Oliver J. LAND Sent to Boys Reform School (1895)
As mentioned in Hendricks County Civil Order Book Volume 39 (May 1895 - April 1896), during the September 1895 term of circuit court, John H. Land petitioned the court to have his son, Oliver J. Land, age 9, committed to the Indiana Reform School for Boys in Plainfield because he was "incorrigible." The petition was granted and he was ordered committed until he turned 21.
