It's Wedding Wednesday, but Did She Get the Divorce?

James W. Gary [sic] & Mary E. Hines Record of Marriage Dated
6 October 1858 in Bibb County, Georgia
[FamilySearch.org:  Georgia Marriages, 1808-1967]

Mary appears to be petitioning for a divorce less than four years later.
[Macon Telegraph (Georgia), 2 July 1862, pg. 4] 

Still a GEARY, but no sign of James in the surrounding lot.
