Mary K. DETRICK delivers illegitimate child (1871)
As mentioned in Hendricks County Civil Order Book Volume 12 (November 1871 - May 1873), Mary K. Detrick filed a bastardy suit against Asa Hayworth for the birth of her illegitimate child. In July 1871, Mary K. Detrick (and Philip K. Detrick) agreed to dismiss the suit in exchange for Hayworth writing a promissory note for $300 payable in 12 months drawing 10% interest, with the interest due in 4 months. Asa Hayworth and James Hayworth were to be jointly responsible for paying the note.
