Shared note
In the 1830 US Federal Census for Lancaster, Jefferson, Indiana, Samuel Hemphill has in his household two males under five (William and John W) two males between 5 and 10 (Joseph and James H), one male between 30 and 40 (himself), one female under 5 (Nancy J) and one female 30 to 40 (his wife Mary McCaslin). The Hemphills are living near Mary's uncle John McCasland [McCaslin] and her aunt Charlotte King Snodgrass. In the 1840 US Federal Census for Township not stated, Johnson, Indiana, Samuel has in his household one male under 5 (Samuel), one male 5 & under 10 (William), one male 10 & under 15 (John W), two males 15 & under 20 (James H and Joseph), one male 40 & under 50 (himself), one female under 5 (Louisa), two females 5 & under 10 (Elizabeth A and Amanda), one female 10 & under 15 (Nancy), and one female 30 & under 40 (his wife, Mary McCaslin Hemphill). On 18 June 1846 Josph Hemphill "joined for duty and enrolled" in Capt. Allen's Co., 3 Reg't Indiana Inf. (Mexican War) at New Albany, Indiana, as a Private for a period of 12 months. Twenty-two-year-old Joseph was mustered out at New Orleans, Louisiana on 24 June 1847. He had last been paid to 28 February 1846 and was owed $42.00 "for clothing in kind or money". He owed the Army $3.49 for one pair wool pants, one pair socks and one cap. From the History of Johnson County, Indiana, 1888, by D.D. Banta: Mexican War Johnson County shared the glory which attended the United States arms in that brief and brilliant campaign, in the land of the Montezumas. When war was declared against Mexico, the people of this county were among the foremost to offer a company for that service. Concerning this company the Franklin Examiner of June 23, 1846, has the following: For the satisfaction of their friends we give the roll of volunteers this county as it stood when they left this place. We understand there were some names entered at Edinburg, after the company started, which are not on this list: Officer--David Allen, captain; David, first lieutenant; Elza Matthews, second lieutenant; Samuel, John D. Tilson, Alpheus Lay and Joseph Tilson, sergeants; Jacob Coon, F.M. Fain, Simon Hubble and James Jameison, corporals. Privates--Washington Wilson, James Parr, Peter Miller, Lawrence Lowe, Stephen A. Glasburn, James Henderson, Peter Glasburn, Daniel Copffelt, Charles Green, Jacob Kephart, John Kelley, Ephraim Donnovan, William Steele, Samuel H. Tetrick, T. Walden, J.W. Parkhurst, Greenville Miller, James Miller, Ambrose Armstrong, John Armstrong, James Allen, Samuel Rapp, John McLean, Hume Sturgeon, Harvey McCaslin, Adam Hopper, Jesse Heffin, George Dawson, Aaron Richardson, William Burkhart, John Ogle, John Slater, William Fisher, Frederick Aubke, W.H. Nelson, John Kephart, Charles Griffin, Cyrus Keneaster, Sylvester Nation, Peter T. Yarborough, Peter Lane, William Allen, R.K. tailor, William Rivers, H.W. Webb, William H. Scrogham, Pleasant Cole, Joseph Hemphill, Frederick Cooper, George Duckworth, Lafayette Matthews, S.T. Featherngill, James Orchard, W.W. Israel, James Green, Benjamin Parr, Jonathan Williams, Lemont Morgan, Alexander Cooper, Christian F. Vaught, William Dawson, Woodward Worrel, Samuel S. Crosby, John L. Coons, Alexander Roberts, William Peggs, William H. Allen, Andrew Moore, John Low, Lewis H. Shively, William Nance, Jefferson Etchison, John Ferguson, Jacob Merryman This company went into camp at New Albany, the place of rendezvous. It was assigned to the Third Regiment of the Indiana Volunteers, and early in July, started by boat for the seat of war. It shared the vicissitudes of war, and lost a considerable number through death and sickness. Capt. Allen was among those who died. John Armstrong was killed in battle at Buena Vista, and six others of the company wounded. J. Slater was chosen captain to succeed Allen, and Harvey McCaslin, second lieutenant. The company lost in all about fifteen by death, nearly all of which was caused by disease. On their return home, in August, 1847, the people of the whole county turned out to welcome them. It was reported as one of the largest meetings that had ever been held in the county up to that time. A free dinner was served to all present, after which an address of welcome was delivered by Mr. Gabriel M. Overstreet, which was responded to by Capt. Slater, on behalf of the company. Col. Joseph Lane, who was in command of the Third Regiment, was called upon, and spoke for more than an hour. He reviewed the movements of the regiment in the field, and was cheered heartily. Transcribed by Cheryl Zufall Parker On 21 July 1847, Joseph Hemphill applied for his bounty land due him from his service in the Mexican War and was "admitted for" 160 acres (Certificate 4591). The land he received was in Plattsburg, Missouri and he proceded to sell it on 15 April 1848 "for value received" to Alexander McAlpin, who, on 13 October 1848, sold it to Adam Terhune. In the 1850 US Federal Census for Pleasant, Johnson, Indiana, Joseph, a 26-year-old Indiana-born farmer with no property of value, and his 18-year-old Delaware-born wife, Sarah Ann [Friker] Hemphill, are living next door to his father and mother, Samuel and Mary [McCaslin] Hemphill and six of his brothers and sisters. They have been married "within the year". In the 1860 US Federal Census for Clark, Johnson, Indiana, 30-year-old [sic] Indiana-born farmer Joseph and his 25-year-old Germany-born [sic] wife Sara [Friker] Hemphill have in their household 12-year-old David, 10-year-old Hannah, 8-year-old Jane, 6-year-old Augusta, 4-year-old Savana and 2-year-old Elizabeth. In the 1870 US Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, Joseph, a 46-year-old farmer, and his 38-year-old wife, Sarah A [Friker] Hemphill, have a passel of children in their family; 17-year-old Nancy J, 16-year-old Louisa A, 13-year-old Sorena, 12-year-old Sarah, 10-year-old Josephine, 7-year-old John S, 6-year-old William, and 1-year-old Itura [?].
