In the 1870 US Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, John McCaslin (recorded as McCoslin) is a 45-year-old farmer with real estate worth $8,560 and personal property worth $2895. He and his 42-year-old wife Martha have in their household their children, 18-year-old George, 13-year-old Robert N and 3-year-old Martha B, and an 18-year-old "domestic servant" Mary E Turman. The McCaslins are no longer living next door to the Alexanders. I'm not sure which family moved. In the 1880 US Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, 54-year-old John McCaslin's farm is five farmsteads away from that of his cousin, David A McCaslin (David Wason McCaslin's son). John and his 50-year-old wife Martha J have in their household their children, 24-year-old Robert N, 13-year-old Martha B, 9-year-old John A and 5-year-old William and a hired man, 21-year-old Levi Glover. John and Martha's oldest son, 28-year-old Indiana-born George and his 24-year-old Indiana-born wife Luna M [List] McCaslinhave the farmstead next door. In the 1900 US Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, 74-year-old Indiana-born John McCaslin is living with his 33-year-old Indiana-born daughter Martha B and a hired man, 16-year-old Indiana-born Herbert Borwell. In the farmsteads next to his are his sons and their wives, 25-year-old William and 23-year-old Hattie N McCaslin, and 29-year-old John and 28-year-old Lella N McCaslin.
