----Source: The Clark County Press Date: 8-8-1873

An old gentlemen who resides in the town of Weston, applied, a few days ago, for a warrant for his son-in-law, one Whitcome, of Sheboygan, for the seduction, last winter, of his two unmarried daughters. It appears that Whitcome left his wife a Sheboygan and came up here with various members of her family to take homesteads. While with them, the two girls, sisters of his wife, fell victims to his amorous propensities, and both are now far advance in pregnancy. Deputy Sheriff Follett has gone to Sheboygan for Whitcome, for the purpose of bringing him here to show cause why he is not worse than a Modoc. Later - Mr. Follett has returned without being able to find Whitcome.
