    Sources:
    1. Title: United States Census - 1850
      Note: The 1850 Census is the first to record all members of a household, although family relationships are not explicitly indicated; important other information, such as birthplace is also recorded. Like the earlier enumerations, ages and household composition was supposed to be as of 1 June 1850, and enumerators were much better trained than with earlier censuses. However, actual enumeration occurred many months after that date, and errors do occur. In addition, as with other censuses of the era, the enumerator may have gotten information from neighbors instead of an actual household member. Slave schedules were separate. The entire 1850 Census is essentially extant.
