    In 1870, Caleb is living in the household of James H McNatt, itappears.  However, Caleb is listed first in the household, though hehas no Real Estate or Personal Estate to report, while McNatt does.He is reported as a Huckster.  The word did not have such a negatveconnotation back then.  I note that James is a Merchant, so probablyCaleb worked for him as a salesman.
