Shared note

The 1840 US Federal Census for Township not stated, Johnson County, Indiana, shows that James McCaslin has moved to join his brothers, David and Alexander. His brother, Richard is still living in Scott County. In James household are one male under 5 (John C), one male between 5 and 10 (James W), one male between 40 and 50 (himself), one female under 5 (Louisa should be in the next category - the census taker has crossed out 2 in that category and added one to this), one female between 5 and 10 (Elizabeth), one female between 10 and 15 (Mary Ann), one female between 15 and 20 (Margaret) and one female between 30 and 40 (his wife, Elizabeth Carr McCaslin). One person (James) is employed in agriculture.

The 1850 Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, lists the names of James and Elizabeths children and a granddaughter who are living in their household. They are Margaret McCaslin Stewart (age 24), Mary Ann (age 22), Elizabeth (age 19), Louisa (age 18), James W (age 16), John C (age 11), Lucy E (age 10), David (age 8) and Florence C Stewart (Margarets daughter, age 8 months). Although James W is listed as a farmer at age 16, he has been attending school along with his brothers, John and David, and sister, Lucy. James farm is near his brother Alexanders farm as their information is recorded on the same census page. James has property worth $2,000.

On 8 Mar 1854, Samuel McCaslin Carr married Elizabeth McCaslin in Johnson County, Indiana. This is a double first cousin marriage.

From the History of Cass County, Indiana; Physicians, p 605: "Dr. Samuel Carr. Some time in the fifties there was an erratic doctor by name of Carr, who lived on a farm east of Lincoln. He was an herb doctor, gathered his remedies in the woods and manufactured his own medicines and did quite a business for several years. He sold out about 1860 and moved to Nebraska. He was married and had several children."

In the 1870 US Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, 40-year-old Indiana-born Elizabeth [McCaslin] Carr is keeping house for two of her Indiana-born children, 7-year-old Maggie [Margaret Ann] and 3-year-old Mary [Mary Jane]. Elizabeth's 4-year-old daughter Hattie [Harriet] is living with her aunt Mary McCaslin Morgan. Living next door to Elizabeth is another of her sisters, Louisa J McCaslin Crowell, Louisa's husband 40-year-old New Jersey-born William B Crowell and their Indiana-born children, 5-year-old Alice J [sic] and 3-year-old Effie J. William is a cooper with $4,500 worth of real estate and $600 worth of personal property.

Elizabeth [McCaslin] Carr died 19 Mar 1877, according to the Family Bible Record for Samuel and Elizabeth Carr.
