I found the following census information in the soundex on Lawson Cornelius Caplinger and Martha "Dicey" Fite Caplinger:

1900 Newton Co, MO, Marion Township, Enumeration district 107, sheet 18, line 93:
Cornelius Caplinger, Oct 1856, 43 OH
Dicy Caplinger, wife, Feb 1856, 44, TN
Jennie Caplinger, dau, Oct 1881, 18, MO
Lizzie Caplinger, dau, Aug 1883, 16, MO
Anie Caplinger, dau, Mar 1885, 15, MO
Elmer Caplinger, son, Nov 1887, 12, MO
Charley Caplinger, son, Apr 1892, 8, MO
Jesse Caplinger, son, Nov 1894, 6, MO
Lee Caplinger, son, Jun 1897, 3, MO

Also, in the census of Jasper Co, MO, Joplin Township, enumeration district 45, sheet 8, line 4, I found:
Lawson Caplinger, Oct 1856, 43, OH
enumerated with Julia Reniker

Did Lawson Corneilius Caplinger work in Joplin Township, Jasper Co, MO during the week and return home on weekends?

I also found this family in the 1910 Census of Newton Co, MO, Marion Township, enumeration district 074, sheet 0126, line 0391:
Lawson C Caplinger, 53 OH
Dicie Caplinger, wife, 54, TN
Elmer Caplinger, son, 22, MO
Charley Caplinger, son, 18, MO
Jessie Caplinger, son, 15, MO
Lee Caplinger, son, 13, MO

Do you know the spouses of the three older girls (Annie, Lizzie and Jennie)? Also, is Lizzie the same person as the Mary you mentioned in one of your notes?

I would be willing to swap information with you. Please let me know if you would be willing to swap. You may view the first 5 generations of my Fite database at:
