Treasure Chest Thursday - 1850 U.S. Census Record for Jonathan Oatley Family

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 Jonathan Oatley (one of my 3rd great-grandfathers) in Killingly, Windham County, Connecticut:

The Jonathan Oatley household:

The extracted information for the Jonathan Oatley household, enumerated on 19 September 1850:

*  Jonathan Oatley - age 59, male, a Stone Cutter, born So. Kingston RI
*  Amey Oatley - age 52, female, born So. Kingston RI
*  Olive F. Oatley - age 14, female, born Killingly Ct

The source citation for this household is:

1850 United States Federal Census, Windham County, Connecticut, population schedule, Killingly town, Page 358, dwelling #548, family #601, Jonathan Oatley household, digital image, (; citing National Archives Microfilm Publication M432, Roll 51.

I don't see any age or birthplace errors in this enumeration.

Jonathan and Amy (Champlin) Oatley had 13 children, and 12 of them survived childhood.  A son, Joseph Oatley, appears on this census page two families below Jonathan Oatley, with his wife Cynthia, and three of their children.
