In the 1820 US Federal Census for Washington County, Kentucky, Robert McCaslin has in his household 3 males under 10 [Hugh is one of them], one male 10 to 16 [David], one male 16 to 18 [William], one male 16 to 26 [Richard], one male over 45 [himself], one female under 10 [Margaret], 3 females 16 to 26 [one is Mary], one female 26 to 45 [unknown], and one female over 45 [his wife Nancy Snodgrass McCaslin].

Also on this page are Rachel's father, Melson Largent, and her brother, William Largent.

It was an almost unimaginably long journey from Lawrence, Jefferson County, Indiana to Mountain, Crawford County, Arkansas, approximately 600 miles, probably took three to four months at a rate of five to ten miles a day with no travel on Sunday. I wonder what drove them to make it, possibly David's brothers Richard and Hugh wrote accounts of the area.

Amanda, George, Andrew and William have attended school in the past year.

He and his 68-year-old Tennessee-born wife Rachel [Largent] McCaslin are living next door to two of their sons, 22-year-old Arkansas-born A J [Andrew Jackson] and 38-year-old Indiana-born John and their families. Andrew Jackson McCaslin is a farm laborer with $300 of personal property, but no land of value.
