshall and Grace M. Lenhart, on 15 June 1947 in Kitsap County, Washington.

Smith may have simply separated and not legally divorced, and she may not have legally married George W. Ritzman.

(Witness to Will) Probate4 May 1807Two of the original witnesses, Ephraim Tilson Jr. and Obadiah Lyon were with Ebenezer Hathaway when he presented the will of John Hooper for probate on 4 May 1807 in Plymouth County, Massachusetts. They both stated under oath that they had seen John Hooper sign and seal the document, and heard him declare it to be his last will and testament. Because Benjamin Cushing, originally selected by Hooper to be his Executor, had moved from the area, Ebenezer Hathaway was appointed Administrator and gave bond as required by law. Ebenezer was then instructed to return an inventory of the estate to the Judge of Probate and also to advertise for all persons owing debts or having claims against the estate. On the same day the judge appointed a committee consisting of Benjamin Pope, Nathan Hudson and Asa Thomson to appraise, under oath, all of the estate.1,2
