Last November I was searching on GenealogyBank.com under Minnie Sorrell and came across an article entitled
WANTS CUSTODY OF HER CHILD. It was dated November 11, 1903. As I opened the article I was quite amazed as it stated that a hearing took place in Worcester Probate Court on a petition of a lawyer for Minnie M. Sorrell, of Bennington, Vt. to get custody of her six year-old daughter.
