Treasure Chest Thursday - 1830 U.S. Census for Daniel Spangler Household in Sandy Creek, 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 1830 U.S. Census record for the Daniel Spangler household in Sandy Creek, Mercer County, Pennsylvania:

The Daniel Spangler census entry is the 9th  from the top entry on the image above:

The data extracted from this record is:

Head of household:  Danl Spangler

*  1 male aged 40 to 49 [certainly Daniel, born in 1781]

*  2 females under age 5 [probably daughter Dorothea born in 1827, and an unknown female child]
*  2 females aged 5 to 9 [probably daughter Sarah born in 1824 and daughter Elizabeth born 1822]
*  1 female aged 10 to 14 [probably Anna Maria born in 1818]
*  1 female aged 30 to 39 [certainly wife Elizabeth, born in 1796]

The source citation for this record is:

1830 United States Federal Census, Population Schedule, Mercer County, Pennsylvania, Sandy Creek township, Page 237, Daniel Spangler household, online database and digital image, (, citing National Archives Microfilm Publication M19, Roll 149.

Daniel Spangler (1781-1851) was my 3rd great-grandfather, who married Elizabeth King (1796-1863)  in 1815 in York, Pennsylvania and they had ten children between 1818 and 1841.  I am descended through daughter Rebecca Spangler (1832-1901), who married David Jackson Carringer in 1851 in Mercer County.
