The 1850 Census Of Georgia Slave Owners

( 1 )

Overview

In 1850 and again in 1860, the U.S. government carried out a census of slave owners and their property. Transcribed by Mr. Cox, the 1850 U.S. slave census for Georgia is important for two reasons. First, some of the slave owners appearing here do not appear in the 1850 U.S. census of population for Georgia and are thus "restored" to the population of 1850.

In fact, by far the largest number of slave owners were concentrated in Glynn County, a coastal county known for its rice production.

    No-frills primary source.

    The 1850 Census Of Georgia Slave Owners compiled by Jack F. Cox is a straightforward genealogical reference listing an 1850 census compiled for each of the 93 counties of Georgia at the time. Alphabetized by the last name of each given slaveowner or overseer, The 1850 Census Of Georgia Slave Owners states nothing more than the owner's name, their county, and the number of slaves owned in each entry. A one-page introduction is the only other material in this no-frills primary source.
