Sheriff Culver Went After Mrs. Leach,
Returning With Her Monday.
David A. Leach, who was married to a Mrs. Catherine Clark about a year ago, has "begun an action against her for bigamy. She deserted Leach in May, and it is only recently he learned that she was with her daughter at Laramie, Wyo. The proper papers were secured for her arrest from Gov. Cummins, and Sheriff Culver started for Laramie early last week, returning on Monday with his prisoner, and she will probably remain in confinement until court convenes.
It is claimed that the evidence, is conclusive that she has three husbands living, that she married Clark years ago and bore him a daughter, now aged 14.
June 3, 1903, she married Conrad Christy, leaving him over one year later.
June 14, 1904, she married David A. Leach of West Union, whom she deserted May 16, 1905.
