It isn't likely that he was merely a iron worker, and owned slaves...slaves were expensive, and an iron worker was simply a laboring job, not for a man who owned slaves. Much more likely that he rented farmland, and used the slaves to work it for him...I suppose he could have owned some sort of an iron works....but an owner, not a laborer....and, a man who owned slaves wouldn't have had slaves to do the farm work while he toiled elsewhere as an laborer, elsewhere.
