Shared note

In the 1830 US Federal Census for Nineveh, Johnson, Indiana, Alexander has one male under five (John), one male between 20 and 30 (himself), one female under 5 (Sarah) and one female between 20 and 30 (his wife, Elizabeth). He is living next door to his father-in-law, Samuel Sellers, written as Cellers by the census taker.

In the 1840 US Federal Census for Township not stated, Johnson County, Indiana, Alexanders last name is written as McAslin. In his household are one male between 5 and 10 (Allen), one male between 10 and 15 (John), one male between 30 and 40 (himself), one female under 5 (Elizabeth), one female between 5 and 10 (Emeline), one female between 10 and 15 (Sarah), and one female between 30 and 40 (his wife, Elizabeth)

In the 1850 US Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, 49-year-old Alexanders household consists of his wife, Elizabeth Sellers McCaslin (age 47), his sons, John (age 24) and Allen (age 19), and his daughters, Sarah (age 21), Emeline (age 14) and Mary (age 8). His daughter Elizabeth who should be 12 years old on this census, is missing and may have died. Alexander, John and Allen are all listed as farmers and Alexander has property worth $6,600, the highest value on this page. His brother James is living six farms away, close enough so that their census information is recorded on the same page.

In the 1860 US Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, 59-year-old Alexander is still a farmer with real estate worth $5,600 and personal property worth $3,000. In his household are his wife Elizabeth Sellers McCaslin (age 57), and his daughters, Emily (age 22) and Mary (age 19). His son, Allen has a farm near that of his father as their information is recorded on the same page of the census.

Judge Banta gives her death as occuring in Sept 1860 but this does not agree with her tombstone in Greenlawn Cemetery, Franklin, Johnson, Indiana. which has her date of death as 24 Aug 1862 Elizabeth was a sister of Nelson Sellers, Abigail Sellers Parkhurst and Sarah Sellers Trapp.
