(25 Sep 04) email communique from Janet Crawford:
I recently came across an English record while reading some old newspapers and thought someone might need it one day:

Corke Journal
March 11 - March 14, 1770
Marriage - Mr. Thad O'Driscoll of Corke, an eminent merchant, to Miss
English, daughter of William English late of Springfield, Co. Tipperary.

New York, Feb. 21.-Post cards, on which were written fervent protestations of affection figured prominently today in the $100,000 breach of promise suit brought by Annette Bertha Grunspan, a pretty young Parisienne, against William English Walling, a wealthy socialist writer on socialistic topics, in the Supreme court.
Miss Grunspans's testimony went to show that Walling met her in Paris and proposed to her half a dozen times in as many different European countries. Walling is now the husband of Anna Struncky, noted as a writer.
"He paid my schooling in Paris and London and my other bills," declared the young woman. "I studied English and English manners and etiquette so that I could be presentable to Mr. Walling's friends after we were married, as he told me he wanted me to do."
