Milly DAVIS Charged With Adultery (1832)
As mentioned in Hendricks County Circuit Court Order Book Volume 1 (October 1824 - April 1835), in April 1832 Emilia "Milly" Davis, who had been charged with adultery and fornication, failed to appear in court. John Kearns, who had been the security on her bond, also failed to appear. In October 1832, they were still unable to find her. In April 1833, the county prosecutor announced the charges were being dropped.
