Julia A. Noblet (Noblit) and William T Noblet (Noblit) Family History

This unusual piece of family history comes from a reseller in Pennsylvania.  It is Julia A. Noblet’s testimony against her husband, Wm T Noblet, of Kane Pennsylvania for the crime of bigamy.  It is a fascinating look at how easy it was for a person to disappear (he doesn’t go very far), and how marriage, even in the old and often glorified days, can look sadly familiar.  It’s also the tale of a woman with some gusto!
