Slaveholder 1 type

1850: Both samples
1860: All three samples

All persons.

SH1TYPE indicates the type of owner for the first listed owner of the holding. When holdings had more than one owner, we have indicated owner types for each owner in the subsequent variables SH2TYPE, SH3TYPE, etc.

SH1TYPE only provides ownership type information for the first 8 owners. A few holdings in the 1860 sample had more than 8 owners (see NOHOLDRS), but in all cases the OWNTYPE value of owners 9-14 is identical to the OWNTYPE value for owner 8 (SH8TYPE). No holdings in the 1850 sample listed more than two owners.
