Harlan HADLEY sued for seduction (1869)
According to an entry in Hendricks County Circuit Court Book volume 11 (which covers November 1869 to May 1871), in November 1869 the court heard the petition of Sarah Ann Amick, who was suing Harlan Hadley for seduction. A jury deliberated but failed to reach a verdict. Then in April 1870, the court approved Amick's request to transfer the case to Marion County Circuit Court.
