Alonzo EARL Adopted (1896)
As mentioned in Hendricks County Civil Order Book Volume 40 (May 1896 - March 1897), in November 1896 William M. and Susan Dillon filed a petition to adopt Alonzo Earl, a child born 12 April 1875, who had been living with them since 23 June 1886. The child's parents were dead and he had no known living relatives. The petition was granted and the child's name was changed to Alonzo Dillon.
