Shared note
If Jennie Tuttle McCaslin's age is accurate on the 1900 US Federal Census, she married John Wesley McCaslin at about age 13. The following narrative is from an email by Jennie Tuttle's great granddaughter, Cathy Records, who descends through Jennie's second husband William Adelhelm. It concerns the death and burial of John Wesley McCaslin, Jr., Jennie's first husband. My knowledge of Jennie's marriage to John Wesley McCaslin is very limited as I am related to her via the second marriage to William "Will" Matt Adelhelm. However, I do know from my great aunt, Tina Adelhelm Rawlins, that John died from pneumonia in or around 1893. Jennie was probably pregnant with her last daughter by John, Nettie, who was born in 1894. I would assume that he was buried in Indian Territory, Oklahoma (specifically, the area north of Holdenville, Hughes County Oklahoma - Pecan Grove) as that is where Jennie and her children received land from the US government. Jennie's parents were buried in that area but am told that the farmer who farmed the land, plowed over the graves and discarded the stones in a fence row how sad! It's entirely possible that Jennie buried John near her parents. In the 1900 US Federal Census for Township 7, Creek Nation, Indian Territory, 32-year-old Indian Territory-born farmer Jennie [Tuttle] McCaslin is a widow with five children all born in Indian Territory. These children are 13-year-old Minnie M, 10-year-old Nettie, 8-year-old Myrtle, and 6-year-old Jessey [sic] McCaslin and 1-year-old Bellezoria [sic] McRay [said to be born out of wedlock]. Also in this household is boarder 42-year-old Maine-born widower Charley Jones who is a farm laborer and probably Jennie's hired hand. Jennie owns the land she is farming free of mortgage. Jennie and Charley have had no months out of work in the past year. Minnie, Nettie, and Myrtle have attended school five months of the past year. Jennie, Minnie, Nettie, Myrtle and Charley can read, write and speak English. Jennie's father was born in Kansas and her mother in Alabama, the children's fathers were born in Arkansas and their mother in Indian Territory, and Charley's parents were born in Maine. Jennie and her children's "tribe" is listed as Creek, her father and the children's fathers as American, and her mother and the children's mother as Creek. In the column for "Mixed Blood", Jennie's proportion of "white blood" is listed as one half, her children's as three quarters. Charley is non-Indian. Jennie is not taxed and she lives in a "fixed dwelling". In the 1910 US Federal Census for Jacobs, Hughes, Oklahoma, 49-year-old Iowa-born William Adelhelm and his 38-year-old Oklahoma-born wife Jinnie [sic] [Tuttle McCaslin] Adelhelm have been married nine years. This is a first marriage for him, but a second for her. Jennie has born eight children and all eight are living. The Oklahoma-born children living with them are three of theirs, 7-year-old Christen [sic], 5-year-old Charles, and 2-year-old Tina, and two of Jennie's children, 16-year-old Jesse [sic] McCaslin {daughter of John Wesley McCaslin] and 11-year Zora McCaslin [Zora Belle McRay, daughter of an unknown McRay]. Christen has attended school in the past year. William, Jennie, Jessie and Zora are literate and speak English. William owns the farm, free of mortgage, on which he is doing general farming. William's parents were born in Iowa; Jennie's father was born in Kansas and her mother in Oklahoma; Christen, Charles and Tina's father was born in Iowa and their mother in Oklahoma; Jessie and Zora's father was born in Arkansas and their mother in Oklahoma. Special inquiries regarding Indians records that William is white, Jennie is 1/2 Indian and the children are 1/4 Indian. Jennie has been married twice and is not living in polygamy. Jennie, Jessie and Zora are taxed. William and Jennie are residing on "their own lands". Jennie first received an allotment in 1879, Christan and Charles in 1905, Jessie in 1899 and Zora in 1902. They are living in a "civilized dwelling." In the 1920 US Federal Census for Brown, Seminole, Oklahoma, 54-year-old Iowa-born farmer W M Adelhelm and his 50-year-old Oklahoma-born wife Jennie [Tuttle McCaslin] Adelhelm have in their household their Oklahoma-born children, 16-year-old Chester, 14-year-old Charles, 11-year-old Tina and 8-year-old Louis [sic]. None of the children are recorded as attending school in the past year. Everyone except Lewis can read and write. William owns the farm they are living on, but with a mortgage. William's parents were born in Iowa; Jennie's father was born in Kansas and her mother in Oklahoma; the children's father was born in Iowa and their mother in Oklahoma. Jennie and her second husband, Mr. Adelhelm A standard history of Oklahoma: an authentic narrative of its ..., Volume 5 By Joseph Bradfield Thoburn By the early death of his father W. M. Adelhelm was thrown upon his own resources and had only limited advantages in the way of an education. When most of his age were at home and in school he was accepting every legitimate means of earning his own livelihood, and constant industry has been the keynote of his success. Coming to the Creek Nation in 1901, Mr. Adelhelm has lived on his present place near Holdenville since his marriage. The farm comprises his wife's allotment of 160 acres, and in the last fifteen years it has been improved in many ways and rendered highly valuable as a stock farm. Mr. Adelhelm raises some registered and high grade horses and a number of cattle. The farm is 3% miles north of Holdenville. On February 22, Washington's birthday, 1902, Mr. Adelhelm married Jennie Tuttle. She was born on the farm where she now resides, a daughter of Chester and Betsy Tuttle. Her father was a white man, while her mother was a fullblood Creek. Both died in what is now Hughes County. Mrs. Adelhelm by her first marriage to John McCaslin had four children, namely: Mrs. Mary Harris of Henryetta; Mrs. Nettie Palmer of Yeager, Hughes County; Mrs. Myrtle Long of Seminole; and Mrs. Jessie McBride of Henryetta. To the union of Mr. and Mrs. Adelhelm have been born four children, named Chester, Charles, Tina and Louis. The two older were born in time to receive allotments of Indian lands, but the two younger were not sharers in that distribution. Mrs. Adelhelm is a member of the Free Will Baptist Church and she was educated in the Tallahassee Mission. In the 1930 US Federal Census for Dustin, Hughes, Oklahoma, 59-year old Olkahoma-born widow Jennie [Tuttle McCaslin] Adelhelm is head of a household containing her Oklahoma-born sons, 25-year-old farmer Charlie and 19-year-old Lewis Adelhelm. Charlie has worked on the last regularly scheduled work day and has not served in the military. Jennie owns the house they are living in and they have a radio. Everyone is Indian. All of their fathers were "mixed blood" and their mothers Creek. In the 1940 US Federal Census for Holdenville, Hughes, Oklahoma, 68-year-old widow Jenny [Tuttle McCaslin] Adlehelm (born in Indian Territory) is head and only member of a household at 32 Hickory Street. She owns the house, valued at $800. it is not on a farm. She was living there in 1935. Jennie has completed second grade. She is not employed and is not looking for work. She does have a source of outside income. Jennie M Tuttle Adelhelm died 13 Feb 1946 and was buried in Holdenville Cemetery, Holdenville, Hughes, Oklahoma (Find A Grave Memorial# 37508819).
