Shared note

In the 1870 US Federal Census for Lancaster, Jefferson, Indiana, 27-year-old Kentucky-born farm laborer Samuel Austin has no real estate of value, but has $250 worth of personal property. He and his 23-year-old Indiana-born wife Harriet [Shepherd] Austin have in their household their Indiana-born children, 4-year-old William and 7-month old, December-born Harvey. Samuel has the right to vote as a male citizen of more than 21 years.

In the 1880 US Federal Census for Vernon, Jennings, Indiana, 36-year-old Kentucky-born farmer Samuel and his 33-year-old Indiana-born wife Harriet [Shepherd] Austin have in their household their Indiana-born children, 13-year-old farm laborer William, 6-year-old Nora and 2-year-old Josephine. Harvey is missing from the family and may be presumed to have died. William and Nora have attended school in the past year. Samuel's father was born in Kentucky and his mother in South Carolina. Harriet's parents were born in Indiana.

In the 1900 US Federal Census for Vernon, Jennings, Indiana, 53-year-old Indiana-born widow Harriet C [Shepherd] Austin is Head of Household. She has no occupation listed but she owns her home free of mortgage. She has borne one child and one is living. [This is not correct, she has borne at least five children, and one (Harvey) is known to have died, and her oldest son William is living next door to her]. In Harriet's household are her 19-year-old Indiana-born daughter Nellie M, and her father 75-year-old Indiana-born widower, William G Shepherd. William G's father is now recorded as being born in North Carolina and his mother in Kentucky. Harriet's parents were both born in Indiana, and Nellie's father was born in Kentucky and her mother in Indiana. Living next door to Harriet is her son 33-year-old Indiana-born farmer William S and his 33-year-old Indiana-born wife Jenny H [Spaulding] Austin. William S and Jenny H have been married 8 years and have had two children, both are living. They are 6-year-old Indiana-born Florence J and 9-month old Indiana-born Ralph. Florence has attended school six months of the past year. William owns his farm free of mortgage. All the adults are literate.
