Someone had sent me an email listing the death date of Edwin Napoleon Thacker (b. Oct 15, 1858) as 1929. Since he is alive in the 1930 census, I suspect it may not be correct. He was the owner of what is now McQueen's store on US route 33 in lower Louisa County. He was known as "Uncle Maumpie" to the family. The Thacker land was adjacent to the store and a small family cemetery sits a few hundred yards away, with about half marked and half unmarked stones. I have a very large amount of information about this family. Since I am currently deployed, I can't run up to Louisa to check his death date. I was hoping someone might have it. The Thacker family intertwines with the Tate family extensively in Louisa County.
