Info on adoptions of Earl, Omar, Lula Mae & Pearl Arbuckle

Hello out there I need some help!

I hope someone out there has some information on the Jesse Arbuckle(b. abt 1877 IN) married to Louisa Knapp (b.1870 IN). I believe my Grandmother was Lula Mae Arbuckle of Bartholomew County, Indiana. Daughter of Jesse Arbuckle and Louisa Knapp. They had four Children. Earl (b.1893), Omar (b.1896), Lula Mae (b.1902), and Pearl (b.1904). Louisa Knapp Arbuckle died in 1905 and we know that the two girls were put into the Frances Comfort Thomas Home for Orphans in Bartholomew County, Indiana. Not sure where the boys went. Jesse remarried and I believe had more children. He committed bigomy and ended up in prison. William and Anna Davis adopted my Grandmother "Lula Mae Arbuckle" but she was taken away from them in 1908. We can't locate the Davis adoption papers to solidify that the Lula Mae Arbuckle tied to this family was the same child the Davis' adopted and who was my Grandmother. We are almost 100% sure it's her but need to find a connection somewhere of Jesse and Louisa Arbuckle to William and Anna Davis. Both Jesse Arbuckle and William Davis were from Bartholomew County,IN. Does anyone out there have information on this family or the adoptions?
