Brogden/don-Betheas in Marion Cnty, SC 1830-1890

I need to know of any records that show names of farm laborers who worked on farms owned by Betheas in Marion County, SC in the 1800s. My gr-gr-grandfather, John Brogdon/den, is on Marion County Censuses from 1830-1880 and is buried in the old Dothan Church Cemetery (b. 1794, d. 1890), now located in Dillon Cnty and owned by the Bethea family. I've found NO OTHER records for him--marriage, land, etc. I'm wondering if he worked for the Betheas since he lived near them and is buried in a cemetery along with many Betheas. John's children supposedly were 1/2 Indian (his daughter was my gr-grandmother), but his family is always listed as "White." On the 1850 census, John lived in Marion Cnty and was a "Farmer" with real estate valued at $800; on the 1860 he lived in Mrn Cnty at McKinnes Bridge P.O. and was a "Blacksmith" with no real estate valued and personal estate valued at $150; on the 1870 he lived in Mrn Cnty, Harleesville, at Reedy Creek P.O., was a "Farm Laborer" with no property values listed (neither did anyone else on the page); in 1880 John lived in Harleesville, Mrn Cnty, was a "Farmer" and no property values were required. I will appreciate any assistance with this, ALSO would appreciate any suggestions regarding where to look next for records of John Brogdon-den. Thank you!
