Clara WILLS granted divorce (1918)
As mentioned in Hendricks County Circuit Court Civil Order Book Volume 66 (June 1918 - February 1919), in June 1918 Clara Wills was granted a divorce from John R. Wills (case #10063). She was given custody of their son Harry Newton Wills, as well as their unborn child (due in October or November 1918). They also had come up with their own property settlement, where she was to receive deeds to real estate they owned in Hendricks County and Boone County, to pay for her alimony as well as any future child support.
