Request to correct indexing of U.S. Census Slave Schedule, 1860, Washington County, North Carolina
For U.S. Census Slave Schedule, 1860, Washington County, North Carolina, "Other" district, there are 26 pages. Starting on page 22, there is a listing for slave owner, Josiah Collins. The list of the people that he enslaved who he is linked to is incomplete. He enslaved over 300 people, continuing to page 26. I request that these enslaved people be indexed to him rather than to unknown enslavers. This will help descendants find their ancestors.
"By the 1860s, Somerset consisted of 14,500 acres (about 2,000 acres cultivated), housed 328 slaves, and included over 50 structures (including a hospital, a kitchen complex, a laundry, and a dairy). - https://northcarolinahistory.org/encyclopedia/josiah-collins-iii-1808-1863/
