Feb. 12, 1910, Jail 
Feb. 12, 1910: John L. Grant and his wife, Margie, are in jail on charges of obtaining money under false pretenses, accused of selling their five-year lease and the furniture in a rooming house at 1401 N. Winfield St. when their rent agreement prohibited transferring the lease.  Margie Grant may have been a delicate soul (she fainted at the sight of handcuffs) but she described an unpleasant night at the city jail.
