Joslin Family :: 1830 Census Delaware County, Ohio

The 1820 census of Delaware County, Ohio included only one Joslin family, that of Jonas Joslin. The 1830 census includes just two Joslin families: Jonas and James, both in Liberty township, listed seventh and fifth from the bottom of page 85. Additional research provides us with the names and ages within the square brackets.

The probable household of Jonas Joslin:
  • 1 male under 5 [1825-1830... grandson, John, age 2, born June 1828]
  • 1 male 20-29 [1800-1810... son Jonas Jr., 23, born February 1807]
  • 1 male 60-69 [1760-1770... Jonas Sr., 61, born March 1769]
  • 2 females 15-19 [1811-1815... daughter Fanny, about 20, born about 1810 and one other, name unknown]
  • 1 female 20-29 [1800-1810... Lucy, 23, wife of Jonas Jr., born August 1807]
  • 1 female 50-59 [1770-1780... Ruth, 59, wife of Jonas Sr., born 1771]
Elizabeth, aged 16-25 in the 1820 census, was married to Milton Bartholomew according to "Abstracts from Miscellaneous Delaware County Ohio Newspapers 1821-1857" extracted by Mary V. Reed, Delaware County Genealogical Society, 1992, page 38. Citing the Franklin Chronicle, Worthington, Ohio of March 19, 1821: "Married on Thursday 15th inst. in Middlebury, Delaware County by Nathan Carpenter Esq. Mr. Milton Bartholomew to Miss Elizabeth Joslin." There were no entries for the two unknown females aged 16-25 that were in the Jonas Joslin household in 1820.

From published newspaper abstracts we learned that James and Abigail Joslin were married prior to June 30, 1826. The 1850 census and additional research gives us the names and dates within square brackets.

Probable members of the James Joslin household:
  • 1 male under 5 [1825-1830... son Edwin, age 1, born December 1829]
  • 1 male 5-9 [1820-1825... son Lysander, age 5, born May 1825]
  • 1 male 30-39 [1790-1800... James, about 34, born about 1796]
  • 1 female under 5 [born 1825-1830... daughter Fanny, about 4, born about 1826]
  • 1 female 5-9 [born 1820-1825... Unknown]
  • 1 female 20-29 [born 1800-1810... wife Abigail, about 25, born about 1805]
