Treasure Chest Thursday - 1810 United States Census for Humphry White Household in Glocester, R.I.

  It's Treasure Chest Thursday - time 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 U.S. Census record for Humphrey White enumerated in Glocester, Providence County, Rhode Island:

The snippet for the Humphry White household is the 8th one down the page:

The extracted information from this record for the Humphry White household is:

*  3 free white males under age 10
*  1 free white male aged 10-15
*  2 free white males aged 16 to 25
*  1 free white male over age 45
*  2 free white females under age 10
*  1 free white female aged 10-15
*  2 free white females aged 16-25
*  1 free white female over age 45.

The source citation for this record is:

1810 United States Federal Census, Providence County, Rhode Island, Glocester town, page 473 (penned), Humphry White household; digital image, (; citing National Archives Microfilm Publication M292, Roll 58.

Who were the young persons enumerated in the Humphry White household?  If they were children of Humphrey White (1757-1814) and Sibel (Kirby) White (1764-1848), who married in 1786 in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, then they are probably:

*  Meribah White (c1787-????) (female aged 16-25)
*  Benjamin White (c1789-1863) (male aged 16-25)
*  David White (c1793-1859) (male aged 16-25)
*  Elizabeth White (c1795-1841) (female aged 16-25)
*  Martha White (c1797-1841) (female aged 10-15)
*  Humphrey White (c1797-????) (male aged 10-15)
*  Nancy White (c1798-????) (female aged 10-15)
*  Rhoda White (c1800-1862) (female under age 10)
*  Jonathan White (c1803-1850 (male under aged 10)
*  William White (c1807-1866) (male under aged 10)

The enumeration has one more male child under age 10.  

Humphrey White (c1757-1814) is certainly the head of household and is listed as over 45 years, so he would be aged 52.

Sibel Kirby (1764-1848) is certainly the female listed as over 45 years, sso she would be 46 years old.

Humphrey White (c1757-1814) and Sibel (Kirby) White (1764-1848) are my 4th great-grandparents.  I am descended through their son, Jonathan White (c1803-1850) who married Miranda Wade (1803-1850) in about 1823 in Rhode Island.
