Seeking slave inventory of Jane Margaret (Scott) Adams, Richland County, SC

I am looking for the slave inventory or any information to the slaves that were owned by Jane Margaret (Scott) Adams who was the wife of Governor James Hopkins Adams of Richland County, South Carolina. I believe that my gggrandfather Richard (Dick) Scott b. 1830/1 was her property. I have found a petition of her brother, John Scott filed in 1824 and she is one of the defendants and there is a slave named Dick. Dick is not on the petition filed in 1831 by Mary E. Scott Davis against her. I think that Dick was given to John in 1827. My interest in Jane is because of a document that names the slaveowners of former slaves and Dick Scott b 1831 says he was the property of Gov. Adams but he is not listed as his former slave. Any information is greatly appreciated.
