I just found your posting. I too am researching Henry Harrison Thacker,b-Nov.26,1844, d-May 1931. He was married to
Catharine Thacker b-Mar 3, 1855, d-1945.
They married Jan. 30th 1875. Henry's parents
are George W. Thacker and Sarah Evans. I
don't have any further info. Henry and Catharine are my g-grandparents. Nina Fatima
Thacker was my grandmother. I have copies
of Henry Thacker's obit, and Henry and Catharine's 50th wedding anniversay that was
in the paper with their picture. I Also have
a copy of their marriage certificate.
I have discovered that Henry and Catharine
lived in Vinton County, and that both of their parents were from Virginia. In looking
us census in Vinton County, a large population of the Thackers are mulato.
Our family looks very much native american.
