Catherine petitioned for a divorce September 16, 1858 because George accused her of infidelity as well as "threatened her in various ways". He made her feel miserable and just could not live in peace with him any longer. She was granted the divorce on September 22, 1858.

Supposedly George and Catherine remarried September 3, 1859, but I have not found proof of this other than they lived together 1860-1880.
