John KEARNS Charged With Adultery (1832)
As mentioned in Hendricks County Circuit Court Order Book Volume 1 (October 1824 - April 1835), in April 1832 John Kearns, who had been charged with adultery and fornication, failed to appear in court. Thomas Samuel, who had been the security on his bond, also failed to appear. In October 1832, he was still unable to be found; in April 1833, the county prosecutor told the court the charges were being dropped.
