July 31, 1746:
Whereas Mary, the Wife of John Fenby, Porter, hath eloped from her said Husband without any cause; this is to forwarn all Persons not to trust her on his Account; for he will pay no Debts she shall contract from the Date hereof.
I am not related to this family, I am just passing on this information, which comes from a book titled "Runaway Women, Elopements And Other Miscreant Deeds, As Advertised In The Pennsylvania Gazette - 1728 -1789. (together with a few abused wives and unfortunate children)." Compiled by Judith Ann Highley Meier. Published by Closson Press. 1993. Page 11.
