Treasure Chest Thursday - 1850 U.S. Census for Simon Wade in Killingly, Connecticut

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - time to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings.

The treasure today is the 1850 United States Census record for the Lawton Wade household in Killingly, Windham County, Connecticut:

The snippet showing the Lawton Wade family is:

The extracted information for the Lawton Wade household in Killingly, enumerated on 5 September 1850:

*  Lawton Wade - age 34, male, a machinist, $100 in real property, born foster, R.I.
*  Aleph Wade - age 37, female, born Killingly, Ct
*  Lewis Wade - age 16, male, born Killingly, Ct.
*  Lucy A. Wade - age 14, female, born Gloucester R.I.
*  Julia A. Wade - age 13, female, born Killingly, Ct.
*  Henry L. Wade - age 8, male, born Bendville R.I., attended school
*  Mary A. Wade - age 4, female, born Killingly, Ct., attended school.
*  Simon Wade - age 82, male, a laborer, born Foster, R.I.

The source citation for this census record is:

1850 United States Federal Census, Windham County, Connecticut, population schedule, Killingly town; Page 339, dwelling #279, family #313,  Lawton Wade household, digital image, ( : accessed 11 September 2013); citing National Archives Microfilm Publication M432, Roll 51.

The person in this household that I am really interested in is Simon Wade, Lawton Wade's father according to other derivative works.  He was not found in the 1840 and 1830 U.S. census records, but I knew that he died in 1857 in Killingly according to Killingly town records.  Simon is my 4th great-grandfather.

This census record does add new information to my database by providing the names of the children of Lawton and Aleph (Handel) Wade.
