Arkansas Mortality Schedules
When information for the federal censuses of 1850, 1860, 1870, and 1880 was collected, enumerators were directed to ask if anyone in each household had died during the 12 months prior to the taking of the census. If so, their names were to be listed on a separate schedule called the "mortality schedules."
These books list the person's name, age, sex, state of birth, month of death, cause of death, and the county of residence. In the 1850 and 1860 schedules, slaves are included. If someone asks, "What censuses list slaves by name?" The answer is the 1850 and 1860 mortality schedules. It's one of the few sources to do so. The slave schedules for 1850 and 1860 list owners' names, not individual slave names, but the mortality schedules list full information for slaves.
