Shared note
James W's name is mistranscribed as James H on his marriage record. The 1840 US Federal Census for "Township not stated", Johnson County, Indiana, shows that James McCaslin (Sr) has moved to join his brothers, David and Alexander. His brother, Richard is still living in Scott County. In James' household are one male under 5 (John C), one male between 5 and 10 (James W), one male between 40 and 50 (himself), one female under 5 (Louisa should be in the next category - the census taker has crossed out "2" in that category and added one to this), one female between 5 and 10 (Elizabeth), one female between 10 and 15 (Mary Ann), one female between 15 and 20 (Margaret) and one female between 30 and 40 (his wife, Elizabeth Carr McCaslin). One person (James) is employed in agriculture. The 1850 Federal Census for Franklin Township, Johnson County, Indiana, lists the names of James' and Elizabeth's children and a granddaughter who are living in their household. They are Margaret McCaslin Stewart (age 24), Mary Ann (age 22), Elizabeth (age 19), Louisa (age 18), James W (age 16), John C (age 11), Lucy E (age 10), David (age 8) and Florence C Stewart (Margaret's daughter, age 8 months). Although James W is listed as a farmer at age 16, he has been attending school along with his brothers, John and David, and sister, Lucy. James' farm is near his brother Alexander's farm as their information is recorded on the same census page. James has property worth $2,000. In the 1860 US Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, James McCaslin is a 60-year-old farmer with $6,400 in real estate and $1,000 in personal property. In his household are his 55-year-old wife, Elizabeth, his sons, James W (age 24), John C (age 23) and David A (age 17) and his daughter, Lucy E (age 19). James W and John C's ages are not what would be expected from the 1850 census. Margaret, her daughter Florence, Mary Ann, Elizabeth and Louisa are no longer in James Sr's household. In the 1870 US Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, James W McCaslin is a 36-year-old gardener with $4,000 in real estate and $300 in personal property. He and his 28-year-old wife Lutitia (Vandivier) have two daughters, 5-year-old Viola N and 3-year-old Anna E. Also in their household is James' 15-year-old nephew, James W Carr, a day laborer James died in 1870 and was buried in Greenlawn Cemetery, Section Pine Row 21 Stone 11, Franklin, Johnson, Indiana (Find A Grave Memorial# 101615626).
