About Ezra Thayre
Wikipedia Biographical Summary:
"...Ezra Thayre (also spelled Thayer) (October 14, 1791–?) was an early convert and leader in the Latter Day Saint movement..."
"...Born in Randolph, Vermont, Thayre was a builder of bridges, dams, and mills in the Palmyra, New York area in the 1820s. Thayre was an early convert to Joseph Smith, Jr.'s Church of Christ, being baptized by Parley P. Pratt on October 10, 1830 after he heard Joseph and Hyrum Smith speak about the Book of Mormon..."
"...Thayre married Polly Wells in 1810; Wells died in 1822. Later that same year, Thayre married Relief Wales. Thayre was the father of one child by Wells and five by Wales..."
"...The date of Thayre's death is unknown. Some sources report that he died in 1856 in Massachusetts, but these reports conflict with RLDS Church records that report him being baptized in 1860. Genealogical confusion has also resulted because Thayre's father was also named Ezra, but unlike the junior Thayre, he usually spelled his name Thayer. Other sources report Thayre's birthplace as being Randolph, Massachusetts instead of Randolph, Vermont..."
