Austin Pierson Earns A Belated $218 Salary As Middle Township Trustee (1903)

Source: Laws of the State of Indiana passed at the sixty-third regular session of the General Assembly (Indianapolis: William B. Burford, 1903)

According to Acts of 1903, Chapter 28 [approved February 25, 1903], Austin Pierson is to be paid $218 by the Hendricks County Commissioners, as payment for his salary as the township trustee for Middle Township in 1882. The act says that Pierson served as Middle Township Trustee from April 1882 until April 1886, and that his annual report for 1882 mentioned a salary of $218, which the county commissioners approved, but when he turned over his township funds in 1886, he forgot to deduct the $218 from it.
