Shared note
Wesley William McCaslin's Social Security Application and his California Death Index information give his mother's maiden name as Pryor. This cannot be correct as Pryor is Wesley's grandmother's maiden name. Mary Jane's maiden name was Atwell as recorded on his brother Willis Floyd McCaslin's Social Security number application. In the 1870 US Federal Census for Richwoods, Miller, Missouri, 27-year-old Kentucky-born farmer J B Atwell owns $400 of personal property but no land. He has in his household his Missouri-born daughters, 3-year-old Martha E and 8-month-old Mary J, whose information states that she was born in October. In the 1880 US Federal Census for Jasper, Taney, Missouri, 11-year-old Missouri-born Mary J Atwell is living with her maternal grandparents, 57-year old Tennessee-born Joshua Clevenger and 57-year-old Kentucky-born Mary [Davis] Clevenger. Also in this household is James' and Mary's 13-year-old Missouri-born son George W who has attended school in the past year. Joshua is literate, Mary Clevenger and Mary Atwell are not, George can read but not write. Joshua's parents were born in Virginia; Mary Clevenger's parents were born in Kentucky; George's father was born in Tennessee and his mother in Kentucky; Mary Atwell's parents were born in Missouri. In the 1900 US Federal Census for Mountain, Barry, Missouri, 24-year-old Missouri-born farmer John W and his 24-year-old Missouri-born wife Sarah H [maiden name unknown] McCasling have been married seven years and have had one child, who is dead. Living with them are John's father 67-year-old Indian Territory-born Robert McCasling and John's mother 61-year-old Missouri-born Francis [sic] [Pryor Hudson] McCasling who have been married 34 years. Francis is recorded as having had ten children from her two marriages, but only four are living [I can only account for five, the three Hudson children, and John and Thomas] John's household is recorded as living on a farm. Living next door in a house, is John's brother Thomas McCasling and his family. Thirty-two-year-old Missouri-born farm laborer Thomas and his 29-year-old Missouri-born wife Mary J [Atwell] McCasling have been married 13 years and have had five children, three are living. These three Missouri-born children are 12-year-old Lizzie, 8-year-old John W and 2-year-old Stellia. All the adults in these two households are illiterate although they all speak English. The only person who can read, write and speak English is Lizzie, who has attended school in the past year. Robert's father was born in Indiana and his mother in Tennessee, Francis' parents were born in North Carolina, John W and Thomas' parents (Robert and Francis' children) were born in Indian Territory and Missouri, respectively, and everyone else's parents were born in Missouri.
