Suggestion on finding land record?

Hello - I wonder if anyone has any suggestions on how I can find property records for my ancestor, Caleb Lewis (1780 - 1841?). Supposedly, he was a Quaker who owned quite a few slaves in Newberry County, SC. His conscious got the better of him, and he moved to Ohio with his wife Susanna in July, 1806, freeing his slaves.

I'd like to see if he really did own a larger plantation with slaves.
