Looking for court order and/or newspaper articles admitting Pearl Layton to the Wisconsin Industrial School for Boys in Waukesha, Wis. approx 1900. He is listed on 1900 Census as "Inmate --- 12 yrs old". Orrin Pearl Layton was the son of George W. Layton and Emma Congdon Payne (residents of Racine). He is NOT listed on the 1900 Census with parents and siblings. On 1910 Census he appears as Pearl Layton with wife Edna and parents George and Emma. On 1920 Census, he appears as Orvin Layton with wife Anna. I am aware that no official records exist for inmates at the Wis Industrial School for Boys prior to 1906 in Wis state archives. Any help in locating the above documents or other information to "connect the dots" most welcome.
