Caroline SPERLING Adopted (1870)
As mentioned in Hendricks County Circuit Court Civil Order Book Volume 11 (November 1869 - May 1871), in April 1870 Jesse M. Stevens of Danville filed a petition to adopt Caroline Sperling (age 10 years as of 26 April 1870). Neither of her parents were living and she was already residing with Stevens. The petition was granted, and the child's name was changed to Caroline Sperling Stevens.
