Shared note

In the 1860 US Federal Census for Vernon, Jackson, Indiana (Post Office Retreat), 27-year-old miller Rich [Richard] McCasland has real estate worth $1,600 and personal property worth $250. He and his 21-year-old wife M. Ellen [Matilda Ellen Wilson] have in their household their daughters, 2-year-old Alice [Mary Alice] and 6-month old R. Catherine [Rachel Catherine], and 10-year-old Alabama Hudson, whose relationship to the family is not known. Will McCasland, who may be Richards nephew William A McCaslin, is living next door with the John M Miller family. Will runs the engine for the mill.

Matilda Emily Wilson McCasland died 16 January 1862 aged 26 years 4 months 3 days, exactly one month before her baby son Franklin, born 10 September 1861, died 16 February 1862. Both are buried in Grassy Cemetery, Vernon, Jackson, Indiana.
