And again the average slave owner did not own 8-15 slaves.

Parse it however you like, that was, in fact, the average number of slaves per owner.

No, no it wasn't.

Maybe you didn't read this:

"Well, let’s just take Kentucky and Louisiana since you already provided the numbers of slave owners. According to the 1860 census there were 225,483 and 331,726 slaves in each state respectively. That means that in Kentucky the average number of slaves per owner was 225,483/38,645 = 5.83. In Louisiana the average was 331,726/22,033 = 15."
