A Much Married Printer
CHATTANOOGA, TENN., Jan. 26 - E. H. EYER, a
printer who a short time since left this city for California
in the track of a Mrs. GREEN, said to be from
Falmouth, Ky., is a much married man, judging from the
following letter received here from his third wife. It
is written from Covington, Ky., and signed M. EYER.
She says: "E. H. has been the laughing stock all
around Northern Kentucky. He has made himself very
conspicuous, and has had three wives. He left wife No.
1 in Philadelphia. He married a woman in Piqua, O., at
the close of the late rebellion. He had no divorce
from his first wife, and left her with a little girl.
Three months later he left his last wife. EYER
then went out West with a widow under an assumed name, and
lived with her nine years. She followed him around,
and finally he shook her, and I was the next victim.
