RULE ON ADOPTION OF ADULTS
MAY HAVE WIDE EFFECT
Adoptions of adults in Illinois are
illegal, according to a decision given
by the state supreme court. The
court's decision pertains directly to
the case of Mrs. Lillian E. Davies,
4406 Magnolia av., who was adopt
ed at the age of 30, in 1909, by the
late James U. Borden, who deeded
her his $100,000 estate.
It is believed that millions of dol
lars' worth of property will be affect
ed by the decision, which holds that
no person who was adopted after he
became an adult may legally claim as
an inheritance the property of his
foster parent Twenty-six decrees
of adoptions of adults have been en
tered in this country in the past year.
