Iowa State Reporter, Waterloo (Black Hawk Co.), Iowa, 18 July 1877.

N.W. Barlow, of Fort Madison, swore that Miss S. Johnson was of age, and the clerk issued a marriage license. It now comes to light that the girl has only seen twelve summers, and that Barlow swore falsely for his friend Karns, who was married to the child. Barlow has been arrested and lodged in jail, and the authorities are after Karns and his young wife.
