John McCaslin & Henry Rustin sell property together in Randolph Co. NC in 1813; they appear to be co-owners. There is a John McCaslin & a John McCaslin, Jr. on the 1820 census of Williamson Co., TN, living closeby to Henry Rustin.

John McCaslin, Jr. purchased a 100 acre tract in Williamson Co. TN, on the West Harpeth River, on Aug. 1, 1826, adjoining the 70 acre tract of John McCaslin, Sr. Henry Rustin also has a land entry on this date in Williamson Co. (These are recording dates. Land appears to have been purchased before 1820.)

Jim Bray ( posted a messaged to GenForum 01 March 1999 which states: "The McCaslins I am related to came out of Randolph County, NC. My three times great grandfather, William Bray's wife, Rebecca "Bettie" McCaslin, had a brother, Younger McCaslin. The Brays and McCaslins began moving west to Tennessee in about 1815, settling first in Williamson Co., TN, near Franklin, and then moved to Hickman Co., TN in about 1825. In 1829, the Brays and McCaslins moved to Bond County, IL, where many of the McCaslins stayed or took up residence in surrounding counties...My Brays eventually moved to Grant County, WI, where both William and Bettie McCaslin Bray died in the 1850's. Younger McCaslin went to Salt Lake City and was living there with his daughter Lydia during the 1850 census. There is very little information about the McCaslins of Randolph and the adjoining county, Chatham, in North Carolina. There might be some court records althought you'd have to visit the libraries there to scan through the microfilm."
