Oswego County's: Guide To Government

Luny Thayer

Parish, NY

We notice in the communication of F. W. Squires, of this week, in regard to the length of time some individuals have served as Justice of the Peace of this County. Honorable Luny Thayer of this town, has served in that capacity for over 30 years, and during that time, he never had a decision reversed by a higher court. Can much be said for any other individual who has served for so long? Besides this, he has served four terms as Supervisor of the Town, four or five years as Justice of the Sessions, and one year as Member of Assembly. His name is to be found in Hammond's History of the Political Parties of this State, in regards to the election of the Honorable Horatio Seymour, Speaker of the Assembly in 1845. He and another individual called in Governor Wright to know if Mr. Seymour's election would be offensive to him. The reply was no! For many years, Mr. Thayer was the "war horse" of the Democracy of this Town. Of late, he has somewhat retired from the political field, still he is not without anxiety for his old political comrades' safety and honor. O. D. D. - March 6, 1875.
