Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 216: 1840 U.S. Census Record for William Knapp Household in Newton, N.J.

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 U.S. Census record for William Knapp (1775-1856) in Newton, Sussex County, New Jersey:

The entry for William Knapp:

The enumeration of William Knapp included this information;

*  1 male age 15 to 19 years [Manning Knapp, born 1825]
*  1 male age 60 to 69 years [William Knapp, born 1775]
*  1 female age 5 to 9 years [Elsie Knapp, born 1831]
*  1 female age 15 to 19 years [no obvious Knapp child candidate; perhaps Sarah Knapp, born 1818? Or a not previously known daughter; or an unknown household guest or servant]
*  1 female age 50 to 59 years [Sarah Knapp, born 1785]

The source citation for this record is:

1840 United States Federal Census, Sussex County, New Jersey, population schedule, Newton township; Page 54, William Knapp household, online database, ( : accessed 29 October 2011); citing National Archives Microfilm Publication M704, Roll 260.

William Knapp (1775-1856) and Sarah (Cutter) Knapp (1785-1878) are my third great-grandparents.  I descend through their daughter Sarah (Knapp) Auble (1818-after 1900), who married David Auble (1817-1894) in 1844.
