Shared note
"Family Bible Records of Johnson County, Indiana", compiled by Bess Sellers, records that Newton McCaslin was born 16 Apr 1805, in Kentucky to David Wasson McCaslin and Esther Baker Shillideay. In the 1830 US Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, Newton McCaslin has in his household two little boys under five (David A and James W), himself aged 20-30 and his wife Martha Jane Wilson McCaslin aged 20-30. in 1830, Newton became a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Franklin, Johnson, Indiana. From Johnson County, Indiana Court Records, 1823-1853 (prepared by Holmes) Bk AA pg 6 George W King [Newton's cousin] was appointed administrator 18 Apr 1832 of the estate of Newton McCaslin, deceased. Widow, Martha, relinguished her right as Admiinistratrix. A list of personal property retained by the widow and a sale bill for the remainder was filed in Court. On application Harvey [Hervey] McCaslin was appointed administrator to replace George W King who had died, and final settlement was made in 1833. James Sheilds married Martha Ann Wilson McCaslin on 25 Mar 1835, so he decided that he should become his step-children's guardian. Jennings County Probate book 1 page 290-9 Feb 1836 On application of James Shields he is appointed Guardian for the protection of the persons and property of Janes McCaslon, David McCaslon and Robert McCaslon infant heirs of ( smugged may be Newton) McCaslon late of Jennings County deceased. Provided he enters into Bond with security to be approved of by this Court and now comes the said James Sheilds and files his Bond with William A. Bullock & Ezra F. Peabody as his securities which is approved of by the Court and ordered on file. Apparently James Sheilds application in Jennings County did not succeed as Hervey McCaslin is still guardian in the next court actions in Johnson county. From Johnson County, Indiana Court Records, 1823-1853 (prepared by Holmes) Book C, pg 29 Harvey [Hervey] McCaslin, guardian of James, David A and Robert N, minor heirs of Newton McCaslin, deceased petitioned the court to sell his wards' real estate in sect 15, Twp 12, Range 4. Their mother, Martha Ann, now the wife of James Shields relinquished her dower. Harvey did not think that this land could be successfully partitioned. Feb 9, 1847. BK C pg 457 Final settlement by Harvey [Hervey] McCaslin as guardian of the minor heirs of Newton McCaslin, deceased. Equal settlement went to James McCaslin and David McCaslin with the balance remaining in the hands of Harvey as guardian of Robert McCaslin. Martha, the widow of Newton, relinquished her dower in the real estate of minor heirs. Nov 11, 1850.
