Shared note
In the 1830 US Federal Census for Lawrence, Jefferson, Indiana, David McCasland [sic] has in his household two males of 20 under 30 years [himself and an unknown, possibly one of his brothers], one female under five [unknown daughter] and one female of 20 under 30 years [his wife Rachel Largent McCaslin]. Also on this page are Rachel's father, Melson Largent, and her brother, William Largent. It was an almost unimaginably long journey from Lawrence, Jefferson County, Indiana to Mountain, Crawford County, Arkansas, approximately 600 miles, probably took three to four months at a rate of five to ten miles a day with no travel on Sunday. I wonder what drove them to make it, possibly David's brothers Richard and Hugh wrote accounts of the area. In the 1840 US Federal Census for Mountain, Crawford, Arkansas, David McCaslin has in his household two males 5 and under 10 years [James and John Wesley], one male 30 but under 40 (himself), two females under 5 years [Mary Ann and Winnie], two females 5 but under 10 [unknown], and one female 20 but under 30 (his wife Rachel Largent McCaslin). David's information is recorded on the same page as that of his brother Richard. In the 1850 US Federal Census for Jasper, Crawford, Arkansas, 45-year-old farmer David M and his 42-year-old wife Rachel [sic Rachell C Largent] McCaslin have in their household their Indiana-born sons 18-year-old James and 16-year-old John and their Arkansas-born children, 14-year-old Mary Ann, 12-year-old Winnie [Nancy], 10-year-old Amanda, 6-year-old Andrew J, 6-year-old George W, and 3-year-old William. The birth place of David and Rachell is recorded as unknown. Rachell is illiterate. James and John have attended school in the past year. In the 1860 US Federal Census for Cedar Creek, Crawford, Arkansas, 52-year Kentucky-born farm laborer David McCaslin owns $360 worth of personal property and $350 worth of real estate. He and his 59-year-old Kentucky-born [sic] wife Rachel [Largent] McCaslin have in their household their Arkansas-born children, 22-year-old Winney [sic], 17-year-old [sic] Amanda, 14-year-old twins, Geo [sic] W and Andrew J, and 12-year-old William. Amanda, George, Andrew and William have attended school in the past year. In the 1870 US Federal Census for Cedar Creek, Crawford, Arkansas, 58-year Kentucky-born farm laborer David McCaslin owns $300 worth of personal property but no land. He and his 68-year-old Tennessee-born wife Rachel [Largent] McCaslin are living next door to two of their sons, 22-year-old Arkansas-born A J [Andrew Jackson] and 38-year-old Indiana-born John and their families. Andrew Jackson McCaslin is a farm laborer with $300 of personal property, but no land of value. He and his 21-year-old Missouri-born wife R A [Ruby Ann Henretta Lewis] McCaslin have in their household their one-year-old Arkansas-born son David E. John McCaslin is a farm laborer with $300 worth of personal property, but no land of value. He and his 35-year-old Missouri-born wife M L [Mary Cradduck] McCaslin have in their household their Arkansas-born children, 16-year-old J P [Joseph P], 14-year-old M L [Martha Lucinda], 10-year-old Henry [William Henry], 8-year-old S J [Serilda Jane], 6-year-old J W [John Wesley], 4 year old Sintha [Cyntha A], and one-year-old S A [Sarah Melvina]. In the 1880 US Federal Census for Jasper, Crawford, Arkansas, 47-year-old Indiana-born farmer James and his 46-year-old Missouri-born wife Sarah [Lewis] McCaslin [transcribed McCarlin] have in their household James' 80-year-old Kentucky-born [sic] widowed mother Rachel [sic] [Largent] McCaslin and 23-year-old Arkansas-born housekeeper Malinda Tune. Rachel and Malinda cannot read and write. James' father was born in Indiana and his mother in North Carolina; Sarah's parents were born in Tennessee; Rachel's parents were born in Kentucky; Malinda's parents were born in Arkansas. Rachell's tombstone in the Morrison Cemetery, Rudy, Crawford, Arkansas reads, "Rachell C McCaslin Born 1801 Died Nov. 1880 Aged 79 Yrs A member of The Methodist Church".
