Hello John Evans,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
As the previous responders indicated, you may wish to search Ancestry or FamilySearch for the U.S. Census. There may be a fee for using Ancestry. Instead, please check for access at your local library as many library systems subscribe to these sites, making them free for their patrons.
In addition to the links provided above, we searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1850 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) that may contain information about Carbondale, PA. For more information about the non-digitized schedules, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at email@example.com.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
For information about the U.S. Census, see the Census Bureau technical documentation and questionnaires as well as the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) page on Census Records. This page provides a link to instructions for ordering reproductions of NARA records, including individual census pages, for a fee. Unfortunately NARA has suspended reproduction and digitization services until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please see the COVID-19 Updates page on Archives.gov for more information.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
