Alice BREWER delivers illegitimate child (1915)
As mentioned in Hendricks County Circuit Court Civil Order Book Volume 61 (March 1915 - November 1915), in May 1915 Alice Brewer filed a bastardy suit against Urben Pope (case #9331) for the birth of her illegitimate child. Because Urben was under the age of 21, William P. Reagan was appointed as his guardian ad litem for the court proceedings. The court ruled that Urben was the father and ordered him to pay $425 to B.W. Anderson for the support of the child, and that B.W. Anderson was to act as the trustee for the money and make a report to the court every 3 years.
