Slave William "Billy" Burton

I'm trying to locate info on my great-great grandfather William Burton. He may have gone by Billy. He was born a slave around 1848 in Virginia or South Carolina. From what I heard he was owned by a Richmond in either VA or SC and then sold to a Burton in Western Tennessee prior to 1876. He married Amanda Randolph in 1876 in McNairy, TN. Check my family tree for list of children. The family eventually settled in Henderson (Chester County), Tennessee. Any information or detail big or small would be very appreciated. Even advice or how to get progress further in my search would help. Thank you.
