Ida LOGSTON gives birth to illegitimate child (1881)

As mentioned in Hendricks County probate records, in 1881 Ida Logston had filed a bastardy suit against Douglas Hall in Hendricks County Circuit Court, alleging he was the father of her illegitimate child Grace Logston. In September 1881, Douglas Hall (with Thomas B. Hall, witness) agreed to pay Grace's guardian, John W. Tinder, $250 (payable in 5 annual installments of $50, beginning in December 1881 and ending in December 1885) for the care of the child. In exchange, the bastardy suit against Douglas Hall would be dismissed.
