Duncan family slaves in Nelson County

Classification: Query
Helping friend research her family line which we have traced to, we believe, the Coleman Duncan family in Nelson County, Kentucky. Her great great grandfather James Duncan appears to have been born around 1865 on the plantation of Coleman Duncan. This James Duncan then sharecropped on that farm and ultimately purchased part of the land for his own.
I am new to searching for African American genealogy and unsure how to proceed finding names of slaves or slave cemetaries in that area. Can someone assist?
