Howard County Adoptions/Guardianships 1800s

Do indexes to adoptions/guardianships for Howard County about 1830-1850 exist? I would appreciate any guidance.

I recently found an adoption listed in an ancestors biography.
William G. LEE b. about 1828
His father died soon after coming to Howard Co. MO from Kentucky and William G. LEE was adopted by a "Mr. WAITE".

I don't have a date for the adoption but assume that it was between 1828 and 1846 when William served in the Mexican War. He married Elizabeth FUGITT daughter of Braxton C. Fugitt and Mariah Swope in 1848, Howard Co. MO. and then they went to California.

They are buried in Tulare Co., CA. I'm searching for William's family....

Thanks very much,
Carley Worth
