Morgan County slave owners in decreasing order of slaves owned in 1850.

Slaveholding Households by number held.

Of the 57 households with slaves 18 had just 1, 15 had just 2, 8 had just 3, and 7 had just 4 for a total of 100. That leaves just 9 households with 5 or more. Those 9 households held 87, or 46.5% of all the Morgan County slaves, even though they constituted only 15.8% of the slaveholding households. To illustrate further 16 households held 61.5% of the slaves whereas 41 households held only 38.5% of the total.
