Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 187: 1840 U.S. Census Record for Johnathan White 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 1840 United States Census record for Jonathan White in Killingly, Windham County, Connecticut (two images):

The Johnathan White household on the first image:

Information for the Johnathan White household includes:

*  1 male aged 10 to 15 years old (almost certainly son Albert, born in 1827)
*  1 male aged 15 to 20 years old (almost certainly son Henry, born in 1824)
*  1 male aged 30 to 40 years old (almost certainly Jonathan White, born in 1806)

*  1 female aged 0 to 5 years old (almost certainly daughter Harriet, born in 1836)
*  1 female aged 30 to 40 years old (almost certainly wife Miranda (Wade), born in 1804)

The information on the second image includes:

*  3 persons employed in agriculture

The source citation for this record is:

1840 United States Federal Census, Windham County, Connecticut, population schedule, Killingly town; Page 152 (stamped on second image), Jonathan White household; online database, ( : accessed 16 May 2013); citing National Archives Microfilm Publication M704, Roll 32.

I could have used the stamped number "4189" for this source citation, which is, apparently, for the specific page in a collection that contains the population schedule.  Note that the second image has a stamped number of "4190."

The information in this record is consistent with what I know about the family of Jonathan and Miranda (Wade) White.  

Interestingly, the indexing for this census record listed him as "Johnathan Ekite" and somebody has added the correct "Johnathan White" alternate name.
