He was 78; She's 41
Divorce Granted in Macon County, Illinois
in Judge Whitfield's Court

Samuel W Whiteside married his second wife, Sarah Jane Hedrick Mosely in 1895. Sarah was the mother-in-law of his eldest granddaughter, Bernie Malley Whiteside Mosely (Mrs. Jay).  There were no children between Sarah and Samuel, although each had children with other spouses.

As can be seen from the article, it was a busy time in court in Macon County!
