Shared note
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. William Matt Adelhelm, born 15 Jul 1862, died 5 Mar 1930 and was buried in Holdenville Cemetery, Holdenville, Hughes, Oklahoma. (Find A Grave Memorial# 37508784)
