Floyd/Opal Noble children - late 1940's adoption

Am seeking to communicate with anyone who may remember a court case in the late 1940's in Carthage, IL where children were removed from the custody of their parents, Floyd and Opal Noble and offered for adoption. Judge Gorby would have presided over the case and they were living on the Walter Worrell farm at the time this happened. I do know the children attended Powellton school and that their schoolteacher was Eula Pilkington (I spoke with her beore she died). Later, in the 1960's there were 4 more children removed from the home. All of these children, so far as we know there were, have been found and reunited. I am a grandchild of Floyd and Opal Noble and am trying to piece together their story and would appreciate communicating with anyone with knowledge of the case in the community. Also, there was one child, Walter Wayne Noble who drowned in a creek in 1952 while a foster child of Miss Ida Jackson. Anyone out there who knew him as a child or recalls that incident? Thank you.
