I am looking for the prison or court records for James Lauritz Forbes, born 1905, died 1956. He was married to my great grandmother. Apparently, he committed some kind of a crime and she never saw or heard from him again. She is gone now, and I would like to find the details of the crime. I would not mind finding their divorce record, either. He is buried in the Chiefland, Florida cemetery under J.L. Forbes. He had a second wife, Lola Virginia, whom he married in 1938 and divorced in 1946. I have never visited his grave, but the picture online seems to have some kind of military emblem on it. The family rumors are that he stole money from a mill (cotton?) and ran across the Georgia State line into Florida. Any help or even direction would be appreciated, as I have exhausted almost every reference of which I am aware!
