[SC] Migratory Pattern to MS 1870's

:O I've been looking at some of my old notes and it has always made me wonder HOW and by what means did my ancestors come from SC to MS by the 1870 census.

My grgrandma Lucy Vance was born in Shaws Creek, Sc 1852. Family story said she had been raped by her x-slaveholder and she did have a mixed heritage son. She also had 3 other daughters. (2) Annie and Adell are documented on census as being born in MS. After looking at their pictures, they all (3 sisters) were short in stature and looked a lot a like, dark complexion. Lucy Vance supposedly was married to Anthony Vance, but I'm kind of sure that wasn't true because her birth surname and her siblings all carried the VANCE surname.
1 daughter Eugenia/Gene popped up on the 1910 MS census in the household with this family. I have no idea where she was born or why at the late age given she was documented. So I've always wondered about her heritage. She had no children and was not legally married to a "Mr Agnue/Agnew'.

I guess what I am asking is can someone give me a story or idea as to migrarory patterns of slaves could have caused them to them end up in Monroe Ms by 1900.

In history, what was going on then?
