Treasure Chest Thursday - 1850 U.S. Census Record for David Auble Famikly

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 my Auble great-great-grandparents and their family in Newark, Essex County, New Jersey:

The David Auble family entry:

The extracted information for the family, residing in the West Ward of Newark City, taken on 3 August 1850, is:

*   Daniel Auble -- age 32, male, white, Boot & Shoe man, born N. Jersey
*  Sarah Auble -- age 30, female, white, born N. Jersey 
*  William Auble -- age 5, male, white, born N. Jersey, attended school
*  Francis Auble -- age 3, female, white, born N. Jersey
*  Charles Auble -- age 1, male, white, born N. Jersey

The source citation for this census entry is:

1850 United States Federal Census, Union County, New Jersey, population schedule, West Ward, Newark; Page 363 (stamped verso), Dwelling #580, Family #826, David Auble household; digital image, ( : accessed 29 October 2011); citing National Archives Microfilm Publication M432, Roll 448.

I don't see any significant errors in this census record.

As I've pointed out in other census records for this family, Charles Auble's age in the 1850 census reflects his 1849 birth date, as did the 1860 census (age 11), 1870 census (age 21) and 1880 census (age 30).  In the 1900 census (age 35), 1910 census (age 55), his 1898 marriage record (age 34) and his 1916 death record (age 61), he lied about his age, apparently for vanity reasons (When he married he was age 49, and his wife was 30).
