Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 321: 1800 U.S. Census Record for Jonathan White in Westport, Mass.

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 1800 U.S. Census record for Jonathan White enumerated in Westport, Massachusetts:

The snippet for the Jonathan White household:

The extracted information from this record is:

*  one male over age 45 (certainly Jonathan)
*  one female over age 45 (probably wife Abigail)

The source citation for this record is:

1800 United States Federal Census, Bristol county, Massachusetts, population schedule, Westport, Page 625 (penned), Jonathan White household, digital image, ( : accessed 30 June 2016); citing National Archives Microfilm Publication M32, Roll 19.

Unfortunately, this record is a near-alphabetical listing of the town inhabitants, rather than a listing of inhabitants in some order that might indicate neighbors.  There were quite a few White families in Westport, and most of them were probably related.

Jonathan White (1732-1804) and Abigail (Wing) White (1734-1806) are my 5th great-grandparents.  I am descended through their son, Humphrey White (1757-1814) who married Sibel Kirby (1764-1848).
