Travis JOHNSON and Fanny DEE Charged With Adultery (1840)
As mentioned in Hendricks County Circuit Court Order Book Volume 3 (April 1840 - April 1843), in April 1840 Travis Johnson and Fanny Dee were charged with adultery. Travis Johnson paid a $200 bond (with John Stewart as the surety on the bond) to appear at the next term of court. In October 1840, the court ruled that the charges were "insufficient in law", and the case was dismissed.
