Shared note
In the 1880 US Federal Census for Johnson, Oregon, Missouri, 43-year-old Indiana Territory-born farmer William and his 34-year-old Missouri-born second wife Nancy [McNatt Pruitt Goodman Martin] McCaslin have five Missouri-born children in their household all with the last name of McCaslin. Two of them are the children of William and Nancy, 3-year-old [sic the number four has been written over] Charles and 4-month old William. 15-year-old George and 12-year-old Adeline [sic] are Nancy's step-children and their last name is Goodman. Their father was George Goodman and their mother Mary Sutherland. Eight-year-old Sarah McCaslin may be the daughter of William and Barbara Nordin, William's first wife. She is not William and Nancy's child. William's father was born in Kentucky and his mother in Missouri. Nancy's parents were born in Tennessee. The birth place of the children's father is given as Indian Territory and their mother's birthplace as Missouri, which is only correct for the youngest two.
