When searching for family of slave descendants; remember that slaves often were not on traditional records. Often, their geneology may be traced through 'Property' records.
Slave were not regarded as citizens/people...that, you must not wagons and horses were considered property.
Depending on where your great-great-grandfather was born...should help to determine which plantation he may have been born on or sold to. Looking into the city/county(or parrish)/state they were born...might be reflected in State archives...maybe even in transfer of property documents in local archives.
Also, as many decendents took as their name the Master's family...some also took on the 'town or river or familiar' name...especially after the Civil War.
