AKRON, Ohio, Feb. 4. - Mrs.
Ronena E. Gaddell, a handsome woman of 40 was brought
from Marietta this evening by Sheriff F. G. Kelley to
answer an indictment returned at the last session of the
grand jury charging her with bigamy. The specific
charge against Mrs. Gaddell is that she married
Lewis Ford in Akron in 1894 without the formality of
having first obtained a divorce from James Gaddell at
Marietta, to whom she was married two eyars earlier.
It is alleged, however, that Mrs. Gaddell had a
husband living at the time she married Gaddell one
James Perdue, of Akron and that she has still four other
husband in different parts of Ohio, Pennsylvania and
The woman was indicted here under the aliases
Perdue, Merrill, Ford and Smith, but he name of
the sixth alleged husband is not known.
Mrs. Gaddell's first matrimonial venture is said
to have been with the man Merrill at South Marietta,
about 1883, and her second was not until about 1889.
She is the mother of six children, and so far as Deputy
Sheriff Ralph Hamlin, who has been working on the
case, can ascertain, no two of them have the same father,
Mrs. Gaddell is also under indictment on a criminal
charge in Marietta. She takes her arrest coolly and
told Sheriff Kelley that she has obtained a divorce
from every man she had married, and expected to prove it.
The records, it is said, do not bear out her assertion,
Judge Kohler fixed her bond at $500.
