It's possible that there are court proceedings for this relationship. 1. When the
child went to the family, if he was considered an apprentice or as bonded, a contract
would have been entered into the court records. 2. Once the contract was completed, the
court would declare it completed.
I don't know if 1900 was too late for the bonding process, though. I've seen a
possible relative in a published index of Orange County court records where she was bonded
as a servant at about age 10, but it was earlier, the 1860s if I remember correctly. I was
never able to connect her family to my known people, though.
Perhaps the local genealogical/historical society has a list of
