Shared note

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 23 Dec 1899, Byford E Long, the Clerk of Jackson County Circuit Court, Brownstown, Jackson, Indiana, issued a marriage license to Claud [sic] McCasland and Nancy Rude [sic]. They were married on 24 Dec 1899 by James J Spall, Minister of the Gospel, who filed the return on 19 Jan 1900.

In the 1900 US Federal Census for Vernon, Jackson, Indiana, 25-year-old Indiana-born farmer Claude and his 15-year-old Indiana-born wife Nancy [Rhude] McCaslin have been married six months and have had no children. In their household is Nancy's 32-year-old Indiana-born single sister Emma McCaslin [should be Rhude], who has one child who is living, and her son who is recorded as Nancy's 1-year-old nephew Raymond Rude [Rhude]. Claude is farming rented land. All the adults can read, write and speak English. Everyone's parents were born in Indiana.

In the 1910 US Federal Census for Marion [transcribed as Mitchell] Ward 1, Lawence, Indiana, 35-year-old year old Indiana-born Claude and his 25-year-old Indiana-born wife Nancy [Rhude] McCasland have either been married for 12 years (Claude's information) or eight years (Nancy's information). Neither is correct as they have been married 10 years. They have had five children but only three are living, 7-year-old Arnold, 5-year-old Charles and 3-year-old Leland. All the children were born in Indiana and none of them are attending school. The family is living in a rented house on East Brook Street. Claude is working as a laborer in a stone quarry.

On 12 Sep 1918, when 32-year-old [sic, he is 42] Cladious [sic] Elvin McCasland registers for the WWI draft, he is living at 513 South 5th, Mitchell, Lawrence, Indiana. His date of birth has been changed from 30 November 1875 to 30 November 1885 by writing over the 7 with an 8. He is a locomotive engineer in a quarry for the LPC Co. in Mitchell, Lawrence, Indiana. His nearest relative is his wife Mary Josephine McCasland who also is living at 513 South 5th, Mitchell, Lawrence, Indiana. His description is medium height and build with grey eyes and brown hair. He signed "Claudius Elvin", correcting the spelling mistake of the registrar.

In the 1920 US Federal Census for Marion [transcribed as Mitchell] Ward 2, Lawrence, Indiana, 45-year-old Indiana-born Claud [Claude] McCasland has in his household his second wife, 35-year-old Indiana-born J Mary [Mary Josephine Montgomery Scales], her son 17-year-old Arthur Scales [last name listed as McCaslin] and Claude's children by his first wife Nancy Rhude, 17-year-old Arnold, 15-year-old Charles and 12-year-old Paul [Leland]. Charles and Paul attended school in the past year. Everyone was born in Indiana. All their parents were born in Indiana. The family is living in a rented house at 609 Lehigh Street. Claude is a teamster for a lumber mill. Arnold and Arthur are "general" laborers.

In the 1930 US Federal Census for Mitchell, Marion, Lawrence, Indiana, 54-year-old Indiana-born Claude McCasland has married 53-year-old Ida McLaine Terry Moffett. This is a third marriage for both of them. Claude was married for the first time at age 25. Ida was married for the first time at age 17. In their household are Ida's son 17-year-old Indiana-born Homer Terry and her granddaughter, 3-year 2-month old Indiana-born Detora [I do not know who her parents are, but her father was born in Indiana and her mother in Pennsylvania]. Claude, Ida and Homer are literate. Claude is a laborer in a quarry, and worked on the last regularly scheduled work day. No one else in the family has employment. Claude is not a veteran of WWI. The family is living in a rented hour at 324 Warren Street, for which they pay $8.50 a month. They do not have a radio.

Bohalls: The McCasland graves are on the outside of the fence [around the Bedel Cemetery] on the north side, marked on the inside of the fence by a limestone marker.
