The former was born in Wythe County, VA, about 1767, and his death occurred in Johnson County, IN, December 17 1850; the latter was born in Pennsylvania about 1777, and died May 18, 1841. The subject of this biographical sketch came to Johnson County in 1829 and settled on the farm where he now resides. He attended school in the old log schoolhouse, which stood near the Presbyterian Church of Franklin. By occupation M.r McCaslin is a farmer and owns a valuable farm. He was united in marriage November 5, 1840, to Miss Margaret Ditmars, a native of Somerset County, N. J., born October 3, 1820, daughter of Garrett and Sarah (Verbryck) Ditmars. Mr. and Mrs. McCaslin have had five children, two of whom yet live, namely: William 0., born 1851 and Harriet D., 1855. He has been a member of the Presbyterian Church for fifty years, and for forty years has been an elder, and for forty-eight years his wife has been a member of the same church. Politically, he was formerly a whig, but is now a republican, and cast his first vote for William H. Harrison." Transcribed by Lois Johnson.
