Shared note

In the 1830 US Federal Census for Township Not Stated, Scott County, Indiana, Richard has in his houshold one male under 5 (Calvin S), one male between 20 and 30 (himself), one female under 5 (Margaret Jane), and one female between 20 and 30 (his wife, Lucy). This information is recorded on the same page as that of his brother, James, and GaraDavis who was involved in all three indentures with the McCaslins on 22 Oct 1824. Garas wife was Esther McCaslin, Johns widow who was Richards and James brother.

In the 1840 US Federal Census for Township Not Stated, Scott County, Indiana, Richards name is recorded as Richd McCastlin by the census taker, Els. English, assistant for Scott County. Richards household consists of one male between 5 and 10 (John R), two males between 10 and 15 (James W and Calvin S), one male between 30 and 40 (himself), one female under 5 (Elizabeth), two females between 5 and 10 (unidentified), one female between 10 and 15 (Margaret Jane) and one female between 30 and 40 (his wife, Lucy)

In the 1850 US Federal Census for Jennings, Scott, Indiana, Richard is not listed and is dead. He died sometime before 27 Feb 1844, when Stephen Rice brought relinquishment of right of next of kin by Lucy McCaslin, widow of the deceased. Stephen Rice was granted adminstration of the estate. Security was given by Reuben Rice. Stephen and Reuben are probably Lucys brothers. Lucy (age 44) is now the head of the McCaslin household, with personal property worth $1,000. Living with her are her sons, Calvin S (age 21 and a laborer with $100 of personal property), James W (age 20 and a farmer), John R (age 19), and Alexander (age 7) and her daughter Elizabeth (age 10).

In the 1860 US Federal Census for Vienna, Scott, Indiana, 49-year-old Lorenzo D Whitson, and his 54-year-old 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 [Elizabeth should be 20, not 25].

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.

Lucy Rice McCaslin Whitson born 14 Jun 1806 in Otsego County, New York, died 26 Mar 1877 in Scott County, Indiana and was buried in New Frankfort Cemetery, Scottsburg, Scott, Indiana (Find A Grave Memorial# 45416906). Some sources state July 5 1876 (Age: 70) but the stone seems to say Mar 26 1877 although it was very hard to read.
