Treasure Chest Thursday - 1830 U.S. Census Record for John Putman Household in Wayne, 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 1830 United States Census record for the John Putman household in Wayne, Steuben County, New York:

The John Putman entry is the 6th from the bottom of the page:

The  family information from this record is:

*  Head of household:  John Putman

*  two males aged 10 to 14 (probably sons Isaac (born 1820) and Martin (born 1816))
*  one male aged 15 to 19 (probably son Peter (born 1812))
*  one male aged 20 to 29 (unknown)
*  one male aged 40 to 49  (certainly John, born 1785)
*  two females aged 0 to 4 (probably daughters Martha (born 1829) and Mary (born 1825))
*  one female aged 5 to 9 (probably daughter Rebecca (born 1822))
*  one female aged 10 to 14 (probably daughter Elizabeth (born 1818))
*  one female aged 30 to 39 (certainly wife Sarah, born 1792)

The source citation for this record is:

1830 United States Federal Census, Steuben County, New York, Population Schedule, Wayne town, Page 318, John Putman household; online database and digital image, ( : accessed 10 December 2015); citing National Archives Microfilm Publication M19, Roll 107.

John Putman (1785-1863) was the son of Peter and Sarah (Kinnan) Putman, who moved from New Jersey to central New York before 1810.  John married Sarah Martin (1792-1860) in about 1810 in Seneca County, New York.  They had seven children between 1812 and 1829 in Steuben County, New York.  The John Putman family moved to Norfolk County, Ontario in about 1834 and died there.

John and Sarah (Martin) Putman are my 4th great-grandparents, through their daughter Elizabeth Puitman (1818-1895) who married Alexander Sovereen (1814-1907) on 3 March 1840 in Norfolk County, Ontario.  

My biographical sketch for John Putman is in 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks - Week 102: #126 John Putman (1785-1863)  and my sketch for Sarah (Martin) Putman is in 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks - Week 103: #127 Sarah (Martin) Putman (1792-1860).
