Shared note
In the 1850 US Federal Census for Liberty, Fulton, Indiana, 33-year-old Kentucky-born farmer Joseph H McCaslin has $300 worth of real estate. He and his 32-year-old Kentucky-born wife Ann [Shepherd] have in their household their Indiana-born children, 14-year-old Samuel, 11-year-old Nancy, 9-year-old Martha, 7-year-old Rhoda, 5-year-old Henry, 3-year-old Elizabeth, and 10-month old Mary E. In the 1860 US Federal Census for Vernon, Jackson, Indiana, Henry McCasland is a farm laborer, living in the household of 25-year-old, Indiana-born Henry I Hutton and and his 23-year-old, Indiana-born wife, M E [maiden name unknown] Hutton. Their household also contains their one-year-old, Indiana-born daughter, Herster B Hutton, 15-year-old Ezra Blanchard, 18-year-old, Indiana-born farm laborer Almond McCasland [sic he is Almond William Hutton] and 21-year-old, Ohio-born ambrotypist, Blanchard Chapman. The census taker, besides making a mistake in recording Almond's last name, has also assigned the same household number (1041) to both the Huttons and the next entry for the William Bias household. 27th Indiana Volunteer Regiment-Soldier Killed by Friendly Fire - Letter for sale by TenRebGirl.com on 5 Jan 2015.
