Adoption of Gertrude WRIGHT (1917)
As mentioned in Hendricks County Circuit Court Civil Order Book Volume 64 (January 1917 - October 1917), in March 1917 Charles C. Walls and wife Ada A. Walls of Danville filed a petition to adopt Gertrude Wright (case #9802). Gertrude was 34 years old (born 25 December 1882) and her mother was dead; her father Edward D. Wright had not been heard from for 4 years. The court granted the petition and changed her name to Gertrude Wright Walls.
