Betty Tucker

Betty Tucker 28 is mustered immediately next to Jane Thompson [Tucker] who we presume is her mother. She is not listed in the BON so no owner is named but we presume she Betty in Colonel Tucker's slave inventory in 1767 and and that she is the Betty who runs from Joanna Tucker in 1776. She would be much older than 28. The tithable lists suggest she is closer to 48. Her absent husband is probably James Tucker who may be dead or working away from Birchtown at the time of the muster.
