Maquoketa Sentinel, November 20, 1856.
Wm. H. Jones is under arrest at Muscatine for bigamy. He had a wife and child in Washington County, left them and went to Kansas about two years ago. Returned a few weeks since and married Miss M. O. Bartlett, a “very young and inconsiderate girl,” says the Journal. He was arrested at the instance of his first wife.
