If you're thinking in terms of the "Tara" in the movie GONE WITH THE WIND, that was created by David O. Selznick, in Hollywood. Most plantations were large farms in the South. (Not all antebellum Southerners owned slaves, btw.) On the census, people could (and do) tell the census taker whatever they wanted about what their occupation might be.
