Shared note

In the 1900 US Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, 44-year-old farmer James B Luyster [transcribed Luyeter] owns the land he farms free of mortgage. He and his 45-year-old wife, Hattie D [Harriet Ditmars McCaslin] have been married 22 years and have had five children. All five are living with them: 21-year-old Jessie, 17-year-old Homer B, 15-year-old Gilbert, 14-year-old Hattie and 6-year-old John T. Homer, Hattie and John have attended school seven months of the past year but Gilbert has not.

In the 1910 US Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, 25-year-old Indiana-born Gilbert A [transcribed Albert A] and his 25-year-old Indiana-born wife Grace E [Mullendore] Luyster have been married four years, but have had no children. Gilbert is doing general farming on land he owns, but with a mortgage, on Township Line Road. Both Gilbert and Grace can read, write and speak English. Their parents were born in Indiana.

When 34-year-old Gilbert Allen Luyster registers for the WWI draft on 12 Sep 1918, he states that his permanent address is R.R.4, Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, that he was born 6 May 1884, that he is white, and a native born citizen. He is self employed as a farmer at R.R.4 Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, and his nearest relative is his wife, Grace E. Luyster of the same address. His description is medium height and build, with blue eyes and light hair. He has no physical disabilities which would disqualify him from military service.
