Information on William Thacker is scarce. He is listed in the census reports for Scott Co., KY, along with his family in 1870 and 1880. His age at the time of the census reports would have him born in 1836. He Is listed in the 1900 census for Fleming Co., KY. He owned a farm near Poplar Plains. There are three Williams I have found in central Kentucky who are nearly correct in age. The closest match is the son of Nathaniel Thacker and Polly Johnson from Grainger Co., TN. I have other reasons to believe this is the correct match, however I have been unable to prove or disprove this.
