During the 1850 census, a separate 'slave schedule' enumerated the enslaved people in the United States. Enslaved people were not listed by name and instead were listed by slaveowner in each county and election district.
Census records are preserved at the National Archives and Records Administration, which makes digitized copies of the censuses available through digitization partners. These partners include FamilySearch and HeritageQuest (accessible with most local library cards directly from website; for example, see Wicomico Public Libraries' database listings).
