Treasure Chest Tuesday - 1800 U.S. Census Record for Joseph Oatly Household in South Kingstown, R.I.

It's Treasure Chest Tuesday - 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 1800 U.S. Census record for the Joseph Oatly household in South Kingston, Rhode Island:  

The Joseph "Oatly" household is at the top of the page:

The extracted information for the Joseph "Oatly" household is:

*  Head of household:  Joseph Oatly

*  2 males under age 10 (probably son Stephen born in 1796, and Joseph born in 1793)

*  1 male aged 10 to 15 (probably son Jonathan born in 1790)*  1 male aged 26 to 44 (certainly Joseph Oatley, born in 1756)

*  1 female under age 10 (probably daughter Mary born in 1798)

*  3 females aged 10 to 15 (probably daughter Nancy born in 1788, daughter Betsy born 1786, and daughter Hannah born 1783
*  1 female aged 26 to 44 (certainly wife Mary, born in 1765)

The source citation for this record is:

1800 United States Federal Census, Washington County, Rhode Island, South Kingstown, page 701 (stamped), Joseph Oatly household,; digital image, Ancestry.com (http://www.ancestry.com ; accessed 19 February 2005); citing National Archives Microfilm Publication M32, Roll 46.

Joseph Oatley (1756-1815) was the son of Benedict and Elizabeth (Ladd) Oatley.  He married Mary Hazard (1765-1857) in 1781, and they had 11 children between 1781 and 1806. 

Note that Joseph "Oatly" is enumerated just above several other Oatly households in a census with alphabetical ordering.

Joseph and Mary (Hazard) Oatley are my 4th great-grandparents, through their son Jonathan Oatley (1790-1872) who married Amy Champlin (1798-1865) in 1813.
