abstracted by Mary Hoit Abbe with assistance from Christine Hamm

Listed below is an alphabetical list of the slave owners found in Schedule 2, often called the “Slave Schedule”, for Clarke County, Georgia in the 1850 U.S. Federal Census.

The number of slaves refers to the number owned at the location listed. It is likely that some of these persons owned slaves in more than one district of Clarke County and in other counties. The page number refers to the page the person is listed on in the original schedule.
