What happened to land when family left Louisiana after Civil War?

My g-grandfather owned 2 tracts of land in DeSoto Parish in Louisiana. He died in the Civil War. Shortly thereafter, his wife and children moved to Texas. I want to know what happened to the land he owned. Was it sold? Deeded to family? Abandoned and sold for taxes? I have the record on Ancestry where he purchased the land from the US General Land Office in 1860. How can I find what happened to this land?
