Shared note
In the 1860 US Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, 43-year-old John McCaslin is a prosperous farmer with $7,000 worth of real estate and $1,500 worth of personal property. He and his 29-year-old wife Martha (Alexander) McCaslin have in their household their children, 8-year-old Indiana-born George A, 4-year-old Indiana-born Robert N, and a child not listed in D.D. Banta's "History of Johnson County Indiana 1888", 1-year-old Indiana-born Emily J. The McCaslins are living next door to Martha's brother Thomas H Alexander, John's sister Sarah (McCaslin) Alexander and their family. In the McCaslin household is 22-year-old Indiana-born farm laborer Stephen B Alexander, another of Martha's brothers. Three of the children, Emily, Morekey McKey and Ollaver Morton, died between April and July 1865. I wonder what disease killed them, probably cholora morbis (dysentery); it must have been traumatic for the parents. The next child, Martha, survived to adulthood.
