Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - July 24, 1964, Dover, Ohio Wife Of 55 Years Gets Divorce, 16 Of Mate's 30 Secret Millions LVS ANGELES (AP)-For 55 years of marriage, Mrs. Ednah Race Capron testified, she had to make many of her own clothes, listened to her husband complain every day “of all the uru>leasant things that ever happened,” and was denied a nurse’s care when she was bedridden last year with a bro ken leg. Today, at the age of 74, Mrs. Capron has an interlocutory divorce decree and a <16 million settlement, believed to be the largest ever. Mrs. Capron, granted the decree in superior court Thursday, charged cruelty against her husband, multi-millionaire George H. Capron, 79. She said he told her last year, when she broke her leg, that he would give a million dollars if someone would take her off his hands. At the time, she testified, she didn’t know he had even a million dollars, much less the $30 million her attorneys discovered after she filed suit for divorce. Her husband had always kept his riches a secret from her, she said. Mrs. Capron testified to a life of frugal living, dating from her marriage to Capron in 1909, when he was a young baseball player. She said she was denied servants, though they lived in an $85,000 home in Newport Beach, Calif. Over    the    years, attorneys said. Capron built up an estate worth    $30    million,,    chiefly through property trades. Under    terms of the    divorce settlement, Mrs. Capron received    the    Newport    Beach home, a $180,000 apartment house and 800 acres of land at Laguna Niguel, a valuable residential development south of Laguna Beach on the southern California coast. Capron, who reportedly wants to keep the land, was given an option to purchase it back with a cashier's check for $16 million 35 County Correspondent-Reporters Mean Complete County Coverage The Daily Reporter between Jan. 30 and Feb. 28, 1965.
