another Callaway descendant

Hi. I'm a descendant of Cicero Marion Callaway from Pontotoc, Mississippi, through his daughter Frances Sophronia Callaway Peden, who was my GGM. I, too, though raised on stories of the south (from an anti-Jim Crow mother), have been looking for more info on the humans our ancestors owned. Please let me know, anyone, if you've found a good source for the ones in Wilkes County, Georgia; South Carolina or Mississippi.
