An Orange County Divorce Case:
Middletown, N.Y., Feb. 7.
Robert A. Sinsabaugh, a member
of one of Orange County's best
families, was graduated from the
New York Dental College about 20
years ago. He went to Brazil and
became prominent as a dental
surgeon in Rio Janeiro. In 1861 he
came home to this place on a
visit, and his family endeavored
to induce him to remain in this
country. He was determined to
return to Brazil, however, and had
the day set for his sailing, when
he met at a party in Middletown a
Miss Green, daughter of Lewis
Green, a wealthy farmer of
dolsontown, this county.
Her suit for divorce was tried in Poughkeepsie, and her petition was denied. Dr. Sinsabaugh and the physician were indicted, but a nolle prosequi was ordered in the case. The suit to recover the jewelry was withdrawn. Dr. Sinsabuagh's suit for divorce was referred to William Vanamee, of this place, for a hearing. The wife attempted no defense, and the testimony showed such flagrant infidelity on her part that the Referee reported in favor of an absolute divorce. Judge Barnard has confirmed the report.
