""The Bound Out Mystery" ... determining the fate of illegitimate, orphaned, and neglected children in early America by Carolee Dunivan.
research into bound children has uncovered previously unknown, and
probably deliberately hidden information about her great grandfather.
Case studies documenying the use of the court system to indenture or
bind out children show the various differences in legal practices
from state to state. Depending on the state, and the individual local
authority, a child's fate would have been dealt with as a punitive measure
or charitable act. Legal documents often reveal the identity of the
masters and their motives for accepting bound children
only one Fort Myers and 90 million people are going to find it out."
These lines, spoken on March 25, 1914, were uttered by one of Fort
Myers' most well-known residents, Thomas Alva Edison.
