Shared note

In the 1920 US Federal Census for Pine View, Elbert, Colorado, 38-year-old Indiana-born Herbert D McCaslin is a cattle farmer who owns the acreage of his ranch. He and his wife, 35-year-old Texas-born Nancy [Noble] McCaslin, have two living Colorado-born children, 5-year-old Lois and 9-month old Mary. Herber's parents were born in Indiana, Nancy's in Texas and the children's father was born in Indiana and their mother in texas. A third child Edith Nancy was almost two-years old at the time of her death in 1918. A fourth child was born before Herbert's death in 1925.

In the 1930 US Federal Census for Canyon, Randall, Texas, 46-year-old Nancy is a widow, running a boarding house at 304 24th Street,even though no boarders are listed on the census. Nancy owns the house, valued at $2500, which is near the West Texas State Teachers College, a source for boarders. She had been married for 16 years when her husband, Herbert Ditmars McCaslin died. In her household are her daughters, 15-year-old Lois B, 11-year-old Mary E and 6-year-old Elizabeth. Edgar H Noble and his family are living around the corner at 2302 2nd Avenue, but I have not found a relationship between Nancy and Edgar.
