Treasure Chest Thursday - 1810 U.S. Census Record for Peter Putman Household in Ulysses, New York

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 United States Census record for the Peter Putman household in Ulysses, Seneca County, New York:

The Peter Putman entry is the second entry on the bottom page:

The  family information from this record is:

*  Head of household:  Peter Putman

*  one male under age 10
*  one male aged 10 to 15 (perhaps son Isaac)
*  one male aged 16 to 25 (perhaps son David, Peter or John)
* one male aged 25 to 44 (perhaps son Victor)
* one male over age 45 (certainly Peter Putman)

* one female aged 10 to 15
* one female aged 16 to 25 (perhaps a wife of a son)
* one female over age 45 (likely Sarah (Kinnan) Putman)

The source citation for this record is:

1810 United States Federal Census, Seneca County, New York, population schedule, Ulysses town, page 297, Peter Putman household, indexed database and digital image, ( : accessed 10 December 2015); citing National Archives Microfilm Publication M292, Roll 36.

Peter Victorse Putman (1760-1855) married Sarah Kinnan (1760-1841) in 1780 in Wantage, New Jersey.  They had five known sons (all mentioned above) and perhaps others - a younger son (under 10), a young daughter (aged 10 to 15), and perhaps an older daughter (aged 16 to 26) in this 1810 census..  Or perhaps those entries were from other families. 

Peter and Sarah (Kinnan) Putman are my 5th great-grandparents, through their son John Putman (1785-1863) who married Sarah Martin (1792-1860) in about 1810 in Seneca County, New York.
