Shared note

In the the 1870 US Federal Census for Marion, Jennings, Indiana, 39-year-old farmer Moses Briges [Bridges] has $1,500 worth of real estate and $500 of personal property. He can read but not write. He and his 27-year-old wife (a second marriage for both of them) have a blended household of his children, 16-year-old Shelby (who works on the farm), 13-year-old Charles, 11-year-old Benjamin, 7-year-old Willie, and 3-year-old Thomas Bridges, her step-daughters, 13-year-old Alice [Mary Alice] and 11-year-old Cassey [Rachel Catherine] McCaslin and her children 5-year-old Ella and 3-year-old John McCaslin. Shelby, Charles, Benjamin, Cassey and Ella have all attended school in the past year.

Forty eight-year-old farmer Moses Bridges was difficult to find In the 1880 US Federal Census for Marion, Jennings, Indiana, as his entry was listed under the name of Maser Briges, a combination of a transcription and a spelling error. He and his second wife, 44-year-old Sarah E have a combined household of his, hers and their children. Moses children by his first wife Melina are 23-year-old Charles, 21-year-old Benjamin, 15-year-old William and 12-year-old Thomas, mistakenly identified as Moses stepson by the census taker. Sarahs children by Richard McCaslin are 15-year-old Louella and 12-year-old John D McCaslin. Moses and Sarahs children are 8-year-old Jacob and 4-year-old Adelbert.

In the 1900 US Federal Census for Marion, Jennings, Indiana, 33-year-old Indiana-born single farmer John D McCasland [sic] is a lodger in the household of 69-year-old Ohio-born widowed farmer Marth [sic Martha] J [Rust] Deputy and her single daughter, 25-year-old Indiana-born Addie Deputy. Martha was married 41 years and has borne eight children, but only five are living. Both Martha and John own their farms free of mortgage. Martha's father was born in Maryland and her mother in New York; Addie's father was born in Virginia and her mother in Ohio; John's parents were born in Kentucky [sic].

On 29 Dec 1905, John D McCaslin marries Addie Deputy in Bloomington, McLean, Illinois. His parents are Richard McCaslin and Sarah Cox. Her parents are Sylvester Deputy and Martha I Rust.

From The Republican, North Vernon, Jennings, Indiana, December 2, 1909 page 2:


Burglars

The residence of John McCaslin on Gum Street was visited by burglars on last Saturday night. It is supposed they raised a window on the first floor, which was not fastened, affording them easy access to the inside. They rifled the pockets of Mr. McCaslin's trousers to the extent of $11. The trousers were found next morning on the front porch. Police have no clew. [sic]
