How should i handle this situation? Somewhat unique.
By chance, one of my baby sitters saw my Poche book sitting on a table. She then proceeded to tell me abouther family's land, that Sherman's troops had either camped and or terrorized in 1865. The house was spared burning. She showed me the location on Google earth and its definitely in the right spot (ive been researching this same area already). We talked a while, and she explained to me how interested she was in the history. She invited me to come detect the place with her following me around which is all great.
Im thinking she might want to keep everything i might find, if i find anything at all. Should i establish some kind of deal before hand? 1 for you, 1 for me? I get plates, you get bullets? lol. Not that I will find anything at all, but it seems promising enough. I appreciate her interest, otherwise i might not have been able to go.

I'd be straight and to the point. Tell her that you detect because you also collect, therefore if you find anything, you'd like to be able to keep it for your collection, but since it is her family property, you will be willing to share items of interest with them as well.

Absolutely get it all out up front. See what she wants and tell her what you expect before you even go. You better check to see if other family members have a say as well.
When I was younger we used to have a way to divide things. One person would make two 'equal' piles and the other would choose which one they wanted.
