Our GEDCOM focuses mainly on direct ancestors of my wife and me. I also have lines who were believed to be ancestral but later found to be unlikely.

  • ID: I14215
  • Name: Nathaniel (parent theory) Thacker
  • Sex: M
  • Change Date: 26 DEC 2010
  • Birth: 1 JAN 1741/1742 in Goochland Co., VA 1 2
  • Death: AFT 12 APR 1805 in Pittsylvania Co., VA 3 2
  • Burial: 1806 Pittsylvania Co., VA 4
  • Note:
    He was a Revolutionary War soldier who guarded prisoners of British Gen John Burgoyne's army, which was poorly equipped and untrained for frontier fighting and surrendered at Saratoga on 17 Oct, 1777. Nathaniel was a member of the Albemarle Co., VA, Militia and had an Albemarle Co. pension. He's on the 1787 Pittsylvania Co., VA, tax list. His 12 Apr 1805 Pittsylvania Co. ("weak of body") will was proved 21 Jul 1806. My correspondent, Debra Anderson, has that his children were named in his will, based on her source Janet Thacker. My correspondent, Glenda Thacker, kindly shared her transcription of Nathaniel's will.

    I have added his children to my database because daughters, Lavina & Molly, went to Grainger Co., TN, where my wife's brick-wall, Edward Thacker, married in 1798. Lavina, and husband Dedmon Malicoat, resided in 1830 Grainger Co. I once mistakenly had Lavina's brother, Peter Thacker, in 1810 Grainger Co. See my notes for Nathaniel's daughter, Molly, who was also apparently residing in the 1830 Grainger Co., TN, household of husband, Winston Adkins.

    My source, Garry Brown, has that Nathaniel was named as one of three ordered by the Louisa Co., VA, Court to work on a road. Nathaniel or Nathan Thacker was named on the tax list for Trinity Parish in Louisa Co., VA, for 1768, 1770, 1771, 1773, 1774, 1776, and 1778. Nathaniel & wife Cathandrew (sic) sold considerable land in Louisa Co. in 1778 before he first purchased land in Pittsylvania Co., VA, in 1781 and appeared there on the 1781 tax list.

    A descendant of the subject Nathaniel Thacker has Y-DNA results for 37 markers listed on Ysearch with ID 4YCZM. He is the brother of my correspondent, Carolyn Thacker Wilcoxen. He's obviously closely related to kit # 52743 (unknown testee, patriarch and contact person) listed on the THACKER surname project because their results match for 36 out of 37 markers. Kit #52743's results also match 36/37 with those of a testee from the Thacker line of the wife of my correspondent, Len Mazarowski, who descends from another Nathaniel Thacker, b. 1811 TN, who I also have in my database. I have them all as descendants, UNPROVED by documentation. of the immigrant William Thacker, my PROPOSED father of the subject Nathaniel Thacker.
