Memorial for Solon A. ENLOE (1932)

As mentioned in Hendricks County Circuit Court Civil Order Book Volume 81 (November 1931 - October 1932), the death of Solon A. Enloe on October 15, 1932 led the Hendricks County Bar to issue this memorial about him in the circuit court minutes of October 18, 1932:

"Judge Solon A. Enloe became a member of the bar of the Hendricks Circuit Court June 4, 1897, and continued as a honored member until his death, October 15th, 1932.

"He was elected as a member of the Appellate Court of Indiana in 1918, 1922 and 1926 and served as a member of that Court with distinction for twelve years.

"He was graduate of the Central Normal College, and for a time was Dean of the Law Department of that institution.

"He was a Spanish War veteran, a member of the Christian Church and of the Masonic Order. He was devoted to his family, his country and his friends, and all were his friends who knew him. He was seventy-two years of age at the time of his death, and left a good record for loyalty and devotion to the higher ideals of lie.

"Be it resolved by the bench and bar of Hendricks County, that in the passing of our brother, we have sustained a real loss. That we hereby express our appreciation of his patriotism, his sturdy character, his professional attainments and the honor which he has brought to bench and bar of Indiana."
