Shared note

From the History of Johnson County, Indiana 1888, Franklin City and Township by Judge D.D. Banta: Everett M. McCaslin, a native of Johnson County, Ind., was born February 24, 1855, and is the son of Wosson and Jane S. (Winchester) McCaslin. The subject of this biography grew to manhood upon the farm, and received a common school education at the Hopewell Academy. In 1876, he began farming for himself in Osage County, where he remained four years, and then returned to this county and, in 1886, settled where he now resides. The marriage of Mr. McCaslin occurred September 6, 1876, to Miss Belle Ditmars, daughter of Cornelius and Catherine (Banta) Ditmars. Mrs. McCaslin was born in Franklin Township, September 6, 1855. To the above marriage two children were born: Herbert D., born March 8, 1882, and Caroline, April 30, 1886. In politics, Mr. McCaslin is an ardent republican, and cast his first presidential vote for R. B. Hayes. He and wife are members of the Hopewell Presbyterian Church, of which he is an elder. Mr. McCaslin is a leading young farmer, industrious, and a liberal supporter of all laudable public enterprises. Transcribed by Lois Johnson

In the 1860 US Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, Wosson (misspelled again) is a farmer with land worth $5460 and personal property worth $3000. Wossons household consists of himself (age 33), his wife, Jane S (age 31), his sons David S (age 7), Everett M (age 5) and John W (age 7 months) and his daughter, Mary J (age 3). David and Everett are attending school. Wosson is living near his parents as their census information is on the bottom of the preceding census page.His father is household 524 and Wosson is 529

In the 1870 US Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, Wosson (misspelled Wasson) is still living very near his father and mothers household as their census information is on the same page. In Wossons household is his wife, Jane S [Winchester] (42), his sons, David S (16), Everett (14), John H (10) and his daughters, Josephine (12), Florence (8), Laura (6). They also have a domestic servant, Ellen James aged 17. Wosson has real estate valued as $15,000 and personal property valued at $3,000. He can read and write as can his wife.

The census confirms the information given in The History of Johnson County. In 1880 Everett was a farmer in Burlingame, Osage County, Kansas, but he returned to Indiana before 1900 as the 1900 and 1910 censuses record his presence in Franklin Township, Johnson County, Indiana. He then apparently saw greener pastures in Louisville, Boulder, Colorado because, sometime between the date of the 1910 census and the 1920 census he moved there to become a fruit farmer.

In the 1900 US Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, 45-year-old Indiana-born farmer Everett M and his 45-year-old Indiana-born wife Mary B [Ditmars] McCaslin have been married for 23 years and have had two children, both are living. These Indiana-born children are 18-year-old Herbert D and 14-year-old Caroline. Also in this household is 19-year-old , Indiana-born servant Josephine Shepherd. Herbert and Caroline have attended school 7 months of the past year. Everyone in the household can read, write and speak English. Everyone's parents were born in Indiana.

in the 1910 US Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson Indiana, 55-year-old Indiana-born Everett M McCaslin and his 54-year-old Indiana-born wife Belle [Mary Belle Ditmars] have been married 33 years. Belle has born two children and both are living. However only one of the children is living with them, 23-year-old Indiana-born Carolyn. Everett is doing general farming on land he owns free of mortgage. Carolyn is a high school teacher. Everyone is literate and speaks English. Everett's and Carolyn's parents were born in Indiana; Belle's father was born in New Jersey and her mother in Ohio.

Who are Making Their Success in the West. .We found Mr. and Mrs. Everett McCaslin most pleasantly located at Boulder. They had a splendidly stocked small fruit farm about a mile out of Boulder. Their daugh- ter, Mrs. W. E. Thurston, lives in Boulder where Mr. Thurston is en- gaged in real estate business and their son, Herbert McCaslin, has a large, finely equipped stock ranch. Mr. McCaslin and his family are all en- thusiasts regarding Colorado, where they have done so well, and its cli- mate.

Everett died just before the 1930 census, taken 19 Apr 1930, as Belle is listed as a widow.

EVERETT McKEE McCASLIN 1855-1930 Everett McKee McCaslin was born three miles southwest of Franklin, Indiana, February 24, 1855. His Parents, Wason [sic, Wosson] and Jane (Winchester) McCaslin, were the children of two of the pioneer families of this county. Mr. McCaslin availed himself of the splendid opportunities offered in the Hopewell Academy for his early education. Like many others who attended this school, he used the training received there for a foundation upon which to build a life and character of usefulness wherever he was found. He was united in marriage to Belle Ditmars September 6th, 1876. Two children were born, Herbert and Carolyn. Herbert went on to be with the Lord five years ago, leaving a wife and three children. Carolyn and her husband, and two children reside in Shelbyville, Indiana. At the age of 14, Mr. McCaslin was received into the Hopewell Presbyterian church upon his confession of faith in Jesus Christ, God's Son as his personal Savior and Lord. This step thus taken has borne precious fruit in many localities and many lives. At about the age of thirty he was ordained a ruling elder in the Hopewell Presbyterian church. He will be remembered by many as a teacher of the Bible. As an ambassador of his absent Lord his work on earth is done. Now with Herbert and multitudes of others he knew, he is absent from the body and at home with his Lord, waiting that glad morning when his soul and spirit shall be brought back to be united with the new body like unto that of the Lord. When Christ who is our life shall appear then shall we also be manifested in glory. Col. 3:4. Although Mr. McCaslin has been gone from Hopewell almost twenty years, he is remembered by those of the older generation as one of the most useful and talented men of the church. As a Bible teacher he left the impress of his personality as well as the truth of the great Book he expounded upon the lives of many. His early life was a real part of this community as was the life of his fathers before him. His marriage to Miss Belle Ditmars united two of the pioneer families, which were already united in a common ideal of Christian life and service. The homor and respect the church felt for Mr. McCaslin was expressed in his election to the eldership of the church whem he was a young man and then after a temporary absence, his re-elcetion on his return. Some years after his son, Herbert, had gone to Colorado, the parents removed from Indiana to be near him and since then have lived in the west, near Boulder. For the last two years Mr. McCaslin has been ill from arterio sclerosis. Last fall he and Mrs. McCaslin came to Shelbyville to the home of their daughter, Mrs. Eden Thurston, where, after increasing weakness, he passed away Saturday evening, April 5th. In addition to the widow and daughter, Mr. McCaslin is survived by five grandchildren, a son and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thurston, and three daughters of Herbert McCaslin. Mrs. Nancy McCaslin, widow of Herbert, lives in Canon City, Texas. He is also survived by two brothers and two sisters. The brothers are John H. McCaslin, of California, and Rev. Ezra McCaslin, of Detroit. The sisters are Mrs. Josie Smith, of California, and Mrs. Laura Scafe, of Detroit. The funeral services were held at the Hopewell church Tuesday afternoon, April 8th, in chage of Dr. L. O. Richmond, of Shelbyville, and Mr. Ferguson. The interment was in the Mauseleaum in the Hopewell cemetery.
