Mrs. Bergen Has Few Arrested.

New York, 1895

Frank H. Few, of Smithville, was arrested on Tuesday by Constable Ashmead, on the complaint of his mother-in-law, Mrs. Sarah Bergen, upon a charge of grand larceny. Mrs. Bergen says that several years ago she gave Few $2,500 with which to purchase a house and ten acres of land at Smithville South for her, Some time ago she engaged Counselor Stanford to make an abstract of the title from the records at the county clerk's office, and it was found that the title to the farm was in Few's name. She says he has since neglected to correct the matter. Few was arraigned before Justice Hendrickson at Jamaica on Wednesday, and gave bonds in $2,000 for examination.
