Doctor Sanders PORTER Adopted (1896)

As mentioned in Hendricks County Civil Order Book Volume 39 (May 1895 - April 1896), in February 1896, Reason R. Reader petitioned the circuit court to adopt Doctor Sanders Porter as his heir-at-law, noting that Porter's mother was dead and the whereabouts of his father were unknown. The court granted his petition, noting that Porter's name would not be changed.

NOTE: The 1900 Hendricks County census (enumeration of the town of Danville) shows Reason R. Reader born April 1838 and among those listed in his household is "grandson" Doc Porter born January 1890.
