Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 248: 1900 U.S. Census Record for Auble Family in Terre Haute, Indiana

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  1900 U.S. Census record for the Auble family in Terre Haute, Vigo County, Indiana:


The portion of the census page with the Auble family members:


The extracted information for the Auble family members, residing at 411 Chestnut Street):

*  Frances M. Auble - head of household, white, female, born Oct 1846, age 53, single, 0 children born, born New Jersey, father born New Jersey, mother born New Jersey, occupation: a school teacher, 0 months not employed, can read, can write, can speak English, owns a house free of mortgage.
*  Sarah G. Auble - mother, white, female, born Jan 1818, age 82, widowed, had 6 children, 5 living, born New Jersey, father born New York, mother born New Jersey, can read, can write, can speak English.
*  Catherine Auble - sister, white, female, born Oct 1851, age 48, single, had 0 children, born New Jersey, father born New Jersey, mother born New Jersey, can read, can write, can speak English.

The source citation for this record is:

1900 United States Federal Census, Population Schedule, Vigo County, Indiana, Terre Haute Ward 6, ED 112, Sheet 14B, Dwelling 269, Family 319, Frances M. Auble household; indexed database and digital image, Ancestry.com (http://www.ancestry.com : accessed 27 November 2013), citing National Archives Microfilm Publication T623, Roll 409.

This address is the same location that David and Sarah (Knapp) Auble resided in the 1880 U.S. census.  There are 13 of "roomers" in this household between the ages of 19 and 31, and all of their occupations are "student."  Apparently, they turned this house into a dormitory for students attending a local college.

This is the last record I have found for my 2nd great-grandmother, Sarah G. (Knapp) Auble.  I do not know her death date or death place, although I think it was probably in Terre Haute where her two daughters resided.
