Victoria Moloney sent me this item from the Tucson (Ariz.) Daily Citizen of May 3, 1906.
CHICAGO, May 3—Mrs. Helen Moloney, the beautiful wife of James Moloney, the Chicago manufacturer, obtained a divorce solely to get a $500,000 estate left her by her mother on condition that she separate from him.Victoria asks, is the "divorce story true or a bunch of hooey?"
They are to be remarried this summer, just as soon as Mrs. Moloney perfects the title to the estate.
This was the statement made today by Mr. Moloney, who declares groundless the charges that his wife flirted with W. J. White, the "chewing gum king," of Cleveland. He declares that Mrs. Moloney is still true to him.
"Mrs. Moloney's mother, who is an English woman of title, took a strong dislike to me. She inserted in her will a bequest of nearly $500,000 to Mrs. Moloney, with the proviso that she divorce me. So we agreed to be divorced and remarry."
"What is the name of the titled English family to which Mrs. Moloney belongs?" was asked.
"I do not care to say. I do not wish to draw them into this affair," said Mr. Moloney. "We will be remarried before September 1."
Can you find any proof that the story is true and the couple remarried?
