  • Notes 
    • - 1850 census: Harriet, 12, resides in Gouverneur with her parents and family.

      - 1860 Census: Harriet, 20, and daughter Caroline E. Thayer, 2, reside with John Thayer, 26, his wife Caroline, 24, and their daughter Roda Ann at Fowler, NY, St. Lawrence County, close to where Robert Thayer is working on the Oliver Lennox farm in Dekalb. Oliver is married to Robert's older sister, Julia.

      - Harriet Thayer's death record from the Ogdensburg City Clerk states that her father was John Rehor and that her mother was Mary, both were born in Canada.

      - According to Jennifer Gonnuscio, descended from Robert/Harriet's daughter Caroline, Harriet was residing in Toledo in 1896 when she witnessed her daughter's widow's pension. However, we know she was in Ogdensburg in 1890 and in 1900, because she is listed in both those city directories as boarding at 85 King St. and working as a laundrywoman. It is likely she returned to Ogdensburg prior to 1886, when her daughter Delia married at age 17 in June of that year.

      - Ogdensburg Daily Journal: May 5, 1900: The funeral of Mrs. Harriet Thayer took place this morning from the Congregational Church, Rev. A. M. Weight officiating. The remains were sent to Gouverneur, the former home of the deceased, for interment.

      - A document, "Special Schedule-Surviving Soldiers, Sailors, and Marines and Widows, etc." filed in June, 1890 in the Ogdensburg Civil Division, shows: "Harriet, widow of John Thayer, private, 16NY Inf., enlisted 1861."

      - Daily Journal: May 9, 1900: Gouverneur, May 7: Mrs. Harriet Thayer, mother of A. F. Thayer of this place, died at the home of her son, John Thayer, at Ogdensburg, Thursday (May 3.) Mrs. Thayer resided in this place for many years. Her maiden name was Rehor, and she was born at Ogdensburg 63 years ago (1837.) Internment will be in Riverside Cemetery here tomorrow afternoon. Three sons, A. F. of Gouverneur, John and Charles Thayer of Ogdensburg, and a daughter, Mrs. Carrie Rooney, of Toledo, Ohio, survive.
