Fairview Township
The 1852 census included columns for "Colored Males" and "Colored Females," but none were listed for any of the townships.

CENSUS TIPS: Population censuses are arranged by state and within each state by county; within each county by township or enumeration district; and within each district households are listed as they were taken by the enumerator as he went door to door.
