Shared note
In the 1830 US Federal Census for Lancaster, Jefferson, Indiana, Richard McAslon [McCaslin] has in his household two males under five years of age [Richard Thomas Henry and John Finley C], two males of five and under 10 [George Seaton and William David], one male of 15 and under 20 [James G], and one male of thirty and under forty [himself], one female of five and under ten [Esther Shilladay], three females of ten and under fifteen [Eliza Jane, Elizabeth Ann and Lucy Gaines] and one female of thrity and under forty [his wife Nancy Sledd McCaslin]. In the 1840 US Federal Census for Lancaster, Jefferson, Indiana, Richard McAslin [McCaslin] has in his household one male between 5 and 10 years [Harvey Strawther], two males between 10 and 15 years [John Finley C, Richard Thomas Henry], two males between 15 and 20 years [William David, George Seaton], one male between 40 to 50 years [himself], two females under 5 years [Minerva Catherine, Nancy Caroline], one females between 15 to 20 years [Esther Shilladay], two females between 20 to 30 [Eliza Jane, and Elizabeth Ann. Lucy Gaines has married William J McClelland in 1839] and one between 40 and 50 years [Nancy Sledd McCaslin]. In the 1850 US Federal Census for Lancaster, Jefferson, Indiana, 56-year-old farmer Richard McCasland [McCaslin] owns $5,400 worth of property. He and his 55-year-old wife Nancy [Sledd] have in their household their children, 33-year-old Eliza J, 28-year-old Esther, 25-year-old cooper David, 24-year-old cooper Richard, 20-year-old cooper John, 18-year-old farmer Harvey, 14-year-old Caroline, 13-year-old Minerva, and 10-year-old Marie, and 17-year-old cooper James Newkirk (relationship to the McCaslins is unknown). Harvey, Caroline, Minerva and Maria have all attended school in the past year. Eliza and Esther were born in Kentucky and David and the younger children were born in Indiana, which would indicate that the family moved to Indiana after 1822 but before 1825. On his death on 17 May 1863, Richard left a legacy of $70 apiece to his children, James, Elizabeth [Eliza Jane], George, Lucy, Esther F [sic], John, David [William David], Thomas [Richard Thomas Henry], Strawder [sic Harvey Strawther], Nancy, Maria [Mariah] and Elizabeth A. This was taxed at 1% as an excise tax in August of 1864 by the Federal Government. In the 1870 US Federal Census for Zif, Wayne, Illinois, 88-year-old [sic, should be 48 years old] Indiana-born farmer Peter W Rhodes [Rhoads] owns $1,900 worth of real estate and $300 worth of personal property. He and his 48-year-old Kentucky-born wife Esther [McCaslin] Rhodes [Rhoads] have in their household their Indiana-born children, 16-year-old Thomas, 14-year-old Nancy, 13-year-old Luella and 6-year-old Emma. Emma's birth place indicates that the Rhodes family moved to Illinois between 1864 and 13 June 1870. In the 1880 US Federal Census for Zif, Wayne, Illinois, 58-year-old Indiana-born farmer Peter W and his 58-year-old Kentucky-born wife Easter S [Esther Shilladay McCaslin] Rhoads have in their household their Indiana-born children, 25- year old Thomas H, 22-year-old Luella (keeping house), and 16-year-old Emma J. Every one can read and write except Thomas who is recorded as being crippled. Peter's father was born in Pennsylvania and his mother in Virginia, Esther's parents were born in Kentucky. Esther Mccaslin Rhoads death date is recorded in the Wayne County, Illinois Courthouse. She died 21 Jan 1888, aged 66 years 3 months 4 days.
