If anyone can provide information about where that data is now,
it would be greatly appreciated.         PHL
This is the first instance I have ever heard of involving blacks who were slaves being found in a poorhouse census. Really has very significant sociological/legal implications. Since the slaves were the property of their owners, it would seem that the owners should have been responsible for their support.  There is an important historical story here -- and I hope we can learn it and share it!                                                                       PHL
