Treasure Chest Thursday - 1810 U.S. Census Record for Martin Carringer Household in Mercer County, 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 United States Census record for the Martin Carringer household in Sandy Creek township, Mercer County, Pennsylvania:

The Martin Carringer entry is near the bottom of the page (second line from the bottom):

The  Martin Carringer family information from this record is:

* Head of household:  Martin Carringer

*  3 males under age 10 years (probably sons Henry born in 1800; Soloman born in 1802; Joseph born in 1805)
*  1 male aged 10 to 15 years (probably son George born in 1795)
*  1 male aged 16 to 26 years (probably son Jacob, born in 1790)
*  1 male aged over 45 years (certainly Martin, born in about 1758)

*  1 female aged 10 to 15 years (probably daughter Calli born in 1797)

*  1 female aged 16 to 25 years (probably daughter Catherine born in 1792)*  1 female aged 26 to 44 years (certainly wife Molly Carringer, born in about 1768)

The source citation for this record is:

1810 United States Federal Census, Mercer County, Pennsylvania, San Creek township, Page 945 (penned), Martin Carringer household; digital image, ( : accessed 28 April 2015); citing National Archives Microfilm Publication M292, Roll 52.

Martin Carringer (about 1758-1835) married Maria Magdalena "Molly" Hoax (1768-1851) in 1785, and they had eight children between 1785 and 1805, with all born before the 1810 census. 

Martin and Molly (Hoax) Carringer are my 4th great-grandparents, through their son Henry Carringer (1800-1879) who married Sarah Feather (1804-1848).
