  • Notes  Married:
    • Although the courthouse records for that period were later burned in a riot, Lafcadio seems to have secured a license himself, apparently through withholding the fact that Alethea was a Negress. After his death Alethea's claim to a widow's share of his estate was denied on the grounds that such a marriage could have been performed only by fraud,but the court felt compelled to believe her testimony and supporting witnesses.
