John Thayer, father to 2 children, was born at New york. John's partner was Ruth C Hayes, and they gave birth to Orletus C. Thayer and Ormenus H. Thayer. He died at Michigan.

"Until the autumn of 1844 the township of Casco had not heard the ring of the pioneer's axe, and until the spring of 1845 had received no permanent white settlers. It was John Thayer and his two sons who led the way in the peaceful invasion of Casco, and it was upon section 2, where Thayer had bought land, that they first made a clearing, in the fall of 1844. While engaged in this work they made their home at Levi Loomis', in Ganges, where Thayer's family abided until the summer of 1845."

"John Thayer built a cabin on section 2, and brought his family in shortly after the McDowells made their settlement. With him also lived James Donnelly, who became a settler upon a 10-acre tract which he bought of Thayer."

"Orletus, one of the sons of John Thayer, who was the first person to be married in the township, took for a wife Clarissa, a daughter of James W. Wadsworth, of Ganges. Their daughter, Eutheria [sic. Should be Lutheria], now a resident of Wisconsin, was the first white child born in the township, and Mrs. Hayes, the mother of Mrs. John Thayer, was the first white person who died in the same territory. She was buried on Mr. Thayer's farm, where her remains rest to this day." (History of Allegan and Barry counties, Michigan, by Crisfield Johnson. D W Ensign and Company, Philadelphia, 1880.)
