Treasure Chest Tuesday - 1870 U.S. Census Record for E.A. McNew Household in Tuolumne, California

This week's Tuesday treasure is the 1870 United States Census record for the E.A. McNew household enumerated in Township #2, Tuolumne County, California:

The E.A. McNew household:

The extracted information for the E.A. McNew household:

*  E. A. McNew - age 34, male, white, a miner, $1000 in real property, $100 in personal property, born Maryland, eligible to vote
*  Jane McNew - age 23, female, white, keeping house, born Australia, parents of foreign birth.
*  A.J. McNew - age 3, male, white, at home, born California, mother of foreign birth

*  A.R. McNew - age 2, female, white, born California, mother of foreign birth

The source citation for this record is:

1870 United States Federal Census, Tuolumne County, California, Population Schedule, Township #2, Page 354 (penned), dwelling #1352, family #607, E.A. McNew household, indexed database with digital images, Ancestry.com (http://www.ancestry.com : accessed 26 July 2009); citing National Archives Microfilm Publication M593, Roll 93.

This is the growing Elijah Pickrell and Jane (Whittle) McKnew family.  The two children are Alfred Rodney McKnew and Allethia Jane McKnew; the enumerator got the gender right but the middle initials and ages wrong.  Allethia was born in November 1867 (thus 2 years old) and Alfred was born in February 1869 (thus 1 year old).  Elijah owns real property in Tuolumne County, probably in what is now Tuttletown.

Elijah Pickrell and Jane (Whittle) McKnew are my wife's great-grandparents, through their daughter Edna Catherine McKnew (1884-1974), who married Paul Schaffner in 1906 in San Francisco.
