Shared note

In the 1880 US Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson County Indiana, John H. Canary, a 55-year-old farmer has in his household his wife (Mary J Vandivier Canary, age 58 and keeping house), his son (Milo R Canary, a 17-year-old farm laborer) his father-in-law (James Vandivier, a 79-year-old farmer) and his niece Anna E McCaslin, age 13 and working in the family. I havent been able to locate Annas parents, but her sister, Viola Naoma McCaslin, is living with another aunt, Nancy Vandivier Green.
