Shared note

In the 1870 US Federal Census for Vernon, Jackson, Indiana, 42-year-old Kentucky-born farmer James P Vance owns $700 worth of personal property, but no land. The $2,500-worth of land is owned by his 40-year-old Indiana-born wife, Elizabeth Kinnear McCasland Vance, who inherited on her husband George William McCaslands death and who still controls it. James and Elizabeth have in their household, their 1-year-old Indiana-born daughter Katy B and Elizabeths children by George W McCasland, 18-year-old Levi, 16-year-old Thadeus, 11-year-old George W and 9-year-old Mary. The childrens last name is recorded as McCaslin.

In the 1880 US Federal Census for Vernon, Jackson, Indiana, 53-year-old Indiana-born farmer James P and his 50-year-old Indiana-born wife Elizabeth [Kinnear McCasland] Vance have in their household their Indiana-born daughters, 12-year-old Katy and 6-year-old Estella, Elizabeths daughter 17-year-old Indiana-born Mary A McCasland, and Elizabeths 5-year-old Indiana-born grandson Claudius S. Claudius is the son of Thadeus and Mary A [McConnell] McCasland. Mary has died and Thaddeus has moved to Minnesota with a new wife, leaving his first born son with his mother. Kate has attended school in the past year. James parents were born in Kentucky. Elizabeths parents were born in Indiana.

On 11 Mar 1919, Mrs. Kate Gasaway, of 220 S Walnut St., Seymour, Indiana, received a letter describing what the government would pay toward her mother Elizabeth Ann Kinnear McCaslin Vance's last expenses.

Kate divorced John Melville Gasaway in May 1922 and married Alamander Brooks on 13 Jun 1923. "Indiana, Marriages, 1811-1959," index and images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/VZQR-NRC : accessed 10 Apr 2013), Alamander Brooks and Cathern Gasaway, 1923.
