Shared note
I cannot find Leigh McCaslin on the 1920 US Federal Census but, by 1921, he had married Helen Edmundson and they had moved to Garden City, Finney, Kansas where their son Leigh Spires McCaslin was born on 8 Jan 1921. The 1930 US Federal Census for Tulsa, Tulsa, Oklahoma records 34-year-old, Kansas-born Leigh S McCaslin, his 34-year-old, Kansas-born wife Helen [Edmonton] McCaslin and their sons, 9-year-old, Kansas-born Leigh [Jr] and 3-year-old, Oklahoma-born Jack. The family is living at 2250 S St Louis Ave, which Leigh owns, worth $25,000. They own a radio. Leigh and Helen were married when both were 24-years-old. Both Leigh S and Helen are literte and speak English. Leigh Jr has attended school in the past year, but Jack has not. Leigh S is a contractor and owns a paving company. He worked on the last regularly scheduled work day. Leigh S is a veteran of WWI. Leigh S's father was born in Indiana and his mother in Illinois. Helen's father was born in Ohio and her mother in Pennsylvania. The childrens' parents were born in Kansas. Sixteen-year-old Leigh Spires McCaslin Jr is living at 2250 South St Louis, Tulsa, Tulsa, Oklahoma and working for Consolidated Construction Company, Box 1455, Tulsa, Tulsa, Oklahoma when he applies for his Social Security Number on 13 Mar 1937. He states that he was born 8 Jan 1921 in Garden City, Finney, Kansas and that his parents are Leigh Spires McCaslin and Helen Benton Edmondson. In the 1940 US Federal Census for Tulsa, Tulsa, Oklahoma, 44-year-old, Kansas-born Leigh S McCaslin and his 44-year-old, Kansas-born wife Helen [Edmonton] McCaslin have in their household their sons, 19-year-old, Kansas-born Leigh [Jr] and 13-year-old, Oklahoma-born Jack. The family is living in a rented hour at 2447 E Third, for which Leigh S pays $50 a month in rent. The family was living in the same place in 1935. Leigh Jr is absent and presumably away at college. Leigh S and Helen have completed high school, Leigh Jr has completed one year of college and Jack has completed seventh grade. Leigh S is self-employed as a seller of fire and theft insurance, has worked 72 hours in the past week and 52 weeks of the past year. He does not earn a salary as he is the owner of the business. Helen is a housewife who is not looking for work. Leigh Jr is a student who has worked as a retain drug salesman ten weeks of the past year, earning $150. No one has an outside source of income.
