Shared note
Mentioned in his greatgrandfather George King's will as grandson of "Jane deceased". In the 1860 US Federal Census for Jordan, Jasper, Indiana, Cornelius is living in the household of John W Brooks, a 44-year-old farmer with real estate worth $500 and personal property worth $400. John is married to George Franklin McCaslin's widow Alminda McCasland (age 34) and they have a blended household of his children, 8-year-old Benjamin F, and 7-year-old Mary E Brooks, and her children, 8-year-old Cornelius and 7-year-old Mary E McCaslin.. In the 1870 US Federal Census for Jordan, Jasper, Indiana, 44-year-old Almanda [McCasland McCaslin] Brooks is head of household with $750 in real estate and $225 in personal property. In her household are her children by George F McCaslin, 19-year-old farmer Cornelius McCaslin (recorded as McCastin) who has $400 worth of personal property, 17- year old Mary E McCaslin (recorded as McCastin) who has $400 worth of personal property, and her children by John W Brooks, 9-year-old John Wesly, 7-year-old Rachel A, and 2-year-old William D. John W Sr is missing and presumably died between 1868 and 1870. Aliminda's farm is close to that of Stearns F Iliff and his wife, Eleanor Hutton Iliff. Eleanor is George F McCaslin's half sister. In the 1880 US Federal Census for Jordan, Jasper, Indiana, Cornelius McCashlin [sic], a 28-year-old farmer is boarding with the Lewis Roberts family in the vicity of the Reids who neighbors on the preceding census. This census says that Almanda was born in Ireland, which does not agree with Almanda's earlier statements on the 1860 and 1870 census which state Indiana as her birthplace.
