Treasure Chest Tuesday -- 1810 U.S. Census Record of the Burjes Metcalf Household in Piermont, N.H.

This week's Tuesday Treasure is the 1810 United States census record of the Burjes Metcalf household in Piermont, Grafton County, New Hampshire:

The Burjes Metcalf entry is the 8th entry down the top page:

The extracted information from this record for Burjes Metcalf is:

*  Head of household:  Burjes Metcalf

*  Number of males aged 16 to 26:  2  [perhaps sons Joseph born about 1781 and Chandler born about 1798]
*  Number of males over age 45:  1  [certainly Burgess, born in 1741]

*  Number of females over age 45:  1  [certainly wife Jerusha, born in about 1750]

The source citation for this census record is:

1810 United States Federal Census, Grafton County, New Hampshire, population schedule, Piermont, page 364 (stamped), Burjes Metcalf household, digital image, Ancestry.com (http://www.ancestry.com : accessed 29 December 2016); citing National Archives Microfilm Publication M292, Roll 23.

This census record is written semi-alphabetically, so it is impossible to know who the neighbors are.  The Cyrus Metcalf and Burjes Metcalf Jr. households are the other Metcalfs on the page.

Burgess (1741-1816) and Jerusha (1750-1817) (--?--) Metcalf are my 5th great-grandparents, through their daughter Mary "Polly" Metcalf (1780-1855) who married Amos Underhill (1772-1865).
