Plantations Index

Killarney Plantation was located on Lake St. John north of the Red River near Trinity northeast of Helena Plantation (now Ferriday) in Concordia Parish, Louisiana.

Farrar Benjamin Conner was born in 1834 on the Clifford Plantation, Adams County, Mississippi. Clifford Plantation was then the home of his parents, William Carmichael Conner Jr. and Jane Elizabeth Boyd Gustine Conner. Farrar married Mary Louise McMurran, daughter of John Thompson McMurran and Mary Louisa Turner of Woodlands Plantation, Adams County, Mississippi. Killarney Plantation was originally the property of the McMurran’s.

Killarney Plantation Slaves: Women and Children Taken to Texas during the Civil War

Transcribed and Submitted by Matthew Arrington
Stampp, Kenneth M. 1989 Records of Antebellum Southern Plantations from the Revolution through the Civil War: Series I, Part 3, Lemuel P. Conner and Family Papers, 1818-1865, Adams County, MS and Concordia Parish, LA.

Farrar took slaves from Killarney Plantation in 1862 to an area on the Brazos River in McLennan County, Texas. It is believed that the slaves were taken to Texas to keep them out of the hands of Union troops who had moved into the Natchez area. Farrar started a second Rifle Point Plantation near Waco in McLennan County, Texas. A family letter gives information that Henry LeGrand Conner, Farrar’s brother, and a trusted Conner slave from Natchez took the Conner slaves from the Rifle Point Plantation, Concordia Parish, Louisiana to Texas. There are no ages attached to the names on this list.
