Although this photograph is labeled as "Hugh O. Thayer", note that it is the same photograph as #3464 which is labeled as "Lynn W. Thayer".

I have noted a few high school photographs of Lynn Thayer but have not been able to find any of Hugh Thayer. Looking at the photographs
I believe that both this photograph and #3464 are of Lynn W. Thayer and that this photograph is mislabeled. But since they are brothers and
possible have similar features it is possible I could be wrong. If possible comparison to existing photographs should be made for
conformation of identity. I have researched the information for Hugh O.Thayer and included it on this page.

This photograph is included in a box of hundreds of paper photographs and old cabinet card photographs, many named, some with
just first names, and many many unnamed. Many of the unnamed photographs are of the same people that are named in other
photographs and many are not. There are just too many of the unnamed photographs for me to scan due to the time it would take.
I bought the box of photographs and was told they all were from the same estate sale and thus all belonged to the same family.
Many of the unlabeled photographs are identifiable from the ones which are labeled. They seem to be divided into two groups, the
Thayer's family and related photo's from Vermont and the Sawyer/Funkhouser families and related photo's from Kansas with a few
photographs not related which were probably friends.
