Jane Todd Crawford thought she might be having twins, at least that’s what a doctor told her. She was having abdominal pains and her abdomen was very swollen and enlarged. Dr. Ephraim McDowell, from Boyle County, over 60 miles came to see her in Green County, KY, and he realized she was not pregnant, but had a large ovarian tumor. Dr. McDowell told her that he would try to remove it if she would come to his home in Danville, KY.
I haven’t been able to travel lately, so I decided to tell the story from Knoxville, TN. It is the story of Evelyn Hazen, a local woman who sued for breach of promise to marry and seduction in the 1930s.
In Knoxville, we have a local tourist attraction, the Mabry-Hazen House. Once the home of Miss Evelyn Hazen, a woman who was seduced, lied to, used, and set aside. Instead of going quietly away, Evelyn decided to file suit against Ralph Scharringhaus. Even though she knew she would lose her reputation and many friends, she stood up for herself.
