In two recent decisions of the Supreme Court of Missouri, Drake v. Milton Hospital Association and Lindsley v. Patterson, some of the problems arising in connection with the position of illegitimate and adopted children have been discussed. This study will deal with the various kinds of status of children in Missouri law, the condition under which each may come into existence, and the rights of inheritance which flow from each of them.
