For plantation records, estate sales, plantation sales you might want to try the Opelousas courthouse. It is the parish seat of government in St. Landry and has a lot of those records. It should also have death, birth, and marriage records. They do for my slave ancestors. And by the way, St. Charles College (now St. Charles Borromeo Church) owned my slave ancestors and they had my ancestors baptized as Catholic. If your ancestors were baptized as Catholic back then, then I would ask them to look for copies of the baptismal certificates. I got copies from them for almost all of my slave ancestors.
