Who was the first juvenile tried as an adult?

Shirley, NY |

Hello. I'm writing my term paper on juvenile justice. I need to know who was the first juvenile charged as an adult during or after 1899. Or even the name of the court case would be helpful. I'm not willing to pay any money for an answer. I'm 17 years old trying to do my homework. I would ask my two cousins who are lawyers but they're at a funeral. I would appreciate if you could help. Thank you.
