Cleota PEARSON delivers illegitimate child (1935)

As mentioned in Hendricks County Circuit Court Civil Order Book Volume 84 (September 1934 - June 1935), in May 1935 Cleota Pearson filed a bastardy suit against Frank Barkhus (case #14503) for the birth of her illegitimate child. The court awarded her $300, with $100 due up front and the remainder to be paid in installments of $3 a week for the support and maintenance of the child.
