Tucker's, the next plantation, was the residence of the father of Peter and James Sinkler; after his death the family moved to Lifeland. As an instance of the facility with which property was accumulated at that time, it may be stated that on Mr. Sinkler's death his zvidow was left in possession of one male slave. When Peter Sinkler died, and he did not pass beyond the meridian of life, he left three plantations and several hundred negroes, besides the large amount of property of which he was plundered ivhen taken prisoner by the British. His brother James was no less successful.
