Vanlandingham Plantation

I'm trying to find some history about my g-g grandfather plantatoin in Baton Rouge. Oliver C. Vanlandingham Sr. and his family had a 1,000 acre plantation in East Baton Rouge at time of Civil war. The only name I have to tie to plantation is " CORDELIA OAKS " At the close of the war Oliver Jr and his brother Ezekiel return from the war to the plantation only to find the federal troops had burned over 500 bales of cotton as well as his home and set free over 100 slaves.
Anyone who can help fill in the history of plantation or family would be welcome to hear from.
