Shared note
In the 1870 US Federal Census for Upper, Crawford, Arkansas, 30-year-old [sic] Virginia-born farm laborer J K [Jacob K] and his 25-year-old [sic] Arkansas-born wife Spicy [sic] [McCaslin] Elkins have in their household their children, 12-year-old Arkansas-born Victory [sic], and 6-year-old Missouri-born [sic] Eveline[sic]. Spicey and Victory cannot read or write. Jacob owns $200 worth of real estate and $200 worth of personal property and is a male citizen of the US over 21 years of age. In the 1880 US Federal Census for Upper, Crawford, Arkansas, 42-year-old Virginia-born farmer Jacob and his 38-year-old Arkansas-born wife Spicey [McCaslin] Elkins have in their household their children, 15-year-old Evaline [Matilda Evaline], 14-year-old Elamer [sic Elmer] 8-year-old Alice, 6-year-old Jane, 4-year-old Hiram, 2-year-old Frank and 1-year-old Carissa. Evaline was born in Idaho [sic], Elmer in Oregon, Alice, Jane, Hiram and Carissa in Arkansas, but Frank in Missouri, which would indicate that Jacob and Spicey moved to Idaho before 1865, went to Oregon before 1866, returned to Arkansas by 1872, went to Missouri after 1876 and returned to Arkansas before 1879. Jacob's parents were born in Virginia, Spicey's father was born in Indiana and her mother in Arkansas, and the children's father was born in Virginia and their mother in Arkansas. On 21 Sep 1880, 19-year-old John V Land and 16-year-old Eveline Elkins, both of Crawford County, Arkansas, applied for a marriage license. They were married on 3 Oct 1880 by A J Nordin, Minister of the M.P. Church. Eveline Elkins Lane died on 24 Nov 1881 in Crawford County, Arkansas four days after the birth of her son, Mark Sherman Lane.
