Treasure Chest Thursday - 1810 U.S. Census for Rudolph Spangler in York, Pennsylvania

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - a chance 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 1810 U.S. Census record for Rudolph Spangler in York, York County, Pennsylvania:

The Rudolph Spangler census entry is on the top page on the image above, between George Davis and Laurence Schultz:

The data extracted from this record is:
