Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 230: 1851 Canada West Census Record for Mulford Putman Household
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 1851 Canada West Census record for my 4th great-grandparents, John and Sarah (Martin) Putman in Middleton district, Norfolk County, Canada West:

The source citation for this record is:
Census of 1851, Norfolk County, Canada West, District 25, Subdistrict 225, Middleton township, Page 5 (stamped), Lines 2 to 9, Mulford M. Putman household; digital image, Library and Archives Canada (http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/census/1851/Pages/1851.aspx : accessed 10 March 2013); Library and Archives Canada Microfilm C-11741.
This is an excellent three-generation census record - the parents of Mulford Putman (not my ancestor), Mulford Martin and his wife, and the children of Mulford and Elizabeth Putman. John and Sarah Putman were born in New Jersey, Mulford was born in New York, and the children were born in Upper Canada (now Ontario).
John and Sarah (Martin) Putman are my 4th great-grandparents. I am descended through their daughter, Elizabeth (Putman) Sovereen (1820-1895), who married Alexander Sovereen (1814-1907) in 1840 in Norfolk county, Ontario.
