Shared note
In the 1850 US Federal Census for Franklin Township, Johnson County, Indiana, Robert Jeffery, a 56-year-old tanner with $5,000 of property, born in Pennsylvania, has in his household his wife, Sarah [Price Carson] Jeffery (age 38, born in Kentucky) and his children, John (age 16, laborer), Mary Ursula (age 14), and 12-year-old twins, Thomas and Robert Jeffery. All of these children were born in Pennsylvania. In his household are also two children who are his step-children, Mary Jane Carson (age 16, born in Kentucky) and James Carson (age 3, born in Indiana). This is a "blended family" with the Jeffery children being Robert's and the Carson children being Sarah's by an earlier marriage. The facts that confirm this statement are the birthplaces of the children. All the Jefferys were born in Pennsylvania, where Robert originated, while the Carson children were born in Kentucky and Indiana, where Sarah is known to have been. Also the 1860 has James Carson living with Sarah, therefore presumably his mother, after her marriage to Hervey McCaslin. In the 1860 US Federal Census for Franklin Township, Johnson County, Hervey McCaslin (spelled Harvey by the census taker) is a prosperous 57-year-old farmer with real estate worth $7,000 and personal property worth $3,200. In his household are his second wife, Sarah P[rice Carson Jeffery] McCaslin (age 47), his sons by his first wife Mildred, Joseph B (age 21) and George (age 18), his son by Sarah, Hervey (age 7), Sarah's son, James Carson (age 12) and Ellen Jackson, a 16-year-old domestic. Joseph and George are listed as farmers who each have $3,000 worth of real estate and $500 worth of personal property.
