This is a link to an interesting article about free persons of color who were slave owners. Just past midway through the article you will find a list of at least some of these slave owners in Louisiana.
Dear Ms. Prather,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1830 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1840 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1850 Census (with separate slave schedules for those states in which slavery was protected by law), the Population Schedules for the 1860 Census (with separate slave schedules for those states in which slavery was protected by law) in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) that may contain information about free people of color who were slave holders in Louisiana. For access to the non-digitized schedules, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at email@example.com.
