Inez MENDENHALL delivers illegitimate child (1914)
As mentioned in Hendricks County Circuit Court Civil Order Book Volume 60 (March 1914 - February 1915), in October 1914 Inez Mendenhall filed a bastardy suit against Herschel Montgomery for her illegitimate child (case #9138). Inez was under the age of 21, and the child died 3 days after its birth. The case was dismissed after it was reported that suitable provision had been made for the last sickness and burial of the child.
