Does anyone know who was the Peter Thacker in the following Amherst Co. land record?

page 76. 15 Oct. 1778. Jos Goodwin and wife Frances, AC, to Chas. Reynolds, AC, for lear 200, 500 acres on Harris Creek, Lines: Peter Thacker, Geo. Carrington, Richard Peters, Jas. Crouse, Pettis Thacker. Part of 670 acres pat. to Geo Carrington 20 June 1763. Witness: Obediah Trent, Henry Trent, Dudley Callaway, JNO. B. Trent. (note: middle initial of Obediah is given as H. ) Original del. to JNO. Reyonlds.

If Peter was at least age 21, then he was born BEF 1759. He therefore could not be the son of Nathaniel Thacker who married Cassandra (or Casse or Cassie or Kesiah) Evans on 27 Feb 1767 in Goochland Co., VA.
