Shared note
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. 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."
