Shared note

In the 1840 US Federal Census for Lancaster, Jefferson, Indiana, Richard McAslin [McCaslin] has in his household one male between 5 and 10 years [Harvey Strawther], two males between 10 and 15 years [John Finley C, Richard Thomas Henry], two males between 15 and 20 years [William David, George Seaton], one male between 40 to 50 years [himself], two females under 5 years [Minerva Catherine, Nancy Caroline], one females between 15 to 20 years [Esther Shilladay], two females between 20 to 30 [Eliza Jane, and Elizabeth Ann. Lucy Gaines has married William J McClelland in 1839] and one between 40 and 50 years [Nancy Sledd McCaslin].

In the 1850 US Federal Census for Lancaster, Jefferson, Indiana, 56-year-old farmer Richard McCasland [McCaslin] owns $5,400 worth of property. He and his 55-year-old wife Nancy [Sledd] have in their household their children, 33-year-old Eliza J, 28-year-old Esther, 25-year-old cooper David, 24-year-old cooper Richard, 20-year-old cooper John, 18-year-old farmer Harvey, 14-year-old Caroline, 13-year-old Minerva, and 10-year-old Marie, and 17-year-old cooper James Newkirk (relationship to the McCaslins is unknown). Harvey, Caroline, Minerva and Maria have all attended school in the past year. Eliza and Esther were born in Kentucky and David and the younger children were born in Indiana, which would indicate that the family moved to Indiana after 1822 but before 1825.

In the 1860 US Federal Census for Lancaster, Jefferson, Indiana, 27-year-old Pennsylvania-born farmer Jacob Johnson owns $65 worth of personal property but has no land of value. He and his 21-year-old Indiana-born wife Manverva C [Minerva Catherine] were married within the year. They are living next door to Minervas parents, Richard and Nancy [Sledd] McCaslin.
