Darrington Plantation

Classification: Query
The census establishes my relative was on the Prison Farm Precinct 3, Brazoria, Texas in 1880. Is Ellis Planation/Prison Farm and Darrington Plantation/Prison farm the same prison farm, thus part of Sugar Land community? According to the Handbook of Texas Convict labor worked the Ellis Planation until 1914 when the company sold the property to the state of Texas.

Also, are there a record (s) of where the prisoners were buried or pictures of the prisoners?

Thanks
