In the 1860 US Federal Census for Vienna, Scott, Indiana, 49-year-old Lorenzo D Whitson, and his 54-year-old second wife, Lucy Rice McCaslin Whitson have a blended family of his children, 16-year-old William A Whitson, 14-year-old Thomas Whitson, 11-year-old Lewis J Whitson, 8-year-old Zebulon C Whitson and 5-year-old Jemima J Whitson, and her daughter, 25-year-old Elizabeth McCaslin. Lorenzo is a farmer with $1500 worth of real estate and $700 worth of personal property In the 1870 US Federal Census for Vienna, Scott, Indiana, 59-year-old L.D. Whitson seems to have had a reverse in fortune as he no longer has any real estate to value and has only $300 in personal property. He and his wife, 63-year-old Lucy have only his two youngest children, Zebulon (17-years old and a laborer) and Jemima (15-years old) in their household.
