Brooklyn Union Argus
November 18, 1882

One Man’s Two Wives

Mrs. Ettie LARBIG, who styles herself a “story writer” charged Adam LARBIG
with assaulting her on Friday last at her house 55 South Eighth street. She
said she had married him in 1875 and had found out since that he had another
wife before he married her. He had frequently beaten her. He denied the
assault, alleged that the marriage with her was not legal, that the
certificate produced was a forgery and that she drank to excess. Letters in
which he called her wife were produced. Justice KENNA fined him $15 for
assault and the first wife paid the fine.
